Program Description - Managing Across Generations: Boomers to Millennials

One of the more perplexing and often frustrating challenges facing managers today is understanding the expectations of the newest generation to enter the workforce: The Millennials.

 

Each generation of workers brings differing expectations to the workplace and Millennials are no exception. Many managers are left scratching their head asking “What do these people want?” and “Why do they act this way?” Without losing sight of individual differences, there are characteristics common to each generation that managers and employees can come to understand, and leverage for mutual advantage.

Program Description - Managerial Accounting for Non-Financial Executives

 

The fundamental question of managerial accounting was voiced by the legendary former CFO of Cisco Systems, Larry Carter. He said, “From a management and fiduciary role, I do not want to lose control. But we also want to continue to move at a rapid pace. The traditional answer to growth is more controls but the bureaucracy then slows you down. How do you stay at the pace of a start up?”

 

In this two-day program, we will discuss fundamental internal measurement and control systems, including structured measurement models, analytical techniques, and system biases. Our goal will be to establish a firm grounding in proven measurement techniques while also addressing Carter’s concern: knowing what we need to know for decision-making and control without excessively constraining the organization. Whether you are the measurer or the measuree in your organization, this program will deliver ideas that will help you do your job better, by promoting better systems, challenging ineffective or inefficient metrics, and creating a lean measurement culture....
