Video: A Look
at the Strategy Forum
The Strategy Forum is an applications-based
workshop for business leaders responsible for achieving clarity,
credibility and sustainability of their organizational strategy. Each
morning of the forum, participants are guided through case studies,
frameworks and activities to assist them in the process of building or
refining their strategy. A peer council will challenge and test amended
strategies at the end of each day. To conclude the forum, each
organization will present its revised strategy statement to forum
participants for peer review and feedback from other executives.
Before the forum begins, participants
will draft an initial strategy for their individual organizations.
Here, executives will begin the process of looking beyond mission,
vision and values—to the strategy of their organizations.
During the five-day forum, participants
will be led through four case studies accompanied by application and
coaching sessions. The case topics include:
Competitor profiling &
Value proposition & strategic
After the forum concludes, participants
will present revised strategies to various groups within their
individual organizations for feedback and further refining. Here,
executives will begin the process of intentionally building and
sustaining competitive advantage through clearly defined strategies.
Six months following the forum,
participants are invited to a fourth, and optional, phase of the
Strategy Forum. Here participants present their latest strategies to
the cohort and reflect on their strategic thinking and planning
Because strategy development and execution
is a team effort, requiring multiple perspectives and alignment across
all executives and the organization as a whole, participating
organizations are strongly encouraged to register at least two senior
managers. In some cases, it would be ideal to register three or four
participants from the same organization, to include the core team that
develops strategy and oversees its execution.
We have structured our fees to encourage
collaboration and participation by multiple members from the same
organization. The fee for the Strategy Forum is $5,000 for the first
participant from each organization. The fee for the second participant
from the same organization will be $4,000, and any additional
participants from the same business are welcome at a rate of $3,000 per
participant. The fee covers tuition, course materials, meals and
lodging. Nonprofit organizations receive a 20% discount. Individuals
and small or early-stage organizations interested in attending an
Anderson Center Forum with limited ability to pay, should inquire about
