The Strategic Role of the Simple Job Description!

May 20, 2020

Arizona Commerce Authority 100 N. 7th Ave., First Floor Conference Center7

 

Is your organization poised for growth in the near term?

Is your organization structured correctly, so your growth plans are reflected in your organization chart?

Are your job descriptions detailed and robust enough to outline the tasks, competencies, skills and interactions that are necessary to ensure your jobs align to your business strategy?

Do you consistently review your job descriptions to ensure that they are current and relevant?

 

As organizations position themselves for growth, it is not uncommon to focus on product and process, and then just assume that the people component will take care of itself.  Here’s a reality check.  As organizations move forward, often their people are trapped in survival mode clinging to the ‘status quo’.  Since people are behind products and processes, your organization may be experiencing negative ‘organizational drag’, limiting growth potential, sub-optimizing productivity and capacity, and compromising the ability to take advantage of competitive market opportunities. 

Join us for this informative workshop and learn how to address these issues at your company.

 

8:30AM-11:30AM

Cost:  $49 (Coffee, pastries & fruit provided)

Human Capital and the Continuous Improvement Process

Sep 23, 2020

355 - 362

Arizona Commerce Authority 100 North 7th Ave., First Floor Conference Center

 

Would you build a house without a sturdy foundation? When we speak with growth companies about how they value robust organizational structures, the first response is typically, “We don’t want to introduce anything into our organization that makes us look like big, old-fashioned companies.”

By simply dismissing anything that appears to be ‘big company focused’, are you eliminating fundamental best practices that work for all organizations.

Come to our workshop to find out more about the six organizational structures. Download the flyer below to read more on these structures.

 

8:30 am - 11:30 am

Cost:  $49.00/person
