Mike will be covering various approaches for facilitating Employee Engagement and zeroing in on organization design approaches to establishing self-directed/managed work teams. This involves shifting the management mindset from the manager to the team, and creating an infrastructure around the team including a Financial/Operating Model and a Risk Management Model for new product introductions, that provide the context for self-management.
