Workplace Strategy & Leadership (WSL) M1-W3: Managing Clients and Consumers

People have always been an organisations most important asset, however as we move to an era in which knowledge and ingenuity are core sources of competitive value, we need to put people and their experience at the heart of our workplace management thinking. In this module we discuss the concept of the employee as a consumer and examine what that means in practice. We explore the concept of audience segmentation, the role of the ‘client’ and the tools, techniques and information flows needed to maintain effective relationships.

Workplace Strategy & Leadership (WSL) M2-W3: Designing a Change Program

While there is much theory written on managing change, putting the theory into practice means recognizing the realities of the change and the factors at play in the environment in which the change is going to take place. We’ll talk about the practicalities of designing a change program, getting people onboard and how to maintain the change over time. We’ll also explore what it takes to be a great change leader.

Workplace Strategy & Leadership (WSL) M4-W3: Resource Management

We will merge consideration of Supply Chain Management and Resource Management since they are inextricably connected. In supply chain, we will be considering suppliers for the value they bring, not just the cost of their services. We are also sensitive to the fact that most suppliers know their business better than those seeking the services. We will learn how to provide service providers and suppliers with the ability to make their own recommendations on scope and process and to seek the value of their experience

Hosted by Cristina Herrera 

Join host Andrew Mawson, Founder of global management consultancy, Advanced Workplace Associates (AWA) and co-author of the IFMA-adopted Workplace Management Framework (WMF) to learn more about the true impact of the Pandemic on ways of working, thinking and managing people and teams. 

Andrew will reveal how Covid-19 added a new lens to the traditional workplace ‘experience’ – changing the behaviours and habits of people around the globe, resulting in greater collaboration and integration between core disciplines, as well as the emerging role of ‘Chief Experience Officer’ (CXO). 

The WMF has been adopted by IFMA, as part of AWA’s Workplace Strategy and Leadership Program, to create awareness, enhance skills, support cross-disciplinary leadership required in the new Hybrid normal.
