In an era of non-stop business and organization change, designing and renewing organizations has emerged as a critical skill set for leaders in many industries. The Conference Board’s 2005 Organization Design and Renewal Conference will be held September 29-30 at the Westin New York at Times Square.
More and more companies believe that designing, refining, and renewing organizations represents a critical skill that executives must possess to win in the competitive marketplace.
