Keynote Presentation: Patterns of Strategy

This talk is about Patterns of Strategy, a revolutionary approach which is effective and simple to use, yet extremely powerful. It leverages the increasingly complex competitive and collaborative relationships between organizations: competitors, partners, regulators and the marketplace. It provides a framework and new vocabulary to understand the underlying forces driving strategic relationships and emergent strategy. You’ll understand how emergent strategy emerges, and how to model, understand and harness its forces to your advantage to achieve the strategic fit you want. It can also model the dynamics of a business ecosystem – how different organizations are likely to move relative to one another – which provides an added way to predict and influence the likely future state of your strategic environment. The patterns provide a toolkit for designing strategies, with a catalogue of about 100 proven strategies, and there are also patterns at an ecosystem level. I’ll illustrate with examples and cases throughout the talk.
