Explaining Performance Issues to Executives with Gary DePaul
Suppose that you are asked to investigate several departments for performance improvement opportunities within an organization. Can you do this in two weeks and then present your findings to the VP of Sales, VP of Operations, and VP of Customer Service? Obviously, you cannot perform an in-depth analysis. What do you do? During this webinar, you will be given two methods that can efficiently and effectively achieve this goal: (1.) Analysis technique for identifying multiple departments’ performance gaps, and (2.) a technique to synthesize your findings using the performance maturity model. You will find that both methods and related tools can help you present a story that executives and management can understand. These methods will also prepare you will for several follow-up projects.
