Seminar Details

Lamar Pierce, Associate Professor of Organization & StrategySuccessful organizations employ strategy to achieve their goals, but it’s almost impossible to achieve those goals when departments or individuals are focused on their own agendas.

This program examines one of the most challenging aspects of strategy—how to successfully align people and resources to support the goals, directives, and strategic position of the organization. We will focus on how choices, policies and procedures of operations, technology, human resources, and even geography must align in order to achieve the strategic goals of the overall organization.

  • Complementarities and conflicts in firm resources and activities
  • Incentives and managerial control
