    Activating Strategy Online Course: Enroll by November 17

    Activating Strategy Online Course: Enroll by November 17

    Strategy is often portrayed as a thinking exercise—a set of decisions and plans made by a small group. But strategy is brought to life by the people in every part of an organization every day. Engaging the people critical to both creating and activating your strategy is an element missing from most strategy approaches.

    In our new course, Activating Strategy, you’ll learn how to make more informed choices by getting tangible and running small tests, assess your resources and readiness to ensure your strategy is actionable, and scale and sustain your organization’s ability to support strategy across functions, departments, and teams. No matter where you sit in your organization or what strategy frameworks or processes you use—this course can help you ensure your teams have the shared understanding, alignment, and conditions they need to move confidently from strategy to action.

Favorite podcast on creativity!

The podcast provides great content bridging the framework of design thinking from IDEO and real business applications from entrepreneurs and innovators from all over the world. It has changed my way of thinking around business building. It’s so much rewarding to learn about creativity and value adding for communities and society, meanwhile building a great business out of it. Recommend everyone who’s aspired to create a business to listen!

OK but some of the guests are annoying

Getting tired of some know-it-all guests talking pedantically in a slow and measured way as if we’re all five year old idiots. Just talk normally. Thank You.

practical tips for work

On several of these episodes I find myself taking notes and learning things to try out at work.

Also like how they often answer questions about how to advance new ideas/change things up.
