Executing Strategic Change in Dynamic Environments

Stanford Graduate School of Business

In today's rapidly changing business environment, senior executives must be able to execute strategic action quickly. Yet behind every strategic goal lies an intricate web of complications and challenges. Leaders who recognize the need for strategic change must determine whether a particular approach is likely to be successful, and then are faced with the task of implementing the change to its conclusion.

In an intimate workshop format, this program connects senior leaders with top faculty and change practitioners to learn the art and science of executing strategic change.

Content Overview

Executing Strategic Change provides business leaders with powerful frameworks and tools to translate a stated strategy into organizational action. The program is unique in its approach since participants work in small groups to discuss and analyze their strategic change initiatives. In the process, participants perform a thorough analysis of their specific change goals and context, presenting their situations to executive peers and faculty and receiving candid feedback and advice.

Based on world-renowned research and teaching in the field and the extensive experience of a change practitioner, the program applies a unique blend of academic research and executive experience to specific change initiatives that participants are leading. Class size is limited to maximize interaction between faculty and participants, and post-program follow-up is available to evaluate the change implementation process.
