Cultural Transformation: Principles for Success
Many companies and organizations are struggling to respond to the challenges brought about by disruption and change. New technology, competition, changing regulations, and shifting business models are but a few of the forces that can result in disappointing results and even failure. Often the challenge begins with a culture that was not developed to reflect these new demands and unable to innovate and capitalize on new opportunity.
Belluzzo will lead the audience through a series of principles that he has found to be effective in tackling this problem. These principles are based on specific experiences developed while working in the technology industry and driving cultural change that can become the basis for a world-class company, built for a modern environment. These case studies will capture his experiences at Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, SGI, Quantum, and other companies where efforts to transform a culture was a critical priority.
Leading a Business Transformation
In the fall of 2009, Rick Belluzzo was asked to speak to leaders of the UK National Health System, as they began to embark on massive change as a result of a significant and permanent decline in the government funding for healthcare. Out of this two-hour seminar, Belluzzo has brought together a collection of "lessons learned" on leading organizations through transformation. These lessons can be applied to businesses and organizations in all industries and organizations - large and small.
The material is presented in a positive manner reinforced by successful outcomes. It captures all critical aspects of leading change from business strategy, execution, innovation, and leading people.
