Executive and Professional Development

Building Organizational Excellence

(formerly Effective Organizational Structure and Process))

Market forces, globalization, and advancing smart technology are putting tremendous pressures on organizations to be innovative, adaptable and responsive to ever-changing wants and needs.

Delivering the right output at the right time is essential for success. The result is more demanding workplaces that are flexible and swift in meeting market demand. These workplaces require that problems/opportunities are quickly identified and appropriate actions taken.

What’s needed? Structures, processes and relationships that are strong yet fluid enough to deal with the rapid pace of change. Traditional business models no longer work.

Participants in this seminar will develop competencies in how to maximize performance by aligning structures, tasks and culture.

Building Organizational Excellence is a required seminar for the Certificate in Managing Today's Workforce.
