This webinar is broken down to take you on a journey from understanding the necessary culture of leading organizations, to why such a culture brings leading success, to tools and strategies that you can utilize to get started in shifting your organization's culture.
We begin with exploring the fundamental capabilities, characteristics and behaviours that are necessary for an organization to make true advances in performance, as documented in Steven Spear's book High-Velocity Edge. Then, insights will be shared from Daniel Pink's book Drive, to give an indication as to why these strategies work. We'll relate these lessons to what is currently happening in portfolio, program and project management, and then introduce some strategies to break from the trend of poor performance.
