2. Business Improvement By Smartly Breaking the Rules

Duration: 60 to 90 minutes


Managers and Executives who have the responsibility to drive leadership improvements within their organizations and are seeking cutting edge methods for widespread employee engagement in improvement initiatives.


Sustainable performance improvement frequently requires fundamental changes to the way the business is run and the way teams are led.
