The complexity of today’s business context demands a new approach for organizations to achieve strategic goals while adapting to constant shifts and disruptions in the marketplace. Organizations need to continuously align and adjust strategy and work, while ensuring their people have the right mindset and capabilities to enable the organization to meet the ever-changing demands of an increasingly uncertain environment.
In response to these demands, TwentyEighty Strategy Execution
and Duke Corporate Education
have partnered and developed a solution for today’s business and project leadership challenges. The partnership combines decades of academic and professional expertise and is anchored by the Adaptive Strategic Execution Program
, which focuses on developing and empowering leaders of project-based work in volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) environments.
In this webinar, Strategy Execution’s Vice President of Product Management, Jonathan Gilbert and Duke Corporate Education’s Global Head of Strategic Leadership Solutions, Tony O’Driscoll will discuss the unique new partnership and explain how leaders of project-based work need to be more responsive
to unanticipated market shifts, more resilient
as they face unpredicted disruptions, and more adaptable
to changing situations where what “has always worked” no longer does.
