Creating a Winning Edge through Strategy Execution
Fri. 14 October 2016, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm AWST
A Winning Edge Through Strategy Execution - a half day seminar
The ability to execute strategy is a competitive differentiator.
Yet strategy execution remains an elusive dream for too many organisations. Executives polled in recent workshops rated their ‘strategy execution capability’ as poor. Research has consistently shown a vast gap between intent and execution.
Why? And more importantly, what can we do about it?
We know everything we need to know to execute successfully: it is not lack of knowledge.
Our goals are to:
share that knowledge with leaders responsible for translating strategy into outcomes;
provide tools to support them in that process; and
provide some initial coaching to enable them to translate these insights into outcomes.
At the end of the day participants will:
Be able to describe their business strategy in a simple, clear manner that the workforce can internalise and translate into daily decisions and practices
Understand the multiple barriers to strategy execution – individual; team; organisational
Apply our Execution Architecture© framework to develop their individual Strategy Execution Playbook
Understand how to better use leadership conversations as a vital tool in the strategy execution process
Be able to design managerial practises which support the development of an execution culture in their organisation
From the Workshop to the Workplace … our guarantee
Our promise extends beyond simply delivering on the program outcomes. We promise participants will be able to translate these workshop outcomes into actionable changes in the workplace.
To ensure this outcome we have incorporated two key features into the workshop design.
Every participant will build their own ‘Strategy Execution Playbook’ during the seminar. This will be tailored to each individual’s own organisational context.
Each participant will receive a free one-to-one post workshop coaching session (60 minutes) either face-to-face or via Skype.
