Patterns of Strategy to Harness the Power of Disruption

Disruption can go one of two ways: either you’re having to handle disruption, or you are being a successful disruptor and shaping others. Either way, you need an approach to strategy development which can do both, and which is fast enough to handle shortened timescales which can exist in times of disruption. This Masterclass introduces Patterns of Strategy – a radically innovative approach to strategy formulation and execution that models how emergent strategy is shaped by strategic relationships with others. You’ll get the theory behind the approach, and opportunities to apply it your situation, and it overtly considers the scale of strategic disruption going on.

It’s pragmatic and that significantly shortens the time needed to develop strategy. It can be applied at any scale and used for both competitive and collaborative strategies. We’ll show you how to shift from strategy development to execution planning and monitoring. And you can widen your strategic repertoire with 80 common and successful patterns of strategy, each showing what you win, what you need and how to do it.
