Your business success is not merely having a goal, a direction, a vision. It is the ability to change, to create the process, the organization, the capabilities and culture, that result in performance. This course is a roadmap that will enable you to successfully execute strategy.
Business Strategy Execution is a hot topic in management today. The Conference Board's recent Survey of CEOs revealed that chief executives are so concerned about strategy execution that they rated it as both their number one and number two most challenging issue.
Why does strategy execution so often fail? Because most strategic plans are little more than a series of vertically integrated objectives. But, the problem is not objectives and it is not vertical. It is the "whole-system" and its ability to adapt and align, internally and externally in fast cycles. In other words, to be agile.
The problem is the culture and capabilities of the organization and a process to design and deploy those capabilities. This course provides that process and is based on forty years of experience improving the performance of organizations. The problem is developing new capabilities and a new culture that will enable the organization to achieve its goals. The term "Agile" implies an iterative process of experimentation, learning, adaptation to the changing environment, and alignment with other business units and support groups. This course is about creating that agility, adaptation and alignment.
