Layering human intuition onto the
architecture of science and technology

Beyond Reengineering:

Becoming a Personal Resource

Summary: This workshop is designed for those who aren't able to participate in the full Challenge seminar yet still need The Power of Being a Personal Resource. The recipe for successful change requires

the best ingredients (your staff, our tools)
proper conditions (which we create together)
and a workable sequence (with flexibility built in).

Without the effective follow-up designed into Systhink seminars, the best-sounding recipe for change can turn into another “flavor of the month.” Through the ‘twin-focus’ of Mosaic Management, you learn how internal consultants overcome obstacles through planning, coaching and persuading, to help people put new principles into practice.

Who Should Attend: Directors of Training, R&D, Quality, Safety and their attendant staffs; in short, anyone with the responsibility to plan and implement cultural change through innovation, continuous improvement, safety, security or quality programs will benefit from this event.

The role is the challenge of a lifetime. Being a Personal Resource means “Being Available: Tag You’re It!” for "real-world" situations, relying mainly on your knowledge, perception, and ability to influence. To prosper as a personal resource, you must have the Five C’s, a clear plan, solid tools, and a proven set of techniques.
