Adaptive Strategic Execution

Adaptive Strategic Execution

Leaders of project-based work at every level of the organization must have the right skill sets, adaptive approach, and responsive mindset to help them and their organizations navigate an increasingly complex and collaborative environment. Each course in the new curriculum is purposefully designed to extend the mindset, toolset, and skill set of the project-based work leader to navigate these three domains in increasingly complex contexts.

There will be eight courses within this curriculum. Additional titles will be added as they become available.

  • Aligning Work with Strategy

    Aligning Work with Strategy sensitizes participants to the mindset necessary to think and act strategically as they lead and execute work in their organizations. Attendees focus on the mutually supportive skills of translating the larger organizational 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.

  • Building Effective Teams

    Building Effective Teams focuses on how to implement practices for leading highly effective teams in unstable and often distributed environments. Participants will learn how to build and guide diverse teams that can navigate the impacts of external and internal forces and how to form, coach, and lead teams who are resilient and responsive to complex work and volatile contexts.

  • Delivering Business Value

    Delivering Business Value provides an overview of the financial and business acumen and analysis skills needed to ensure that project-based work results in true value for the business. Not only do participants gain insight and skill in financial planning while leading project-based work, but also, they learn how to make smarter financial decisions that lead to improved business outcomes.

  • Design Thinking for Results

    Design Thinking for Results engages participants in a discussion about an iterative design process which bridges imagination and implementation to help organizations rapidly and incrementally address complex challenges, create value, and grow. Participants will explore the need for customer-focused thinking and learn that not all innovation involves product innovation. They will experience the value that innovating around processes and services can bring to an organization and discover how to implement a test-and-learn mentality that capture more value for the organization more quickly.

  • Driving and Influencing Change

    Driving and Influencing Change explores the attitudes, behaviors, and skills that leaders require to help organizations develop the capabilities to navigate the uncertainty caused by complex environments. Participants learn the science behind how individuals respond to change, and receive tools to reduce resistance and increase engagement in a change process.

  • Influencing without Authority

    Influencing Without Authority equips participants with the skills needed to build credibility and effectively influence stakeholders, even if they lack the formal authority to make demands on resources. This course helps attendees understand the attitudes and behaviors of leaders who know how to get work done through influence and persuasion whether managing up, down, across, or diagonally within organizations.

  • Making Sense of Complexity

    Making Sense of Complexity focuses on the very nature of our working contexts today, arguing that the work we do is more complex than ever and that this complexity demands new approaches. Participants will learn how to recognize, diagnose, and respond appropriately to complex environments and situations in a highly interactive course setting. The course serves as an introduction and touch point to the rest of the courses in the program.
