Abstract :

Who are we? What are our values? Who is our customer? How do we best serve them? What about tomorrow? What are the opportunities and what are the threats? When we close our eyes, who do we see ourselves as? Where are we now? How do I get from here to there? What do I need? How long will it take? Where do I start? How do I get everyone else aligned with the vision? Do they understand? Do they even care? Are you ready for the change? "There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."-Niccolo Machiavelli. In the pursuit of operational excellence, we need to understand the circumstances in context. We need to learn to observe the parameters of a situation. We need to orient ourselves and the resources at our disposal to engage. We have to condition ourselves to assess a situation and decide the course of action quickly and decisively. All the while building wisdom, which is the sum of all applied knowledge."Company cultures are like country cultures. Never try to change one. Try, instead, to work with what you've got"-PeterDrucker. In this talk, we will discuss what is needed to; Cut-across the corporate silos and become a cohesive unit. We will show how to define, then communicate the goals (future state). We will explore a model for creating the necessary state of readiness to pursue those goals. And we will discuss how to achieve a condition of preparedness to effectively and efficiently address opportunities and threats that might present them during the journey.
