Managing with Limited Resources
With the increased demands for service in all aspects of our lives, the development of all resources is being examined more diligently and rigorously in an effort to produce more. Better, faster, cheaper and safer, is a difficult combination to achieve - particularly when faced with limited resources.
The world economy is unstable. Competitiveness is now beyond local shores. Technological changes are happening virtually overnight. We are witnessing a sharp increase in an aging population. A significant percentage of the world's population is under the age of 25 and reflects an ever increasing diversity within our global community. All these factors influence business decisions in a world filled with environmental and political uncertainties.
The challenge for business becomes: how to maximize the efficiency of business needs while respecting the identity of individuals? How to exploit and yet preserve the environment and ensure a better or equal standard of living for future generations?
Ashton will discuss several possible solutions for business leaders including:
- establishing an organization with definitive goals/mission and vision
- lead/manage people by identifying their strengths/diversity/qualification
- manage resources including project, budget, information, change and organizational management together with performance assessment
- communicate effectively using listening, feedback, presentation and written communication
