SAIMAS' 28th Annual Conference

 

The Southern Africa Institute of Management Services invites you to participate in the 29th Annual Conference of the Institute on: 

 

ORGANISATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS: MANAGEMENT SERVICES/OD APPROACH – THE SMART OPTION

24 - 26 OCTOBER 2018

 

Venue:

Forever Hotel @ Badplaas, Mpumalanga

 

 

Organisational Effectiveness is about how effective an organisation is in achieving its goals and objectives. The term is frequently used interchangeably with Organisational Development (OD) and design. Organisational Effectiveness can be achieved through an integrated approach towards key elements such as Strategy, Structure, Capacity & Capability, Leadership, People, Processes, Systems, Culture and Values. These key elements are needed to drive employee engagement in an organisation.

The Management Services / OD approach seeks to integrate organisation efforts to get more engaged employees who will be willing and capable in assisting organisations to achieve their goals and objectives with an integrated approach towards the key elements. It is a known fact that effective organisations have more purpose-driven employees, individuals that feel “I want to” and not “I have to”. The Management Services / OD approach might be the ingredient that organisations need to take them from good to great.

Planned topics will cover subjects such as creating an engaged workforce through coaching, the application of Systems Thinking methodologies, utilising technology to enhance organisational effectiveness, application of MOS (MTM Office System), the development of Standard Operating procedures and case studies of the application of Management Services / OD techniques.

HOW TO CREATE AN ENGAGED WORKFORCE THROUGH COACHING

Brain science has changed the way we see coaching and mentoring. This new field of neuroscience in business, management and leadership explains why these interventions have not achieved dramatic results. Today by using sophisticated neuro lab equipment, this new approach to coaching and mentoring gives us direct insight into brain functioning improving performance coupled to significant behavioural change. The World Economic Forum has actively promoted neuroscience applications to address conflict caused by disruptive economies. Learn how basic knowledge and eight neuroscience factors can change the way you manage for results.
