Having a well-articulated strategy, and plan of execution for it, has never been more important given today’s volatile and uncertain markets. Even if priorities must change more frequently, they must be clear at all levels of an organization. As such, the role of the strategy executive is evolving, too, to fit new marketplace realities. Example areas of Council discussion include:

  • Pursuing new forms growth and managing the corporate portfolio within shifting industry landscapes
  • Engaging the full organization in strategy and ensuring its execution
  • Integrating innovation, IT, talent and culture into the broader corporate strategy framework

By learning from each other, we stay one step ahead in this ever-changing game.
