4: Getting Strategic About Doing with Guest Ed Morrison
Play • 20 min

Guest Ed Morrison applies the approach of “Strategic Doing” to workforce and economic development. Applying this newer model of strategic planning opens the door to solve complex challenges through productive collaboration.  [Show Notes]  [Bonus Content]

Founder of the Agile Strategy Lab at Purdue University, Ed developed a new discipline called Strategic Doing to shift from old strategy approaches that were designed for hierarchies and don’t work well in modern-day networks. To develop a strategy under this new approach, two questions must be answered: Where are we going? How will we get there? 

Using Strategic Frameworks helps practitioners in workforce development take their domain knowledge further. It provides a framework for networks to make collaboration a powerful, effective process, and it shifts the conversation from answering to stakeholders to creating a network of shareholders.  

Ed answers the tough questions like: For organizations who are accountable to multiple organizations and both internal and external stakeholders, how might we gain both clarity and consensus through the Strategic Doing process? Can Strategic Doing make our interactions more efficient? What research is available to demonstrate the benefits of the Strategic Doing model?
