A structured approach to the work that needs to be done on strategy in preparation for the strategy planning cycle.

Making strategy ‘adoption-ready’ ensures that all those involved in the strategy planning cycle are informed and prepared for the strategic conversations to come and guided by clear, time-based strategic priorities.
For a strategy to be adoption-ready it needs to have clear and explicit executive intentions that can be delegated and responded to by front-line teams. This means that strategy needs to be interpreted into time-based goals that, together, will bring about the intended strategic change.

Since this workshop is all about translating executive intent into front-line action, it is suitable for everyone from senior executives (e.g. members of senior leadership teams) to managers of front-line teams (e.g. directors of professional services or heads of schools).
Facilitated by Dr Mike Baxter, from GoalAtlas.com, this workshop will draw on his own experience as a leader in higher education, his 20 years of strategy consultancy and his recent benchmarking research on university strategies to facilitate a practical, structured, evidence-based approach to making strategy adoption-ready.
