Transitioning from Entrepreneurial to Professional Management

led by Greg Mathers

This course is designed for senior managers and company owners. The course provides tools and methods from the Adizes Methodology for building high-performing agile organizations that can operate independently of the founder/owner. Over 4 days you will experience a repeatable, straight-forward approach to management that prepares a management team to take over from the founder. The methodology naturally unlocks entrepreneurial vitality previously centered in the founder. You will learn how your company, by employing the right processes and structure, can harness its inherent conflict to drive greater achievements while giving people more opportunity.

This is a highly interactive workshop during which you will practice applying the Adizes tools on your company. For this reason, it will be useful if at least 2 people from your company leadership participate
