Why attend Creating High Velocity Organizations?:

What makes some organizations capable of generating and sustaining high-velocity, unparalleled, relentless improvement and innovation? This program will introduce the fundamental principles by which such acceleration occurs, give examples of those principles in practice, and give participants an opportunity to test how those principles can be applied and translated to their own work.

Some organizations achieve such exceptional levels of performance—time to market, quality, safety, affordability, reliability, dependability and adaptability—that it puts their rivals to shame. Though few in overall number, they exist in manufacturing, high tech, heavy industry, product design and production, and services, such as health care delivery. The select few are capable of generating and sustaining such high-velocity, broad-based, relentless improvement and innovation, that they achieve unparalleled levels of excellence. Learn what drives the success of these companies.

 

The MIT edge:
Traditional business-school curricula tend to focus on teaching decision-making skills as a way to success. However, many companies today—especially those in relatively new industries—find themselves lacking the information or the experience needed to make the decisions that could determine their future. That is where the leaders' ability not only to think, but also to behave like innovators, becomes vital to the success of the organization. Known for its commitment to innovation, with this program MIT Sloan offers a rare opportunity for participants to learn how to channel their curiosity into innovators' behavior.

 

Course experience:
Creating High Velocity Organizations employs several teaching techniques:

  • presentations
  • case discussions
  • video dramatizations
  • in-class simulation emphasizing a participatory style to maximize the opportunities for "learning by doing"

The course material is organized into thematic modules designed around the four key principles of building the discovery capability in an organization—smart work design, creative problem solving, continuous knowledge sharing, and developing of discovery skills among employees. Each module consists of several sessions, which demonstrate, first, the positive impact through successful application of those key principles, and then provides examples of negative results when those principles were clearly needed but not applied.

Each session is punctuated by facilitated small-group exercises, in which participants can actively apply the ideas and examples offered in class to their own specific, real-life situations.

This course will enable participants to:

  • Create an organization where work is done by harnessing the best-known approaches available and signaling the need for new knowledge
  • Solve problems as they arise and to develop new understanding that prevents the problems from recurring
  • Multiply the impact of local discoveries by making them useful systemically throughout the organization
  • Lead an organization where discovery is encouraged, supported, and promoted at all times.

 

 

The depth of concepts that goes with this course is highly stimulating and interesting… exercises allow a participant to reflect on their past and present mental models and how high velocity learning can impact the combined efforts of both the executives and the team members.

Sample Schedule—Subject to Change

This program is designed for:

  • managers with responsibility for core products, services, or mission-critical processes
  • subject matter experts on process excellence
  • senior leadership, whose understanding and support are vital in developing the discovery capacity within the organization
  • entrepreneurs in any industry, but especially in new and emerging fields, where there is little or no established knowledge base required for successful decision-driven leadership

To get the highest impact of this program, we recommend that participants attend in groups comprising managers and executives from the organization. Please inquire about group discounts for teams of three or more.

 

 

Excellent course! Core principles are conveyed in a manner that helps participants easily see how they can be readily applied to their own organizations and situations. Instructors were highly knowledgeable and engaging. Highly recommend this course!
