The Strategic Role of the Simple Job Description!

April 17, 2019

Arizona Commerce Authority 100 N. 7th Ave., Suite 400 Phoenix, AZ 85007

 

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.

 

9:00AM-11:00AM

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