Learn the simple strategic planning steps for success

As an executive tasked with driving strategic change in your organization, you want a framework to maximize your chances of success. You need concrete techniques to help you move beyond good ideas and aspirations to execution.

Leading Strategic Initiatives provides the results-oriented insights into what it takes to implement major change effectively. You will learn how to build a compelling vision, enabling you to sell a program internally. You will discover how to identify the right team members, pick the best ideas and allocate time and other resources to help them achieve your initiative.

Armed with more developed powers of focus, you will also develop a robust toolset for overcoming complacency in yourself and others as the implementation stage proceeds.
