Master Class: Effective Organizational Management

Everyone at some time in their consulting career will encounter an organizational issue that threatens the success of their effort – and perhaps inadvertently, their reputation. In other words, your client may blame you for their own inability to implement your recommendations.

For example, most organizations have a strategic plan. But 70% fail to achieve their strategic goals, and only 5% of organization achieve their strategic objectives. These same failure rates apply for major organizational change initiatives. This indicates a fundamental underlying cause at the root of the organization’s inability to implement change.

So what sets top performing organizations aside from the others? If managers all want to do well, why aren’t all organizations performing at their best?

In this master class, you will be introduced to the nine elements of the Effective Managers™ organization performance model to help you better manage your consulting projects. 

Learning Objectives
