Strategic Plan: The Superbowl for Strategic Planners
As strategic planners, we want strategic plans and financial targets that stretch teams, but are achievable. One of the most difficult roles of a strategist is knowing when to challenge teams and when to advocate for them. We help people see the possibilities and provide an objective point of view on the probability of success. To succeed, we need to go back to the fundamentals. All leaders want to have an impact on the outcome. Let’s support them in that goal.

Creating an Innovation Culture
Large organizations have problems creating an innovation culture. They've built up their values, beliefs and behaviours in times that the organization was doing great. They've created processes and policies that allowed them to grow fast in a stable environment, but now that environment is not that stable anymore. Whether it is fintechs threatening banks and insurance companies, or sharing platforms threatening hotels and taxis, large organisations have to react and adapt their culture to allow for innovation.This roundtable discusses innovation culture:- Why do we need an innovation culture?- What is an innovation culture?- How can we change a culture?

Reimagining Your Strategy for the Long-Term
Whenever possible, make changes from a position of strength. Recently Pramerica, Prudential's global captive headquartered in Ireland, determined it needed to stand up a strategy practice to help Prudential continue to capitalize on the opportunity and promise of our increasingly customer-centric and digitized world. Changing from strength or crisis, regardless, when you roll up the sleeves to design and build a practice, and deliver an executable strategy, you’re quickly reminded of what truly matters: Clarity of Purpose (write it down, test it, revise it); Clarity of Place (your company/department/division in the broader ecosystem), and Connection (of people to both the mission and each other).
