Strategic Agility in a Disruptive World

  • DePaul University O’Hare Campus 8770 West Bryn Mawr Avenue, Room 209 Chicago, IL, 60631 United States (map)

Disruption, turbulence and risk are here to stay. Every leader must be able to quickly adapt to changing circumstances or performance will suffer.  This sobering reality requires leaders to make agile strategic decisions and remain focused on what matters most: Your customer, strategy, and people.  Agile teams sense and respond more quickly to disruption and/or opportunities, and place small bets to keep options open.


This session is designed to cultivate agility in strategic decision-making through introducing you to practical tools and skills required to drive successful agile execution, including:

  • Scenario Planning” to assess external trends and guide flexible strategic decision-making
  •  “Agile OKRs” to create organizational alignment and a culture of trust, commitment, engagement and collaboration
  •  “Double-loop Learning” to make mid-course correction to agilely adapt the strategy to the changing environment
  •  “Strategy Management Calendar” to establish the cadence and navigate the team through a fast cycle strategy execution process
