Strategic Doing: Community Leadership Opportunity for Progress and Impact

Strategic Doing: Community Leadership Opportunity for Progress and Impact

Jun 20, 2019, 9:45 A.M - 11:45 A. M.

Strategic Doing–a 21st century process developed by Purdue’s Agile Strategy Lab – offers ALP members an exciting and innovative means for meeting organizational missions, building partnerships and effective collaborations that produce impact. This workshop shares the basics of Strategic Doing, which experience and research have proven to be successful where traditional approaches to strategic planning are failing. The session will include experiential activities as well as case studies of successful applications for impact, with particular emphasis on use by a community leadership organization to effectively accomplish community leadership goals.  Communities and regions, non-profit organizations, foundations, private industries, etc. have all found Strategic Doing to be helpful in addressing the kinds of challenges that require collaboration.

Specific learning objectives for ALP workshop attendees are:
1) understanding HOW and WHY Strategic Doing is an effective process for managing the complex issues facing communities today
2) understanding basic skills needed for practitioners of Strategic Doing
3) concrete examples for using Strategic Doing to engage and equip citizens (leadership alums and beyond) in attendee communities, to step up as leaders working together effectively for community excellence.
