Motorola was a brilliant 84-year old company with a legendary past of innovation and excellence.  The problem was, that was the ‘past’, and the present was looking much tougher. This session is about the story of that transformation, with special focus on measuring what matters. 

That story is close to my heart, because I helped to lead it.  Join me for a hands-on, practical dive into this historic change, the good, the bad, and the simple but powerful tools that resulted. 

We’ll talk about Agile, Lean, and the measurement practices that enabled the change, and produced important results… quickly.    

This program will help you improve your ability to:

  • Approach large scale change strategically
  • Develop tools and measures that drive the kinds of results the business cares about
  • Challenge your own status quo to drive positive change

Our program includes a presentation and discussion of the Motorola case study, a new performance management model that was central to the change, and a look at organizations as systems.  This is a WORKshop, rather than a lecture, and will be highly interactive, so please come ready to share and learn. 

Yeah, that’s a lot for 90 minutes, so bring your A-game and come prepared to participate!
