Masterclasses

Masterclass series: The organisation

17th May, USW Exchange Boardroom, £50 per delegate

Organisational culture; how to identify and work with it.

Organisational culture plays a big part in the success or failure of change. It can be your secret weapon or your Achilles heel. Senior managers talk about culture, but because culture can’t be measured or managed like finance or productivity, they often struggle to understand the culture they work in, and struggle to know how best to work with it

This masterclass will

  • Give you a framework for understanding common types of organisational culture and where they occur
  • Help you identify the culture of your own organisation or department
  • Provide guidance on how to work effectively with different organisational cultures

 

21st June, USW Exchange Boardroom, £50 per delegate

Succession planning – staying one step ahead

With a predicted skills ‘crunch’ on the horizon and the future uncertainties of Brexit, succession planning has re-emerged as an essential activity for both large and small organisations alike. Focusing on the need to grow talent to fill business critical positions in the future, the workshop will focus on differing approaches to succession planning, its relationship with employer branding / employee value propositions and the wider considerations of risk assessment, workforce planning and talent management. Succession planning cannot be seen as an ‘HR issue’, it is a business essential and as such this workshop is aimed at both business leaders and HR professionals interested in ensuring they can confidently meet tomorrow’s skill needs.

 

11th July, tbc, £50 per delegate

Wicked problems – thinking strategically

A wicked problem is a problem that is difficult or impossible to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements that are often difficult to recognise. This masterclass will help us to understand how in today’s world of work we need to look for new ways of solving complex problems through collaboration and “Double Loop” thinking. This workshop will look at the theory of how this might work with some practical applications.
