The Importance of Culture: How it Can Help us Achieve our Goals

Presented by: Liliana Rambo, CAPP - Houston Airport System, City of Houston.

An unrelenting focus on the guest experience continues to pay off handsomely for Houston Airports – and most important, for its millions of passengers each month. In January 2022, William P. Hobby Airport received notice that it had become the first and only five-star rated airport throughout the state of Texas and North America in the Skytrax World Airport Star Rating for 2022. Hobby Airport excelled in all 29 rating categories to achieve the exceptional honor. Achieving this status began with Houston Airport System taking a comprehensive look at their corporate strategy. They then devised a plan, centered around shifting their culture to become more customer-centric. This session will examine the road to obtaining a five-star Skytrax rating at Hobby International Airport.

  • Identify the steps to create a customer-centric service culture strategy for the team and organization.
  • Analyze ways to evaluate performance goals via a balanced score card.
  • Apply how to execute a plan against all odds.

Measure, Manage, Maintain: 3 Ms to Prepare your Team for Continuity

Presented by: Joseph Madison, Kennesaw State University

Today's teams face new challenges to success. With many teams working virtually and team members working flexible hours, we find ourselves hitting new roadblocks to communication and continuity. Some of the basic tenants of working in tandem need to be re-examined to better maintain a consistent result. Topping that list is the process that teams use to communicate the ways we measure, manage, and maintain. We will discuss why measuring and reporting findings needs to be consistent throughout our organizations and learn to determine which areas need to be managed and maintained. This session will discuss the importance of continuity in these three tasks and evaluate tools and our teams can leverage to identify the items or resources that need to be consistently monitored. We will create a short list of ideas and tips to improve our workflow while easing the workload. This engaging and interactive session will allow you to reflect on your team’s growth trajectory. 

  • Analyze areas that need to be measured within an operation and learn to evaluate the tools used to measure within your team. 
  • Create a plan to manage the team's contribution to organizational longevity using the tools and measurements discussed. 
  • Evaluate areas that need to be maintained within organization and understand how to leverage our measurement tools to align with continuity of our management principles.
