Are your company “systems” working for or against you?
Every company has “systems”. At 1-degree we believe that these systems are neither good nor bad. Systems are needed. Problems arise when they are inconsistent and/or have conflicting underlying principles. And even if a company has a great strategy, incredible leadership and a great culture these systems can hamper or sabotage ultimate success.
Management systems include all of the working methodologies that support the normal operation of the organization. They could include:
Total Quality Management (TQM)
High Potential Employee Identification
Performance Management Systems
Annual Strategy Planning exercises
Employee Empowerment programs
