September: Introduction to the SEEM Model: Leadership at All Levels
Every organization—whether it is 5, or 50,000 people—faces three broad sets of concerns.
-Who are we? Why are we? How do we make money?
-What processes and projects enable us to deliver on our mission? How do we support the teams that make products and provide services?
