GLOBAL BUSINESS READINESS & CULTURE OF LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
November 7 - November 9
KEY MESSAGE OF THE SUMMIT
The competitive advantage for businesses in the 20th Century was centered around the efforts related to process excellence – eliminating waste and making the processes throughout a business as efficient and as effective as possible. And this was accomplished using a variety of disciplines including (but not limited to) Lean, Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints, and so on.
This is not to say that a mastering of these management systems, methodologies, disciplines, and tools are obsolete or otherwise diminished in their importance. They are a necessary foundation on which to build and go beyond.
But, time is the enemy of the 21st Century company.
Therefore, the competitive advantage will go to the companies that can; see further beyond the horizon then their competition, be able to recognize opportunities and threats sooner, have the ability to devise and deploy decisive responses to those opportunities and threats more quickly – and be capable of making adjustments in real-time as circumstances unfold.
Not just see further and detect sooner, but decide and act faster.
This means, they will have to make decisions more quickly and more boldly – often synthesizing a course of action from incomplete data. And to be successful here, companies will have to improve their capabilities and capacities – not just within the business silos – but horizontally integrated across the silos. They will have to work to improve their organizational design so that, as an organization, they are operating efficiently and effectively. Therefore, the competitive advantage will go to the businesses that not only have a command of the fundamental building blocks of process excellence and systems thinking, but also achieve a level of operational excellence – ensuring the entire organization is in a State of Readiness.
The keys to success here will be having an organizational design that is built for speed – nimble, capable, and decisive – and investing in talent. Not just hiring and retaining the best, which will be increasingly more difficult as the competition for talent in the talent pool becomes tighter. But creating a culture of leadership and investing in those who are already working within your organization so that they can be the best they can be and drive the maximum value throughout the value-chain; having high-performance individuals working, in high-performance teams, for a high-performance organization.
Joseph Paris will be delivering a workshop and special keynote as based on his book “State of Readiness”.
