Tuesday, October 4th, 2016 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
University Center at the College of the Canyons, Santa Clarita
Speaker: Jerry Wang
Topic: Performance Management for Projects and Programs
The Art Of Execution (AOE) Framework is an invitation to engage in a free course of rigorous study about the Behemoth we call work. A person can work for 40 to 60 years so isn't it wise to get a holistic education up front rather than stubbing your toes and then try to learn from the lessons? Where is the cumulative knowledge and wisdom of the workplace from one generation of workers to benefit the next generation of workers?
AOE is an awesome tool for a high school student as well as a seasoned CEO. It's a way to diagnose problems, to understand a situation and how you might be able to influence it. Jerry will discuss the AOE framework and its four pillars; Leader's Edge, Process Ninja Skills, Duality Skills, and Cohesive Skills. This will provide you the knowledge, insights, and tools to diagnose problems and understand a situation (what you can and cannot control/influence). For example, Leader's Edge tells you WHAT to align organizationally. Knowing what to do, you need to be able to do it efficiently and correctly by ensuring that each step adds significant values and is error-free.
