Join us for a one-day executive workshop, hosted by the Executive Education team at Heriot-Watt University

We welcome all executives and managers responsible for managing the performance of their organisation to attend.


The workshop offers a fantastic opportunity to look at the results of 25 years of research into areas such as performance measurement; strategic management; organisational culture and behaviour; organisational evolution and adaptation; and people engagement and motivation.
As well as the experiences of a range of companies and organisations (food & drink, technology; engineering manufacturing; service and public sector organisations).  

You will also look at:
