Executing with Strategic Speed: Getting it Done

Course Details

Executing with Strategic Speed

Everyone wants things done faster. Products delivered faster with high quality. Services provided fast and with quality. Customers will flock to those organizations that can address speed. Taxpayers and politicians enjoy things moving quickly even in government organizations. Donors enjoy not-for-profits who can focus on success.

This course is based upon the latest research from Harvard Business School which boldly states that strategic speed is not about brilliant strategies. Strategic speed is about making work simpler, adopting the right mind set, and mobilizing people around a sound strategic plan with well-defined core values. If leaders can set the right standard of product completion or service provided, then the employees will perform in a deliberate, intentional manner. This also requires the leader to prioritize jobs/tasks and clearly define expectations. There are four tools based upon the research that all good leaders use. Leaders need to evaluate the Time/Value assessment (current status), a Team Survey (10 minutes or less) describing the clarity of organizational direction, a Leadership SWOT to diagnose problems, and a Speed Matrix to pull it all together.
