Matt Lerner: How to Focus Teams on the Most Impactful Work

You may have noticed, diligence and hard work do not always lead to success, and doing more, faster is often a bad idea. What is it that causes an organisation to miss the important obvious opportunities while, technically, working hard and doing their jobs really well?

Matt will explain how ‘sensible’ incentive structures and widely accepted organisational practices often lead to bad outcomes, and he’ll suggest a better approach. He’ll challenge you to rethink the way strategy is developed and communicated; the incentive structures you put in place; and the outcomes your culture celebrates, so your team can achieve the success you seek, even in today’s resource-constrained environment.
