Building Your Organization's Operating Model: The Bridge from Strategy to Execution

Jul 11, 2019 10:05am ‐ Jul 11, 2019 11:05am

Identification: THU02

Building Your Organization's Operating Model: The Bridge From Strategy To Execution Organizations get from "strategy" to "execution" via their operating models"”the aggregate of high-level choices about structure, accountabilities, management, decision behaviors, and underlying performance enablers. These components determine the day-to-day productivity of an organization"”in short, determine whether good strategies are actually executed over time. When an operating model is not quite right for the strategy or circumstances, it can be challenging to deliver impact, and frustrating for those inside the organization who find it difficult to pinpoint why. The Bridgespan Group, using a framework we've developed specifically for social sector organizations (in collaboration with Bain & Company), guides leaders through operating model re-design. In this session, we will provide an overview of this framework, as well as cutting-edge research on operating models in the social sector. Using guided exercises, session participants will brainstorm some of the strategic requirements for their own operating model and assess their current operating model's readiness to execute, while learning about common challenges for which leaders can be on guard. We'll conclude with tips for how leaders can more thoroughly assess and align their operating models, including both quick wins and more significant investments.

  • Build understanding of what an operating model is
  • Complete a high-level review of your own organization's operating model performance
  • Acquaint you with tools you can apply as you consider adjustments to your operating model

Compensation for a Global Workforce

Jul 11, 2019 10:05am ‐ Jul 11, 2019 11:05am

Identification: THU06

The topic of global mobility compensation packages will cover compensation matters as they relate to global mobility programs. More often than not, as tax professionals, we see that employers are not correctly including compensation items related to a foreign assignment in an employee's taxable wages. Compensation items related to a foreign assignment structures include housing, education, home leave, transportation in the host country, etc. Thus, when the employee completes their tax return for the year, wages are often understated, or wages that could have been exempt with a properly-structured assignment have been subjected to tax in the US or the host country. This topic will help payroll managers, global mobility managers, and their staff to correctly consider the costs of assignments and the treatment of employees' wages so that they are then reported correctly on the individual's tax returns and reported for tax purposes. Secondly, by identifying and including these specific compensation items and sourcing them properly as either US or foreign-sourced items, tax benefits to employees who are living and working overseas can be maximized. These benefits include the foreign earned income exclusion and the foreign tax credit.
