Strategy & Alignment (St Louis)

November 5, 2019

St Louis Knight Center

Seminar Details
Successful organizations employ strategy to achieve their goals, but it’s almost impossible to meet 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 the choices, policies, and procedures of operations, technology, human resources, and even geography have to align to achieve the strategic goals of the overall organization.
