Insights and Highlights from Close System Workshop
March 24, 2018 – our company had a core team workshop held at the City Seasons Al Hamra Hotel. In the 5 hour session, the aim was to develop and sustain high-performance team leaders, have a clear role responsibility and expectation and define our company’s corporate strategy including its core competencies.
Exploring our team’s interplay of character strengths can help to create synergy, as well as a positive work environment, which can lead to higher performing teams and greater employee engagement. From the recent workshop, highlights were when everybody has collaborated in interdepartmental marketing initiatives, responsibilities alignment, peer review, and company strategic planning.
Close System leaders know that strategy is important and, especially, that operations strategy is critical to an organization’s success. Operations strategy allows our company to a better position in the marketplace by focusing on competitive priorities. These “priorities” include and not limited to cost, quality, delivery, and flexibility.
