TRANSITION PLANNING FOR NEW AND EXITING LEADERS
A Town Hall with Internationally Acclaimed Consultant Hugh Hochberg
As more and more Baby Boomers retire in the Oregon architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C), transition is becoming an industry norm. With this in mind, SMPS Oregon brings The Coxe Group partner Hugh Hochberg to Oregon for a ‘town hall’ style, interactive presentation on the do’s and don’ts of transition/succession planning.
This event is sponsored by:
Transition planning, also known as succession planning, is all the rage in Oregon’s architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C) industry.
Firms such as FFA, Lease Crutcher Lewis, and Kennedy-Jenks Consultants have recently negotiated this great abyss with success but there are countless other firms in line behind them.
With this in mind, SMPS Oregon brings The Coxe Group partner Hugh Hochberg to Oregon for a ‘town hall’ style, interactive presentation.
Hochberg, an AIA Handbook of Professional Practice author, and a co-author of McGraw-Hill’s Success Strategies for Design Professionals will tap his 36 years of consulting to an estimated 800 A/E/C clients to provide Oregon Principals, Associates and Marketers with the ingredients of successful transition -- in Hugh’s words “how to make it happen.”
The Coxe Group partner will draw on concepts, case studies, and consulting experiences to provide the audience with real-life examples across a wide spectrum of situations and cultural dynamics.
The aim of the presentation will be to arm today’s and tomorrow’s leaders with the information they need to appropriately position their organizations -- and their careers - for the highest likelihood of success during transition.
Hugh’s “interactive” talk (participation required!) will address the components of transition, including:
Hugh will make it a priority to pay very close attention to ownership – which he says often gets the most attention -- and leadership which, he describes as usually the most challenging and most critical to sustaining success.
Hugh adds that without a successful transition, firms languish and then disappear. He says to expect to walk away from this presentation with clarity about “what’s going well” in your firm in the context of transition and “what needs attention.”
Beer, wine & hors d'oeuvres will be available at this event.
