Rapid Strategic Learning: A System for Managing Strategy

Does your organization quickly maneuver and adapt to changing conditions?  Do you have a system to learn rapidly and adjust course? Or does your organization call for full steam ahead like the Titanic, following the old strategic plan even if it has become outdated?  Do your operational leaders feel overwhelmed as one strategic initiative is piled on top of the others?  In today’s quick pace environment, learn how to both quickly develop and test a successful strategy as well as connect the system for managing your strategy to your lean management system.

Strategic planning and deployment is the process of choosing a set of breakthrough initiatives to propel the organization toward its vision, or True North, then deploying those initiatives under conditions of uncertainty and competition. You must learn quickly through disciplined, rapid experimentation as you implement these initiatives to create unique value for customers.

Through this program, learn a framework to define and draft new strategies aligned with achieving your organization's aspirations or True North. Learn how to test your breakthrough strategy assumptions and develop fail-fast experiments while balancing these breakthrough initiatives with your improvement system to close the gap on True North, deploying priorities in a respectful way.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Learn and practice the key components of a Strategic System in a lean organization.
  • Demonstrate how to apply the P-D-S-A cycle to develop and implement clear, concise strategic initiatives to achieve True North.
  • Express how the organization’s management system, continuous improvement, strategy deployment, and True North connect to focus and align work within the organization.
