CE: CME 3.25; PDU 3.25 PMI 2166-000163; RN 3.25

An additional registration fee is required for all preconference tutorials. Register today for this tutorial.

The role of a leader in organizing and leading a group is often misunderstood and, as a consequence, the group may not perform up to expectations, or it may spend a considerable amount of time dealing with dysfunctional group dynamics instead of the work to be accomplished. This tutorial addresses those issues by exploring the types of work groups, how they can be more effective, and how individuals can correct group dynamics and help the group achieve higher levels of performance.

Who should attend?

This tutorial is designed for individuals who must manage group activities on a permanent or project basis, for those who must work on teams but are not in charge of teams and are interested in learning how to exert influence on group behavior, and for individuals to whom project managers report.

Learning Objectives

• Identify the different types of work group structures and be able to predict the quality of work the group will produce;
• Identify ways to correct dysfunctional group dynamics;
• Create and maintain cooperation among team members, including cross-functional teams.

#32: Influencing Culture, Avoiding Bureaucracy, and Encouraging Innovation
Limited Capacity seats available

Component Type: Tutorial
CE: CME 3.25; IACET 3.25; RN 3.25

An additional registration fee is required for all preconference tutorials. Register today for this tutorial.

This tutorial is designed to help you understand what culture, bureaucracy and innovation really are, and the impact they can have on actual business results — in concrete, clear terms. This requires stripping away the vagueness and assumptions that so commonly surround these topics. The discussion will include three primary components:
1) Understanding and influencing workplace culture and its impact on the results people get while working. Culture can either disrupt people’s ability to focus on the work, or it can reinforce and support clarity of focus, but culture is created by those working, not dictated by managers.
2) Avoiding and dealing with workplace bureaucracy, which almost always results from the creation of structure, a necessity as businesses and companies grow. Understanding and managing bureaucracy improves efficiency and economy.
3) Understanding and encouraging workplace innovation, and the direct benefits to efficiency and profitability that innovation brings about. Managers often attempt to drive innovation formally, but these efforts usually fail due to a lack of understanding what really encourages innovation at the work level — where it matters most.

Who should attend?

This tutorial is designed for designed for managers interested in directly impacting these three areas, generating greater business results through the efforts of others. It is designed for new and experienced managers seeking to understand and address these issues with planned deliberation.

Learning Objectives

• Define ways to create focus and direction for people in work groups or project teams;
• Identify an applicable set of tools to understand, diagnose and correct dysfunctional culture, bureaucratic inefficiency, and inadequate innovation.
