Strategy Execution Workshop

What you will learn

Business is all about formulating and executing strategies, yet most don’t have a clear grasp of how this cycle works, or what steps and phases are involved. Moreover, most organizations simply fail at installing and maintaining the management systems required to translate strategy into action—effectively, repeatedly and measurably.

When you take this one-day workshop, you’ll learn how strategic thinking, planning and execution can tie together into a seamless continuum and repeatable cycle. Then you’ll spend most of your time learning proven practices, tools and frameworks for deploying strategy throughout an organization.

This session is led by a BMGI master consultant who has hands-on experience with strategy execution in diverse environments and who will share real-world examples of what went well and, even more importantly, what went wrong. They will guide you through a seven-step process for ensuring strategic objectives are translated into actionable and measurable projects. You will start with establishing an organizational vision and strategic blueprint. Then, you will learn how to break larger objectives into smaller pieces, measure and review progress toward goals, and manage improvement efforts in a systematic way.

As an added bonus, the instructor will offer interesting advice about how to apply innovative thinking during all stages of strategy execution—helping to unleash and focus needed creative forces that far too often lie unhelpfully dormant in most organizations.

Learning Objectives: 

After attending this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Utilize the seven-step Hoshin planning process to deliver results.
  • Select and develop meaningful metrics.
  • Support the creation of a daily management system to sustain improvements.
  • Begin the integration of design thinking into the continuum of value creation activities.
