Creating the Organization of the Future – Part 3: Getting Started on the Journey – Getting Concrete on the Direction
Part 3 of the 3 part webinar series with Bernie Jaworski
As Peter Drucker noted many years ago, organizations crave stability and resist change. Thus, it is not surprising that we are often asked by executives to guide them through a direction setting and leading change process. Of course, every journey to transform is unique and should be customized to fit the particular industry and organization. In this workshop, we will provide you general guidance on how to “get started” on the journey. In part one of the workshop, we introduce a seven-step process to set an organizations’ direction (mission, vision, purpose). In part two of the workshop, we introduce an eight-step process to create (or revise) an organizations’ value and culture. These processes are robust that have proved effective to benefit for-profits, nonprofits, and other organization forms.
