The Fourth International Conference on Knowledge, Culture and Change in Organisations

Unlockng Corporate Performance

Susan Lucia Annunzio.

Global competition, political realities and economic conditions are affecting business success, challenging companies to continually harness brainpower and accelerate organizational performance. In the past, companies have right-sized, cut costs, improved efficiency, acquired or shed businesses and flattened the organization. But in today's world, these measures are not enough to achieve profitable growth.
Susan Lucia Annunzio will discuss the groundbreaking research and detail how companies can use this information to increase performance. The speech will reveal how to identify the differentiating characteristics of high-performing workgroups, increase the performance of exemplary groups within the organization, remove barriers that hinder performance, and replicate high performance practices and behaviors throughout the organization.
By redeploying existing human and financial resources, companies can remove barriers and fully realize growth opportunities.
