Scaling Up Without Screwing Up
Scaling in business can mean effectively growing a team from 6 to 20 or maintaining a culture of excellence throughout a large organization. As a leader in your organization, it is important to uncover the pockets of exemplary performance within your team and help spread them effectively. How do you harness the right amount of standardization to reduce cognitive load while at the same time create a space for collaborative innovation? How do you grow in size, yet keep smart people in the right roles? Robert Sutton, professor of management science and engineering, and co-author of the book, Scaling Up Excellence: Getting to More Without Settling for Less, will discuss these matters and how the same problems of scaling reach across industries in the private, non profit and government sectors.
