Today, large and small organizations face complex and critical challenges to increase competitiveness, reduce costs, and improve effectiveness. They invest billions of dollars every year in business improvements that are often not successful. Understanding the factors involved in an improvement process is not enough; success depends on developing and executing strategies for enterprise-level change. Implementation is key. Successful enterprise transformations involve a systemswide approach that integrates viewpoints of multiple stakeholders, methods, and tools.
The Center for Enterprise Transformation Conference will show you how to align people, processes, and technology initiatives within an organization. It will provide the essential knowledge and skills businesses need to change, maintain, and gain a competitive edge through new business strategies that have been proven to endure throughout economic challenges. It brings together leaders from some of the most successful companies and organizations who will discuss their experiences in enterprise transformation. The conference provides a forum for sharing best practices to help organizations succeed in today’s challenging and turbulent environment.
ENTERPRISE TRANSFORMATION: FROM DECISION TO SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION Fast-paced, global economic change, nimble competition, new technology and change in consumer behavior all force organizations to change if they are to survive. Many leaders of organizations decided to transform their business models; some are successful, many more fail. What happens after the directors of a company decide a change is needed? What if you are assigned to lead the effort? Do you know how to start and what direction to take? This track focuses on how to use current theory, industry experience, best practices and systems in order to develop a roadmap to deployment for organizational transformation. The sessions will use actual case studies to identify examples of transformation that have been successful, and examples that failed.
TRANSFORMATION THOUGHT LEADERS Have you been charged with leading your organization’s transformation? Hear the wisdom of those who have been there, before your organization spends millions of dollars on a large-scale transformation program. Hear their latest thoughts and learn from their successes and mistakes. Learn how enterprise level change and implementation can take advantage of the knowledge gleaned from decades of improvement programs. This track presents the thoughts, experience and the best practices from leaders of enterprise transformation.
ENTERPRISE TRANSFORMATION: SOUNDS GREAT, WHERE DO I START? Once the leadership of an organization decides that transformational change is necessary, what do they do next? How are the strategic imperatives required to make the change determined? How is the case for change developed and communicated across the organization? What changes in governance structure need to be put into place? What are the best practices to engage all levels of leadership in transformation? The sessions will focus on how to move from ideas to actions.
GREEN TRANSFORMATION: IS THERE A BUSINESS CASE? How green is your organization? How does it evaluate the impact its facilities, production processes, operating practices, product and/or services have on the environment, local community or world? Is there interest in being a better corporate citizen, enhancing public perception, possibly reducing costs? Could the organization be a possible target of special interest groups, lawsuits or aggressive governmental regulators? This track will focus on how organizations approach transforming themselves and their products and services from the standpoint of sustainability, energy usage/conservation and environmental impact. The sessions will include a combination of thought leadership, strategies and case studies on implementing green concepts and the benefits that can be achieved.
