    Description:

    Effective Analysis Tools that Involve and Engage People

    An appropriate subtitle to this session could be,

    Opportunity Identification is Fundamental . . . but, It’s Not Enough.”

    This session presents organization mapping as a tool that supports an outside-in approach to organization-results focused opportunity analysis for achieving valuable and sustainable performance objectives.  That is, organization-results focused opportunity specification is the critical first step.  And, Organization Mapping is a tool that helps users to describe the essential big picture, while also establishing the essential framework for defining the requirements for the internal moving parts that drive organization-level performance.

    However, though absolutely critical, opportunity identification is not enough.  After all, it’s realizing improved or targeted results (performance) that’s the reason for undertaking analysis in the first place.  So, this session will also focus on using organization maps to engage and involve the people, at all levels, who ARE the organization, to take the actions required to resolve problems, remove obstacles and/or capitalize on opportunities that enable achievement of improved results.

    Organization Maps have helped us over the last 30 years to help our clients achieve improvement objectives, . . . and then some.  Join us to learn more about this very visual and engaging tool.
