Adaptive Strategic Execution Programme

Aligning Work with Strategy

Learn how to align your own work with the organisation’s strategy, how to influence strategy and provide feedback within a complex environment.

Aligning Work with Strategy sensitises participants to the mindset necessary to think and act strategically as they lead and execute work in their organisations. Attendees focus on the mutually supportive skills of translating the larger organisational strategy to their own work and architecting their own strategies for executing this work. Additionally, participants learn the importance of having a strategic frame of reference that maintains alignment of strategy with the critical domains of work and people to enable effective execution.

The course introduces multiple viewpoints on strategy and illustrates how today’s complex environment requires a more adaptable, responsive, and fluid concept of strategy. It reinforces the need for a more tightly coupled feedback loop between strategy and execution. Participants also learn various ways to maintain alignment between their own local level strategies and the larger overarching organisational strategy that they are ultimately responsible for implementing.
