Location: Washington DC - Tysons Corner, VA, Sheraton Hotel.

     Presentation: "Strategy Leadership Trumps Strategy Management"

Whether a non-profit, government agency, or commercial enterprise, the most frequently missing link to strategic planning is clarity. Without clarity, a strategic plan is nothing more than a bunch of well-intended purposes requiring burdensome, costly hands-on management (not leadership) resulting in slow responses to today's fast changing environments. Attendees will receive a set of tools that will assure six points of clarity within their strategic plans. Among the tools is "The Same Page", a document that not only facilitates the creation of the plan, but also serves as a tool to assure the successful execution of the plan; and the Structure that visibly shows how the many plan purposes are connected and supported as well as a way to measure the clarity of the plan.

Session III, May 1, 10:30 - 11:45 PM

Location: Lincolnshire, IL, Marriott Resort.

    Presentation: "Organizational Alignment Connected with Strategy"

Integrating business strategy and quality systems begins with addressing culture and the fundamental building blocks of organizations – PEOPLE and how they think. When thinking is addressed first, these tasks become less difficult. How do you create a culture that supports the best service possible for any organization? During this session, attendees will learn the answers to such questions as: How do you get Alignment throughout the organization? How do you rethink, reset and execute for results? How do you re-energize an existing strategic plan? How do you achieve agreement between different cultures on one plan? Why can't people just get aligned? What is the cost of misalignment? How can you see strategic alignment before execution?
