Aligning Strategy With Organizational Capabilities


“Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.” – Peter Drucker

This workshop provides you the opportunity to convert your strategy from good intentions to bottom-line results. Key elements in this conversion are organizational capabilities – things like speed of change, innovation, connection with your customers, or collaboration. Such capabilities enable you to get the results you seek. You will experience a process in which you will choose a few organizational capabilities that are essential to delivering your strategy and then designing organizational processes and systems to bring the capabilities to life.



In this one-day workshop we will use the Organizational Systems Model to connect the links between strategy, organizational capabilities, other critical systems, culture, and business results.Your organization is perfectly designed to get the results it gets. If your strategy calls for better results than in the past, you can’t get there with yesterday’s organization.
