Watch the invitation from Diana
On October 30, CAF leader Diana Joseph hosts an open workshop at Product Development Days – Signals to Strategy: Navigating an uncertain future. If you want to improve the ways you work on your strategy, join this rich in content, 4 – hour session.
About the program:
Let’s face it – things have changed. What will you do about it? Double-down on what you’ve been doing all along? Hunker down and wait for things to return to normal? Or will you adapt — changing your business significantly in light of new opportunities and challenges?
As much as we’d all like to be certain of what happens next — any choice you make is an experiment.
In this active, hands-on virtual workshop series, you will join with other entrepreneurs to think through what current changes mean for your business going forward.
What we will learn together
– How to identify signals, and extrapolate their consequences
– How to shape your system in the direction you want it to go, through frequent, lightweight experiments
– How to influence your stakeholders around the key needs of your work.
Signals and Consequences:
– Revisit your vision and mission – why are you in this game, and who are you serving?
– Identify signals – changes happening in the world of your business, that can give you a hint about what might come next.
– Explore potential consequences of these signals – where are we going from here?
– Sketch a causal chain between the signals you see, and the mission you aim to achieve.
Shaping the system:
– Sketch out the system in which you work. What must change for your work to thrive?
– How can you influence that change?
– Identify the most powerful hypothesis for testing
– Design a business experiment to shed light on your question
– Who are your stakeholders? What do they need? What pressures do they face in their role in the system?
– Develop a strategy canvas, the Innovation Dashboard (Boni & Joseph) to guide the work of aligning with your stakeholders – adjusting your position to fit what is meaningful to your stakeholders, and influencing them to move in the direction of the ideas you have identified as meaningful
