Cultural Transformation

 

Audience: Executives
Duration: 4 hours
Location: Miami Business School, University of Miami

Overview

Many efforts to change strategies fail because executives do not explicitly work to realign the organizational culture to fit their new strategy. Such cultural realignment is necessary, but lacking leadership and direction, most employees remain focused on previously successful processes and mindsets rather than what will make the firm successful in the future. Employees may not fully understand the new strategy and thus fear change. So, rather than embracing the new culture, employees cling to the old ways. This workshop utilizes experiential exercises and interactive discussion to help executives better understand processes needed for successful transformation, and identify and integrate positive aspects of the old culture to help build a new culture.

Miami Business School has created a four-hour workshop for executives that focuses on a holistic process for cultural transformation. Faculty experts, who have researched these topics and have extensive experience working with firms, introduce executives to the basics of cultural transformation and its processes. Specifically, the following topics are addressed in this workshop:
