BE813 Leading Sustainable Change: Daily Management
About This Course
A key component to a continuous improvement culture is the daily rhythm and focus of leaders. A typical approach to improvement is to identify big goals and then take giant leaps toward meeting those goals in the least amount of time. While this sounds good in theory, it often leads to late deliverables, missed critical tasks, and employee burnout. This course explores how to link company strategy to daily improvement, establish leadership rhythms, and measure success.
