Adaptive Strategic Execution

A New Approach to Business

Taking Project-Based Work to the Next Level

The complexity of today’s business context demands that organizations regularly revisit their strategy and adapt their work, all while accelerating the speed of execution. Organizations must consistently balance the need to achieve strategic goals and respond to changes in their industries and markets in order to drive business success.


How Work Gets Done

Projects are the means by which strategies are executed and goals are achieved. As projects become more critical, and the environment in which they are executed grows more volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA), the need to become more adaptive heightens. At every level, leaders of project-based work are forced to be more responsive to unanticipated market shifts, more resilient to unpredictable disruptions, and more adaptive in situations where what “has always worked” no longer does. Having leaders with the right approach, methods, tools, and capability to drive project-based work is an organization’s most valuable asset.

Leaders are the leverage point to execute projects and drive results. By developing leaders with the right mindset and skill set to navigate this business context, organizations can increase their ability to execute strategy and achieve goals.


Courses: Adaptive Strategic Execution Program

Our Adaptive Strategic Execution Program (ASEP), established in partnership with Duke Corporate Education, consists of eight courses, each of which is focused on developing leaders of project-based work as they navigate unanticipated market shifts and unpredictable industry disruptions.
