Component Type: Tutorial
CE: CME 3.25; RN 3.25

This course is designed to help you understand what culture, bureaucracy and innovation really are, and the impact they can have on actual business results — in concrete, clear terms. This requires stripping away the vagueness and assumptions that so commonly surround these topics. The discussion will include three primary components:
  1. Understanding and influencing workplace culture and its impact on employee results. Culture can either disrupt people’s ability to focus on the work, or it can reinforce and support clarity of focus, but culture is created by those working, not dictated by managers.
  2. Avoiding and dealing with workplace bureaucracy, which almost always results from the creation of structure, a necessity as businesses and companies grow. Understanding and managing bureaucracy improves efficiency and economics 
  3. Understanding and encouraging workplace innovation, and the direct benefits to efficiency and profitability that innovation brings about. Managers often attempt to drive innovation formally, but these efforts usually fail due to a lack of understanding what really encourages innovation at the work level — where it matters most.

    Who should attend?

    This course is designed for managers interested in directly impacting these three areas, generating greater business results through the efforts of others. It is designed for new and experienced managers seeking to understand and address these issues with planned deliberation.

    Learning Objectives

    At the conclusion of this tutorial, participants should be able to:
    • Define ways to create focus and direction for people in work groups or project teams
    • Identify an applicable set of tools to understand, diagnose and correct dysfunctional culture, bureaucratic inefficiency, and inadequate innovation
