PERSPECTIVE: SHAPING THE FUTURE OF ORGANISATIONS – TAKING THE LEAD FROM START-UPS

Innovation is a buzz word in today’s business. Investors and corporate leaders are all eyeing start-ups to search for the next high-potential projects or even unicorn. While there is always a natural link between innovation and start-ups, how can large corporates reflect on their internal organisational structure and manpower strategies to mirror the success of start-ups and keep moving their companies towards disruptive future?

VISIONARY KEYNOTE: ROADMAP TO A HIGH PERFORMANCE WORKFORCE

The strategic purpose of HR is to “create a sustained competitive advantage through workforce performance.” This advantage is created when “people in your key positions outperform their peers at competitor organizations.” For example, your sales people outperform competitors’ sales people … in the eyes of the customer. Your services people, your product development people, and your solution architects outperform their peers at competitor organizations. We will show you a recent solution, with deliverables, for improving the performance of a Country HR Director. This presentation will be very practical – in the end, you will know precisely “what to do.”

  • What is the full solution for improving the performance of any key position?
  • How will you ensure that business managers are accountable for continued performance improvements?
  • How can you prove your value by measuring year-over-year key position performance improvements?
