Benjamin P Taylor - 5 core practices for effective organisations
Five core practices for organisational effectiveness
Benjamin will introduce his ‘five core practices’ for effective organisation, some of the theory behind them, and ways to begin the practice.
Would your team or organisation be more effective if you reliably worked to be able to do these things?
– Productively have honest conversations, ‘discuss the undiscussable’, and surface reasoning and emotions?
– Actively achieve clarity of relationships, task, roles and broader activities and programmes?
– Learn at single, double, and triple loop level
– Shape a culture which enabled and supported willing productivity
– Measure and remain focused on actual customer value – as the customers see it?
