Leaping the Execution Gap Simply? A Flipped Approach to  Engage Stakeholders into 21st Century Strategic Action

It's no longer news that most plans don't get implemented well. Is there a larger view, beyond "Strategic Planning," that you can use to help pull our companies out of this old rut?

Strategic Action uses design and agile change methods to integrate planning and execution—actually, to make it simpler. "Lead, Think, Plan & Act" no longer mean, "Plan the Work then Work the Plan." Through 30 years of implementing this rapid, active strategic discipline, we have now developed a three-tool "Synergy Kit." It aligns strategy and business leaders in shorter bursts of execution, learning and adaptation.

This Breakout session challenges each of us to "think and do together" on an actual case of global strategy change. We will experience each other in action and see a range of approaches in situations like this. And then, with the Strategic Action tools and each others' strategic insights, we'll each plan a leap in one of our own current challenges.
