THE NEXT STEP FOR STRATEGY ARCHITECTS
Move from strategic planning to strategic alertness and agility
Why is it relevant now?
The enterprise world is in a constant state of strategy design, transformation, innovation and execution. Strategy architects are people who are concerned with the design and execution of strategy in organizations. In other words, Executive Leadership, Strategy Departments and Strategy or Program Execution Offices are all types of strategy architects.
Strategy architects face a common set of challenges as the demand increases to ensure that the organization remains relevant. Common problems that strategy architects are challenged with might include: How do we increase the strategic alertness of the organization? How do we get the organization to align around a common purpose? How do we breakdown persistent silos? How do we identify the right programs and initiatives that are necessary to drive success? How do we prioritize and sequence all of this work and align it with other things we have to do across business functions? How do we ensure the solutions we deliver meet our original strategic intent and definition of success?
