Speaker and Program Information: 

Is Your Organization Tactical or Strategic?

Developing Strategic Thinking Capabilities

Session Description:

According to research in Harvard Business Review, only 23 percent of executives are strong at strategic thinking. With bad strategy being the cause of more than 80 percent of business failures, having a highly strategic organization can be the difference between continued success and bankruptcy. Just ask Circuit City, Borders, or Blockbuster Video.

Learning Takeaways:

Senior leaders attending this program will learn how to:

1. Apply the Three Disciplines of Strategic Thinking framework to develop       

     strategic mindsets and behavior at all levels of the organization.

2. Facilitate strategy conversations across functional areas and levels to eliminate silos and foster greater collaboration and sharing of best practices.

3.  Build a common understanding and language for strategy so managers at all levels are able to generate strategic insights that lead to new value.
