10:10am: How to get Fired at the C-Level: Why Mismanaging Change is the Biggest risk of all
Leading executives, it seems, sometimes do too little about strategy implementation, do not apply the appropriate level of attention to such critical organisational change, and often relegate sponsorship and leadership to lower management; whilst they get on with their ‘day jobs’.
This is further stressed but the fact that many organisations are facing rapidly changing and disruptive times, with an urgent need for each strategic decision to be based on fact and not hope.
This presentation will explore this challenge, and consider the ways that a strategic PMO can influence this project success, be the custodians of strategic change, and perhaps keep those C-Level executives gainfully employed.
All the above is based on Peter Taylor’s new and excitingly challenging book – How to Get Fired at the C-Level.
