Brilliant leadership, cutting-edge innovation, and a highly engaged global workforce drive strong and sustained revenue growth, but what lies at the root of these three pillars of performance? Chris McCormick will share the latest research across 500 companies exploring the impact of clear communication and inclusive training on the ability to prosper. Chris will asses findings reflect on those companies who best demonstrate the most commitment to these critical (yet often neglected) factors, identified as “Global Fluency Leaders”, enjoy remarkable success in exceeding their targets.
The secret of strategy is that there is no strategy for strategy making! Dr Stephan Schubert will use this famous quip by Henry Mintzberg to take a fresh look at an ongoing controversy in the strategy industry: why strategies are never made the way consultants or academics tell us they are (analysis, planning, and rational decision making). He will offer some classic examples and some new findings on how organisational routines, systems, processes, culture and politics are the main driver of strategy making. Understanding what these drivers are is the first step of (re)taking control of the strategy process.
