Jerry Porras Keynote Speaker
An esteemed academic who is widely published in both academic and management journals, Dr. Jerry I. Porras helps you focus on organizational vision and change. Working with Jim Collins, he recently completed an exhaustive research project to discover the approaches and behaviors of the most visionary companies of the past century. In the process, they concluded what led those organizations to greatness.
Co-author of Built To Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies, he helps you build an organization that can stand the test of time, management changes, economics and other influences. He shows you how to:Adopt a proven approach to lasting greatness, study a company's commitment to its corporate identity, understand the differences between truly visionary organizations and those that are less successful, and separate a guiding philosophy from your challenging, shorter-term goal or mission.
