Whether your focus is people, processes, technology or organizations, the starting point and ultimate litmus test of our ability to improve performance lies in the understanding of value creation. Rick Rummler will share an approach and a set of models that have proven effective in understanding and improving the value created by organizations and businesses of all types and sizes.
Regardless of the scope or constraints of a performance improvement initiative, It’s critical to make the connection to organization and business value. Doing so allows for better prioritization of efforts and investments, fosters alignment of stakeholders, and reduces the likelihood of unintended consequences.
The approach and models are based on the teaching and work of Dr. Geary Rummler. Rick will share his experience applying them in a wide variety of organizations and businesses including his current focus – a healthcare startup.
