In this 7-hour workshop, Carl Pritchard will help participants ask intelligent questions about their professional direction and how it aligns with the over-arching vision of their organizations, as well as the organization’s clients. During the course of the workshop, participants will be tasked to create a vision statement for their professional “arena” and will identify components of the core elements of strategy. They will also evaluate and specify at least three day-to-day activities within their sphere that enable the organization to move forward strategically, even if they’re doing it at a micro level. There will be a class example of identifying a class example of one student’s representative business objective, and how they envision organizational change as a result. This example will be examined using The Core Elements of Strategy. In reviewing the core elements of strategy, the discussion will examine how strategy serves as a bridge between the tactical and the objective, reinforcing the need for SMART outcomes and upper- and lower-level buy-in. During the day, the discussion will focus on the impact of Values, Performance, Environment, Intent, Concepts, Objectives, and Integrating the Tactical . Registration includes continental breakfast, lunch and materials, including the book Hope Is Not a Method: What Business Leaders Can Learn from America's Army
