Beyond Strategic Planning

How to achieve break through results, using entrepreneurial strategic execution.


The concepts traditionally used in strategic planning and execution were introduced more than 50 years ago, well before the age of information. In today’s fast paced and dynamic business world, market conditions and the operating environment will likely change before you have even begun cascading your well thought out and thorough strategic plan through the organisation. Building a culture of entrepreneurial strategic execution provides your business and your strategy with the ability to pivot, react and adjust to emergent conditions, threats and opportunities.

This contemporary and practical program focuses on the capabilities, tools and techniques to bring strategy to life – quickly and effectively. The program provides an understanding of the approaches that drive strategic outcomes with considered clarity, engagement, action and energy as you pursue your strategic goals and vision.

Participants will learn how to effectively structure, lead and manage strategic execution through our unique entrepreneurial strategic execution framework – EASE™.

This program is one of the only strategic execution programs on the market suitable for managers at any level – including more experienced staff who aspire to senior roles.  The program is beneficial and provides practical tools for managers at the frontline as well as “C” suite managers and leaders.

It is suitable for small, large, private and public organisations.

In-House Programs

This program is ideally suited to in-house delivery where your teams can develop their strategic execution plans in a professionally facilitated workshop environment.

“Managers are trained to develop strategy, not to execute it in a rapidly changing world.”

According to PWC only 8% of company leaders excel at strategy and execution. The good news is it’s not you, it’s your education.  In most MBA’s and other strategy training programs 95% of the time is spent on the theory of strategy and only 5% on execution. Yet in the real world the exact opposite is true.

No matter where you look the research reinforces that by increasing strategic execution capability even a small amount, you will be able to produce extraordinary results.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will leave with the knowledge and practical experience to apply an entrepreneurial approach to strategic execution. Participants will also have an opportunity to work on their specific strategic challenges during the program.
