Strategy War Rooms – Using Innovative Technology to Support Strategic Decision Making
When you look at the technology that business leaders have to support strategic decision making and the technology their children have to support them in tackling strategy exercises the contrast is dramatic: business leaders have PowerPoint and spreadsheets, their kids have immersive, data rich, real time simulations like Call of Duty. In a nutshell, business leaders are not well served by the technology they’re using. This Masterclass will examine the underlying concepts, design and practice of technology-supported War Rooms and how business leaders can use them as decision environments for dealing with complex and fast-moving situations.
The session will begin with a review of three historical cases illustrating the development and design of War Rooms, exploring how the approach has evolved from the invention of War Rooms during World War II to how they are being used to guide today’s cybersecurity battles. The focus will then transition to examination of how your organization can adapt the War Room methodology to tackle decision-making on complex strategic issues. You will have the opportunity to learn from case studies demonstrating the ways in which organizations have utilized technology and the War Room approach to successfully define and make business decisions.
