Beyond Performance: How Great Organizations Build Ultimate Competitive Advantage
With Colin Price, Director of McKinsey’s Global Organisation Practice, London.
The seminar was introduced by Professor Andrew Pettigrew, University of Oxford. Signe Vikkelsø, Assistant Professor, IOA, was the respondent.Only a third of excellent companies remain excellent over the long term. Even fewer organizational change programs succeed. In this talk Colin Price draws on the most exhaustive research effort of its kind, as well as the experiences of an impressive array of senior leaders, to explore why excellence is so hard to achieve and sustain. In particular, Colin will argue that the health of an organization is equally as important as its performance.
