In partnership with Purdue University’s Agile Strategy Lab, Selkirk College is offering training designed to help you lead complex collaborations. Take part in three days of engaged learning and join an active, global network of Strategic Doing practitioners.


Strategic Doing enables people to form action-oriented collaborations quickly, move them toward measurable outcomes, and make adjustments along the way.  It yields replicable, scalable, and sustainable collaborations based on simple rules.  In today’s world, collaboration is essential to meet the complex challenges we face. Strategic Doing enables leaders to design and guide new networks that generate innovative solutions. It is a new strategy discipline that is lean, agile and fast—just what organisations, communities and regions need to survive and thrive. Key learning objectives include:

  • Understanding the power of networks
  • Recognising the value of developing measurable strategic outcomes
  • Using Pathfinder projects to get collaborations started
  • Using short 30-day action plans
Expand your ability to lead collaborations:
  • explain this new approach to strategy
  • discover what works and expand upon it
  • design and lead Strategic Doing workshops
  • create and guide sophisticated collaborations
  • find new opportunities and quickly take action
  • lead strategies without “command and control”
This training will take place from September 25-27, 2017 from 9 am to 4 pm. You can take this course as standalone endeavour or as a stepping stone toward certification. Certification in Strategic Doing involves classroom instruction as well as field work with coaching from Strategic Doing faculty.

“I’ve worked with large companies trying to do open innovation, but the Strategic Doing process is unique. This is the clearest and concise open innovation process I’ve seen.” Mark Scotland, CEO 4.0 Analytics
“Strategic Doing is the tool that had the greatest impact in really being something that we could activate.” Kim Thurlow, Ivy Tech
“Decision-making in higher education institutions is infamously slow, with multiple layers of approvals and an emphasis on the need for new resources. Strategic Doing’s focus on what we could, should and will do with the existing talents, resources and authority of the people in the room at the time breaks people free of that limited thinking and helps them move forward in real time.” Rena Cotsones, Northern Illinois University
