Share Inertia & Entropy, a Deadly Poison for the Organization and its Remedy: Organizational Agility

Event Details


Description

In the implementation of Organizational Strategy, and its execution throughout Portfolio Management, companies encounter two major pitfalls: Organizational Inertia and Organizational Entropy.

Organizational Inertia is the factor reducing the readiness and reactivity of an organization to confront its dynamic business environment. Organizational Entropy is the aspect reducing the level of control and blurring the strategic horizon. The combination of these two factors lead to ineffectiveness, wastes and inefficiencies. Let's explore how the Portfolio governance must be structured to support the organization in countering these dreadful effects and gain Organizational Agility and Change readiness.

 

Learning Objectives

By participating (not only attending) to this session, Participants will be allowed to:

1/ Understand how the entropy and inertia factors in their organization affect their ability to execute their organization's strategy, or even formulate it. They will be also able to identify these factors and their root causes.

2/ Define how a properly defined Portfolio Management governance supported by their PMO can contribute in reducing organizational inertia and entropy, and thus contribute directly to enhance immediate results in terms of, but not limited to: Time to market, productivity, profitability, reduction of the opportunity cost, increase in employee retention rate, etc.

3/ Being capable of defining a proper 90 days’ action plan to reframe their Portfolio Management governance and their PMO's strategy and direct contribution to this organizational enhancement, having also as a consequence to establish a sustainable business model and business case for their PMO and the overall organizational effectiveness endeavor.
