Strategy Implementation refers to the execution of the plans to accomplish the organization's long-term goals. It converts the opted strategy into the moves and actions of the organization to achieve the objectives. In today's world driven by change, it is a rare and valuable skill set that sets apart the most successful and influential leaders in business. Individuals with proven ability to implement strategy are in high demand worldwide. Yet, the current generation of leaders has been taught how to plan but not how to implement. This is reflected in the high strategy implementation failure rate, which drives the need for leaders to enhance their abilities and become recognized implementation specialists. Yet, often, managers and leaders are asked to implement their organization's strategy but are not provided with the guidance or any kind of roadmap to do so. To fill in this implementation gap, we have developed the Strategy Implementation Roadmap, which consists of the seven pillars required to be successful in implementation. This webinar will focus on exploring each of the pillars of this new and easy-to-apply framework that will help you build your own strategy implementation roadmap.
How Supply Chains Can Be More Resilient by Practicing Lean, Green & Agile Methodologies in a Post Pandemic Era
Supply Chains are the back bone of economies across the world. At the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, we have witnessed how the supply chains collapsed in a short span of time leading the world to a disastrous condition. Many experts termed this phenomenon as Black Swan, nevertheless the world needs to formulate robust strategies in order that we do not get into this disaster in future again. Question is how do we make our Supply Chains resilient to absorb future shocks? My research undertaken on this subject has dealt with various Lean, Green and Agile Methodologies to recommend a frame work which may rescue the future supply chains from the ill effects which the COVID 19 Pandemic brought to the world. This session shall address the importance of Lean, Green and Agile to bring resilience for global supply chains. It shall elaborate on the effectiveness of Lean, Green and Agile methodologies through our work employing validated Research Methodologies during the time of the pandemic. It shall also enumerate on how Lean, Green and Agile methodologies can be suitably adapted for revival of Supply Chains in post- pandemic era.

Disruption is the darling concept of the business press, and the preferred strategic orientation.
