Organizations today face increasing pressure from multiple stakeholders and relentless global competition, forcing them to become more innovative in everything they do and produce. If the competition is improving faster than you are it is only a matter of time until you are irrelevant and out of business! The Forces for Change and Stakeholders Workshop addresses the “Why of Change.” In this first Workshop, you will identify the forces that are pressuring you to change your organization and your leadership. Then you will identify the key stakeholders, what they want, and how well the organization is meeting their needs. This workshop includes the first two Digital Learning & Applications Labs needed for all the other Workshops. The Do It Yourself (DIY) Labs for this workshop are FREE when you join the Studio as a Free Member.

The focus on stakeholder needs and relationships helps provide a common alignment point for the strategy, systems, scorecard, and overall organization design for sustainable excellence.
