This lecture focuses on creating and managing high performance teams. The creation of strongly aligned teams, in turn, becomes the basis for creating high performance organisations. What are the ingredients for a high performance team? How can an organisation’s culture support the creation of such teams? How can an organisation become a ‘best place to work’ in which people perform at their very best? What features make a particular culture unique? What changes to organisational culture make a company more effective? The class also deals with the process of successful individual and organisational change.
