In a world of complexity and change, what drives your company’s strategic decisions? The innovations of competitors? The buying trends of customers? The economic climate?
What is the best way to leverage your people and your culture? What innovative ideas should you take risks with? What market segments should you enter, and why? How will you properly measure and evaluate performance? How will you respond to surprises?
An effective strategy is built on the answers to these questions. With the right thinking, the right processes and the right tools, you will get those answers.
Leadership is proven only under constraint: no vision comes easily, strategic plans run onto the rocks of sudden and unexpected change, conflicts arise within teams.
A person becomes a leader the day they take responsibility for the condition of the environment in which they find themselves, and does something about it. From there on, leadership is a long but rewarding adventure towards legacy. On the way, wisdom and skill has to be acquired, failures redeemed, and difficult decisions made that impact lives.
With the right people alongside you on that journey, challenges will transform into successes.
Technology matters, but value is created by people, for people. When the creative process is fueled by diversity, magic happens. The trouble is, difference is also the primary source of conflict.
Layer over this the speed of change in an interconnected world, geographically dispersed teams, and the growth of virtual teaming technology, and you have a heady mix of risks and opportunities.
Extraordinary levels of collaboration are possible, even with virtual work-teams: collaboration that yields deep insight, radical creativity, and higher value for the customer - and resilience in the face of change.
