MAKING STRATEGY EFFECTIVE


“To make the future is highly risky. It is less risky, however, than not to try to make it.” — Peter F. Drucker

Note: This page prepared exclusively for Disney | ABC Television Group.

In this two-day experience, your team will learn and apply Peter Drucker’s methods for making strategy effective. There will be no presentations or lectures. Instead, we’ll get to your big ideas through interactive small-group work that builds on cross-functional insights. Our Un/Workshops are known for their proven ability to help executives move quickly from ideas to action to results, just as Drucker urged his own consulting clients: “Don’t tell me you had a wonderful meeting with me. Tell me what you’re going to do on Monday that’s different.”

WHAT YOU GET

Tools for Leaders

We will give your leaders powerful tools to bring home, ones that are simple but not simplistic. These proven, Drucker-based practices will help them improve the contribution they make through their work and maximize their team’s results.

Actual Alignment

Peter Drucker practiced what has been called “the scholarship of commonsense.” Your team will learn methods to create actual alignment across all kinds of functional areas and leadership styles—not by overpowering any of them, but by naturally complementing the best of what’s already there.

A Plan for Action

Each step of the Un/Workshop process builds toward the ultimate goal of planning to make Monday different. We have worked with hundreds of senior executives over many years, and 97% of them have told us that the experience will, over time, make them more effective in their work.
