Overview
Explore a new way of thinking about strategy
Today’s complexities demand agility and collaboration to do strategic work. This course introduces a strategy discipline called Strategic Doing.

The course will help you sharpen your ability to think horizontally in networks and you’ll gain insights on building trust at scale even among people who have never worked together before. You’ll understand what strategic conversations are and how they can be guided. You’ll also learn how strategies can be designed, tested, and adjusted rather than just sit on the page of a strategic plan gathering dust.

This course is for individuals who are interested in helping lead strategic transformations in their organizations or communities.

What topics will you cover?
