Presented by

About this talk

The effectiveness of classic approaches to aligning execution with strategic plans are increasingly questioned by executives & managers. Operational processes are not keeping up with the pace of change and strategic plans are becoming obsolete before they are printed. Is eliminating long-range planning the answer? Not when investors and board members are expecting more transparency on long-term plans and performance expectations! The big question keeping you up at night - “How can my execution efforts remain aligned with my corporate strategy in the face of constant change”? Few executives have found a realistic path to put innovation management theory into practice. Many realize that things need to change, but are concerned that required changes will inflict significant disruption within their companies, and are dubious that the effort will yield promised growth. To achieve true Strategic Agility, you need to improve the way you manage execution efforts while staying aligned with the corporate strategy and still meeting customer needs. You must also anticipate changes in market dynamics and re-prioritize the innovation initiatives and product portfolios accordingly. In this session learn about: Strategic Agility * What it is and why does it matter in 2011 & beyond * How legacy approaches to strategy and R&D planning are falling short Building Blocks on the Road to Strategic Agility * Analyzing and acting on changes in markets, competition, and customer preference * How business portfolios, opportunity, and risks are evaluated and integrated on a dynamic basis * How companies are re-envisioning the way they prioritize portfolios, people, resources and initiatives * Current best practices and promising approaches that are having big impacts Critical Tools that Enable Strategic Agility * How current challenges of strategic agility are being addressed using an entirely new class of technology that compresses timing between market insight & execution
