Implementing Winning Strategies: The Breakthrough Strategic Learning Process

Participant Profile
Implementing Winning Strategies is designed for executives of all levels responsible for strategic planning, with primary responsibility for making the changes necessary to enable effective execution of strategy, or those with P&L responsibility who seek to become more strategic in their thinking. 

Admissions Qualifications: 
Successful candidates should have managerial experience and responsibilities matching a program’s “Who Should Attend” or “Participant Profile” description. All registrations are subject to approval by Columbia Business School.

In today’s dynamic world, the old static planning methods no longer work. The key to success is to create an adaptive enterprise capable of generating winning strategies and renewing those strategies as the environment changes.

Implementing Winning Strategies, formerly known as the Creating and Executing Breakthrough Strategy program, offers a set of practical tools to achieve this kind of organizational agility. The program introduces you to the Strategic Learning Process, a unique 4-step model which has been battle tested and is being applied successfully by many global companies and not-for-profit organizations to create and implement winning strategies repeatedly over time.

Strategic Learning is an insight-to-action process. The four linked action steps move in a cycle: 

1) Learn about the external environment and your organization’s own realities; 
2) Focus by making choices about where you will compete and how you will win; 
3) Align your people and your business system behind your strategy; 
4) Execute faster and better than your competitors.

That takes the firm back to the Learn step, thus creating an ongoing cycle of learning and renewal.

You will learn how to apply the market-tested Strategic Learning methodology: the four-step cycle designed to create and sustain winning performance. During the program, you will be given a workbook of practical tools you can use immediately upon returning to your organization.
