Strategy, Values & Leadership
Talented people create more work than they can do.  Said another way, we "value" too many things. 
Similarly, our firms often generate more strategic initiatives than can be resourced, implemented and sustained.  This often culminates in extraordinary expectations on information technology leadership and their teams.
Strategic focus begins with an ability to bring sophistication and precision to the strategic "values" that compete for our team's priorities. 
How can IT leaders shape these for their teams while also influencing the strategy of the organization? 
Our discussion will include consideration of these challenges and practical strategies that seek to answer this question.
 Topics to be covered include:

  • Portray the integrated role of values, leadership, and strategy
  • Identify your organization's real (or aspirational) strategic values noting differentiation among them
  • Apply these considerations to a strategic value mapping exercise to assist you in leading in prioritization of initiatives
