Achieving Organizational Excellence at Investing in Change
Strategy | Culture | Process | Portfolio
This intensive three-day course provides a comprehensive exploration of the strategy, key principles and techniques for success at Enterprise Investment.
Every change your organization makes is an investment, putting at risk things your enterprise values, to achieve one or more things it values more.
Like all investments, Enterprise Investment involves taking calculated risks. Some changes work better than others, and some not at all. Organizational excellence at investing in change means achieving the enterprise’s goals, at least possible risk, from a portfolio of investments that have diverse probabilities of success.
At the heart of every organization’s performance at Enterprise Investment is its investment strategy, investment culture, end-to-end investment process, and efficient portfolio of investments in change.
