Motivated teams who have clear, agreed-upon goals will naturally engage in team learning and process improvement—even if they have never heard of process management.

Overview: Building a learning organization is fundamental to creating a culture in which change is readily accepted as a constant. Accomplishing this requires hard work and preparation, part of which entails developing specific personal and organizational capabilities necessary in adopting and applying models of organizational change management to your organization.

It is hard work, but it is made easier with a clearly defined and shared goal. Learn how the clear vision of attending a Jimmy Buffett concert motivated a group to create their own learning organization; and how these lessons can apply to your IT Transformation initiative.

In the latest webinar in CastlePointe’s “Free Lunch” IT Transformation Webinar Series you will learn how motivated teams who have clear, agreed-upon goals will naturally engage in team learning and process improvement—even if they have never heard of process management.

Topics include:

  •      An example of a (small) learning organization in action
  •      Reasons we don’t always have team learning in our work organizations
  •      Necessary organizational capabilities to develop a learning organization
  •      The importance of clear goals to motivate and monitor team development
