Organization Lifecycles: How organizations grow; why they die and what to do about this.
All living things, including organizations, have a lifecycle. They are born, they grow and over time many will age and die. As they progress along this lifecycle, organizations can expect to encounter certain predictable challenges. How management responds to these will ultimately determine the success or failure of the organization.
At this seminar you will learn:
1. How to discriminate between normal or age appropriate problems that you have to live with versus those that are abnormal and need to be solved.
2. How to predict the future problems that your organization is going to experience
3. Understand what causes organization aging and atrophy; how to prevent it and how to reverse it.
