- The Fourth C- Suite Seminar Synopsis
Theme: Attaining and Sustaining Peak Performance
Debate still rages as to whether organizational and individual objectives can ever be perfectly synchronized for maximum value creation. A working fit between the needs of organizations and those who work in them is necessary for attaining and sustaining peak performance. Progress on organizational objectives is often reported through management accounts, corporate strategic plan reports, annual financial reports and statements while peak performance is evaluated relative to the industry or market that one operates in. Actions of Industry Captains and other leaders in organizations occur in a cultural context hence our choice of India, a nation and a people famed for a strong work ethic.
