Led by USC Marshall CEO experts in building enterprise effectiveness, the network brings together senior HR Business partners, heads of COE’s, and their teams to tackle key issues that matter for the participating companies at a deeper level than is taking place today. Our mission is to improve the practice of management by building business and HR leaders’ capability in organizational diagnosis, work design, and strategy execution.

The Enterprise Effectiveness Network (EEN)
Three Objectives

We see many HR business partners and COE heads take a too-narrow, inward-focused approach that does not sufficiently address underlying business issues. Organizational challenges typically are divided up and addressed separately by HR business partners, OD and analytics groups, and the bigger picture issues are either ignored or improperly diagnosed.


Identify solutions
to your talent, organizational effectiveness, and strategy execution challenges that are more systemic, and have a deeper impact than your organization can find on its own.


Help your organization improve its capability to conduct more systematic diagnosis of organizational challenges and derive actionable solutions.


Offer guidance and insight from CEO leadership that guides you to a deeper understanding in order to apply to your organization.

Focus Areas

EEN provides a community of like-minded people to help you think through and solve challenges that you might otherwise struggle to address on your own. The topics covered are drawn from two different sources:

  • Input from the members based on their current big talent, organizational, and strategy execution challenges.
  • Thought leadership based on the EEN co-leaders collective experience working on systems issues in companies around the world.


“The Enterprise Effectiveness Network (EEN) is a valuable offering of PepsiCo’s partnership with the Center for Effective Organizations. EEN meetings strike a good balance between sharing the latest research on organization/workforce topics by academics and researchers and practical application from peer organization HR/OD practitioners. The subject areas are timely, and span topics such as future-proofing our workforce, designing the employee experience, and extracting value from data sources to focus on the most important people analytics.

The return to PepsiCo is extraordinary. Not only do we benefit from the latest organizational effectiveness research, we’re also able to look outside our organization at peer practices and trends, while supporting the development of our best HR talent.”

“EEN meetings bring credible research and practice of the most relevant topics to HR and OD leaders today. The research shared provides a good science-based background and useful insights about the subject while the network with HR/OD leaders from other companies creates a great atmosphere to learn from each other about how to practically apply some of the theory. It’s critical to get an external perspective on the most important topics in the HR field, and EEN has provided a great platform to do just that.”

“The Enterprise Effectiveness Network (EEN) provides a great opportunity for HR Leaders from various industries, to collaborate and learn from the latest research on a broad spectrum of trends affecting various aspects of human capital, organizational development and the future of work. Topics discussed range from data driven storytelling, to the impacts of technology on work, worker and workplace, to future-proofing your workforce.

For UPS, the EEN has created a valuable community in which we not only benefit from the latest research, but also learn and share best practices from other organizations struggling with many of the same issues.”
