Strategic Planning & Implementation

Strategic Planning & Implementation


This intensive one-day course handles a range of key components in strategy building – from market dynamics to internal capacities – in the search for balancing the outside dynamics with the inside. During the day we look at different strategy models to reveal their pros and cons – and to understand their dynamics and how they create results compared to the capacity and the skills needed to follow the models. Furthermore, we discuss market dynamics and how they affect your choice of strategy – and how to implement and operate your strategy. As a important part of this we focus on Objectives and Key Results, agile working methodologies, objective and strategy assessment and innovation accounting. Finally, we dive into the organization and focus on implementation constraints clustered around handling of people and resources. During the day we use tasks to solve approaches to make your learning hands on – and to have joint reflections beneficial for choosing your strategy approach.

During the course we touch upon key drivers for strategy implementation and – execution, e.g.:

  • Different strategy models, their dynamics and results. Model fit for your company.
  • Outside the company – Market dynamics:
    • Disruption means risks and opportunities – how to handle it.
    • Exponential organizations with transformative purposes are better at scaling – enabling them to create more efficient platforms, software engines and automated abilities (push driven development)!
    • Furthermore, objectives and key results targeting better user-/customer need fulfilment combined with technologies to “mass customize” means unique fit for all (pull driven development)!
  • Inside the Company – Organizational dynamics:
    • Company culture, organization, managerial dilemmas, governance models, people and resources
    • Smart governance of the company’s project portfolio – waterfalling and/or prototyping?
    • Balancing risks and opportunities in strategy building and execution!
  • The exponential organization – merging the outside world with the inside
