Strategy Is Important, But Execution is Everything
It has been said that a "B" strategy executed well is better than an "A" strategy executed poorly. But, what if your competitor has an "A" strategy? What if you are in a market with others who all have "B" strategies? Get insights into how to find the right strategy and how to align your organization to be "on strategy" so that you create disproportionate value versus competitors.
Are You Prepared for the "Risk of Risks"?
Risk management too often doesn't properly consider all of the strategic risks that could jeopardize the brand and reputation value of the organization. Learn how to categorize reputation risks, build a risk matrix for brand and reputation risks, and how to identify, assess and manage risks before they build to crises.
