    Ron AshkenasResearch from Bain, McKinsey, IBM and others all suggest that reducing complexity helps organizations perform better than their peers in terms of growth, innovation, and profitability. Making this happen, however, is not just a matter of chance – but instead requires leaders who know how to make simplification an ongoing strategy for business improvement and change.

    The purpose of this webinar is to explore what it means to drive simplification in an organization – and how you can help managers cultivate this skill and gradually turn it into a core capability. The webinar also will give you an opportunity to assess your own tendencies to create complexity, and what you can do about it.

    The webinar will be led by Ron Ashkenas who was part of the consulting team that worked with Jack Welch to reduce complexity at GE, and then at dozens of other organizations around the world. He is the author of Simply Effective: How to Reduce Complexity in Your Organization and Get Things Done (Harvard Business Press), as well as numerous other publications.

    The specific learning objectives for this webinar will be:

    • To define complexity and understand how it impacts business performance and quality of work life;
    • To understand the four primary sources of unnecessary complexity in every organization; and
    • To give you a starting point for developing a personal plan to reduce complexity in your organization, or in collaboration with your clients.
