Operational Excellence


http://www.csom.umn.edu/executive-education/operational-competitive-advantage.html
Achieving measurable breakthroughs in operational performance is accomplished by delivering superior products and processes in the eyes of your external and internal customers at the lowest possible cost. In this three-day program, you will develop in-depth, hands-on knowledge of improvement methodologies, know when and how to use each method, and how to combine them into a systematic approach to take your operation to the next level, and the level after that. The instructor will use examples from numerous major industries in the manufacturing, service, software, and other sectors.

You will learn to employ innovative techniques in operations planning: Lean, Six Sigma, Kaizen Blitzes, activity based costing, benchmarking, supply chain cost reduction, self-managed teaming, change leadership, and other powerful approaches to become a high performance organization. Using the right combination of approaches will enable your organization to dramatically increase customer satisfaction and profits—while simultaneously reducing waste, cycle time, inventories, and costs. Bring with you to class data on a major "broken process" within your company (with which you are familiar) and work on it right there. Many participants will leave with a breakthrough solution.

Power and Influence: Strategically Managing Business Relationships


http://www.csom.umn.edu/executive-education/power-and-influence.html
Successful leaders and communicators must not only make the right decisions—they must also influence others to support and execute those decisions. Discover the tools to immediately build a power base, leverage your existing skills, and strategically move others in the right direction.

The ability to influence others and communicate persuasively is critical to a leader's effectiveness. Implementing strategy, initiating change, and executing decisions all require the ability to influence, inspire, and shape others' behavior.

You will learn the practical tools to become more powerful and influential in your dealings with coworkers, managers, and partners. Through a mix of lecture, discussion, and experiential exercises, you will master the tools to be able to mobilize entire teams, departments, and organizations.

FrameBreaking™ Leadership Development


http://www.csom.umn.edu/executive-education/frame-breaking.html
Experience is the best teacher, but you need the right tools for leveraging that experience. The FrameBreaking Experience Model provides a powerful new perspective and rich toolkit to help participants build their capabilities through on-the-job experience.

The most successful leaders are distinguished by a combination of four characteristics:



  1. They have exceptional natural talent

  2. They have great experiences (opportunities)

  3. They learn useful lessons from their experiences

  4. They apply the lessons they learn to tackle ever larger challenges

While you can't change your natural talents, you can make a difference in the three other characteristics. Yet, since we aren't taught how to learn from our experiences, it is easy to pass up great development opportunities, or to miss out on key lessons that could accelerate career progress. This program will help participants to better identify great on-the-job learning opportunities, enhance their learning from them, and develop a simple routine for applying what is learned to get better results for the organization while achieving personal career objectives.

Strategic Planning and Business Decision Making


http://www.kenan-flagler.unc.edu/executive-development/open-enrollment/programs/strategic-planning
This program has been designed to equip executives with the advanced strategic planning and business decision making skills they need to excel as multifaceted leaders in today’s dynamic business world. The first part of the program takes managers and business owners through a strategic planning process that was developed by the program leaders and is used successfully today in over 100 firms. Participants start by examining each of the steps in the strategic planning process, observing how and why other companies have either succeeded or failed in the planning process, and they leave with a strategic planning template that has stood the test of time for mid-sized companies.
The second part of the program focuses on how managers can incorporate strategic business decision making in their day-to-day operations. The topics in the business decision making portion of the program were chosen because decision making under uncertainty is the norm rather than an exception in the 21st century. Managers increasingly have to make important business decisions when information is incomplete and the future is murky. This is further complicated by the fact that technology and globalization are ensuring that no source of competitive advantage remains sustainable. The only way firms can continue to grow and prosper is through continuous innovation; however, companies must also constantly revisit their roots and original corporate vision to ensure that the domain of activities in which they participate remains relevant.
Dates: TBD

Fees: $3,700

Location: The Rizzo Conference Center; Chapel Hill, North Carolina
