There are some common themes that run through Greg’s teaching and training. One is the strategic importance of more effective design and management of processes in an organization. Moreover, a better understanding of process concepts will help anyone in any organization be better at their jobs, and as a result, the organization will improve as well. Another theme is the importance of innovation. Innovation has become a hot topic and is a common buzzword in almost every work environment, but innovation that provides a real impact is very difficult to achieve. There are, however, structured approaches that can enable people and their organizations to get better at innovation and to reap the benefits of innovation.
