Strategy Management Basics: Positive Impact and the Kaplan-Norton Balanced Scorecard
  • About

    This course is focused on the fundamentals of managing strategy, those essential to effective Balanced Scorecard use. Over the two days we will teach participants the core concepts they need to know to articulate their strategy in a manageable framework, prioritize their strategic initiatives, run a meaningful strategy governance cadence, and be strong leaders of strategy. It is the perfect level of detail for business unit leaders that are interested in driving sustainable results.

    Taught by experienced consultants, this class relies on a mix of (1) theory to ground delegates in relevant principles, (2) examples that help delegates think critically about concept application, and (3) exercises to allow delegates to practice using and adapting key tools. Our faculty can readily share anecdotes on any topic from their own set of practical experiences.

    The 2-day program is a sub-section of the broader “Kaplan-Norton Strategy Execution Boot Camp: Positive Impact and the Execution Premium Process™,” the only training course endorsed by Drs. Kaplan and Norton, co-creators of the Balanced Scorecard and on Harvard Business Publishing’s list of top business thinkers of our time. We would suggest that strategic planning functions and executive leadership consider the complete Boot Camp experience, which is required for as part of the certification program, to fully understand successful strategy execution at an organization-wide level.

    Outcomes include:

    • A clear knowledge of the foundational components of effective strategy execution
    • Ability to articulate how sustainable business strategies are good for long-term financial returns
    • Familiarity with ways of describing strategy tools that can be leveraged as the basis for educating your organization
    • Stronger network of relationships with other strategy-minded professionals
    • Ideas that can be applied to help your organization articulate a stronger strategy, implement it more effectively, and realize greater impact
