About this event
Even at the best of times, business leaders have an extensive list of management responsibilities to juggle. To achieve growth, so many factors require their attention: increasing productivity, building resilience, improving businesses processes, managing change, succession planning, enhancing communications, getting reward systems and culture right – the list is endless! Throw into the mix one of the most challenging economic situations in recent history and the job can feel pretty tough.
In this webinar, we’ll be looking at how innovation in management can help you succeed in all of these areas – even in the midst of a challenging economic climate. Professor Simon Mosey and Dr Lynn Oxborrow will share practical tips that managers can use today to continually add value to their companies.
