Creating High Velocity Organizations

Dates:

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.

  • John C: Excellent program with great cases and group table projects. Discussion about Toyota and US Navy Nuclear Sub program helped bring theory to application. Softer side of change management was also included and provided refreshing balance to sometimes overdone MIT scientific approach. My favorite so far!

  • John Y: The program allows the participants to think differently as a leader. Leader is not created to share problems but help his / her subordinate to solve the problem - see, solve, share, and lead (simple and practical notion thought by the teacher). It also teaches student how to optimize the operation inside the organization, as the name suggest CREATING HIGH VELOCITY ORGANIZATIONS.

What especially impressed me was the high quality of the professors who both demonstrated a good balance between academic understanding and practical applicability. In addition the diversity of the participants, who flew in from all over the world, contributed to the experience by their separate viewpoints. I actively try to implement the learning's in my work and I hope I will be able to take another course at MIT Exec Ed again.
