Topic:                    Organizational Diagnostics: A Case Study 

We now embrace the reality that change is constant in organizations. Whether a change in market strategy, new leadership, organizational restructuring, or process redesign there is no shortage of opportunities for HR business partners to be strategic. But exactly how does HR go about this? One answer is the use of innovative organizational diagnostics.

  • Are you looking for new HR metrics that are leading – versus lagging – indicators of change? 
  • Would you like to provide just-in-time coaching tools and resources to equip your managers to lead during times of change?
  • Is predicting and validating the impact of changes in your organization something that your senior leadership is requesting?

If these questions are important to you and you’re looking for answers, then this session can help. We will take a theory-lite, application-rich case study approach to show how one credit-union organization is using organizational diagnostics to advance its strategic growth plans.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand how organizational diagnostics serve a proactive, strategic function in the role of human resources in leading organizational change.  
  • Identify 10 organizational stressors that can negatively impact the workplace experience including productivity, performance and retention.  
  • Learn how today’s innovative diagnostic tools can accelerate talent development and team alignment to support strategic organizational goals.
