E3: Moving from Strategic Planning to Strategic Action: Creating a Nimble and Innovative Organization

Area of Focus: Organizational and Service Delivery Innovations
Room Location: Key 9

Bill Conerly of Forbes correctly stated: “Strategic planning is dead.” The new kings are execution and flexibility. CEOs, senior leaders, and board members are struggling to move organizations from having a good plan to being able to rapidly execute while staying true to core purpose and mission. To be successful in today’s fast-paced world, an organization must be aligned in strategic action. In this workshop, participants will:

  • Receive an introduction to the concepts of a Strategic Action Model
  • Be provided with tools and monitoring strategies which can be implemented to increase clarity and empower innovation within mission-directed parameters
  • Gain opportunities to practice the model using examples from the group

Following the workshop, participants will leave with tools to gather information, identify strategic focus areas, communicate those areas, and engage in an ongoing monitoring and refining process to create an effective Strategic Action Plan within their organization.

Learning Objectives

  • The concept and elements in a Strategic Action Model
  • Tools to gather information, increase clarity, and empower action
  • A process to provide ongoing monitoring and refinement of the Strategic Action Plan
