Professor Michael Oliff, director of Enterprise Transformation
2020 at the University of Texas School of Management will deliver
the keynote address that will set the stage for the 2008
TechnoBusiness Forum. The Forum will take place May 20-21 in
Atlanta at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center.
Professor Oliff has designed, implemented and led enterprise
transformation and performance improvement programs for a variety
of global companies – Accenture, Bahlsen, Bally, BP, Exxon,
IBM, Nestle, Nokia, Omega, Siemens and Sony – contributing to
$1 billion in client savings. He is the author of more than 100
management articles, cases, books and executive reports.
Professor Oliff’s presentation, titled “Leadership
Challenges in Achieving Market Dominance” will focus on
several important questions:
- Why do failing firms focus on short term revenues, profits or
customer satisfaction instead of on customer value?
- Why do failing firms develop and rely on strategic imperatives,
functional initiatives and short term improvement programs instead
of on distinctive competencies?
- Why do failing firms focus on corporate values, recruiting and
performance instead of on “stretch culture,”
development and potential?
Following his keynote address, Professor Oliff will lead a
table-setting session, “A Management Perspective of
Enterprise Transformation,” which will address key leadership
dimensions involved in transforming the enterprise.
