The Strategic Role of a Simple Job Description!

Arizona Commerce Authority 100 N. 7th Ave., Suite 400 Phoenix, AZ 85007 First Floor Conference Center

Learn More

Is your organization poised for future growth and structured adequately to be reflected in the organization's chart? Are your job descriptions detailed and robust enough to outline the tasks, competencies, skills, and interactions necessary to ensure your jobs align with your business strategy? Do you consistently review your job descriptions to ensure that they are current and relevant?

 

Join us for this informative workshop and learn how to address these issues at your company. As organizations position themselves for growth, it is not uncommon to focus on product and process and 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. 

 

Time: 9:00 am - 11:30 am (registration from 8:30 - 9:00)
