Event Details

A well-designed, well-implemented business operating system will give your company:

o A CLEAR, COMPELLING VISION of the future, so that everyone in the company is rowing in the same direction

o A HEALTHY, COHESIVE LEADERSHIP TEAM consisting entirely of the right people in the right seats (without excuses, exceptions or compromises), a team that is free of infighting and politics, and that is laser-focused on the greater good of the business

o TOOLS AND PROCESSES TO GET AND SUSTAIN TRACTION – the ability to get more done in less time with fewer resources

This talk is not about theory. It's about proven, practical ways to get things done, to make the most progress toward achievement of your goals and vision in the least time. Companies that embrace and implement these basic disciplines consistently outperform – by a wide margin – those that don't. Come learn not just WHY but HOW.
