304 Managing Change: Aligning Strategy to Execution

1:30 PM - 2:30 PM ET
Tuesday, December 5

In the macro-environment of today, learning organizations struggle to quickly respond to change. Learning leaders are challenged with the task of aligning strategy to business priorities and having high confidence in achieving positive outcomes. Learning teams struggle to address conflicting demands with the agility to welcome change in requirements during design and development of learning solutions.  

In this session we will discuss how learning leaders can translate strategy to execution and create a culture in which teams can thrive in change and ambiguity by applying a multidisciplinary approach. We will explore how to apply principles from the lean-agile approach to software development and well-established practices in product management to solving complex problems while creating innovative learning teams and confident leadership.  

In this session you will learn how to: 

  • Articulate the need for change in learning organizations and teams 
  • Put in place principles necessary for aligning strategy to execution 
  • Apply agile practices to enable learning teams to thrive in ever-changing conditions
  • Create a learning organization with focus on the flow of value and business impact
