Creating An Effective Organization

Monday, July 22 | 1:30PM–2:30PM MT | Alpine East Ballroom, second level
Session Type: General Session

What is an effective organization? We hear about them all the time but defining one can be elusive. We often find it much easier to identify ineffective ones. We will talk about what makes organizations work with a look at the five key strengths they exhibit and how leaders nurture those strengths. We will also begin to address ways of making organizational change on the path to becoming effective.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Define what makes an IT organization effective
  • Assess your current organization
  • Understand how to lead an effective organization
