A Systems View of Enabling Enterprise Change — Mark Moran, SDM '09 Manager of Portfolio Management and Marketing Operations, Enterprise Advanced Marketing Group, John Deere

About the Presentation

Enterprise change is hard, especially for mature, successful companies. Many of the keys to accomplishing enterprise change come from seeing the enterprise itself as a complex system. This presentation will discuss many of the ingredients necessary for an enterprise to change itself and acquire new capabilities. It will be based on Moran's experience with enterprise change efforts at John Deere.
