Global Strategy Institute 2007 Anniversary Conference
How well does your organization balance short-term priorities with longer-term visions? How well does your organization promote anticipatory thinking and strategic leadership? How well is your organization positioned for the future?
Today's leaders face mounting pressures from dizzying information flows, contracting planning cycles, and greater interconnectivity in the world. The consideration of long-range global forces has become a luxury few organizations can afford and yet cannot afford to miss. How do the people at the helm of today's leading organizations cope with these challenges?
For our 2007 anniversary conference, "Navigating the Future: the people, the plans, and the policies guiding leading organizations," we invited our audience to explore how organizations at the forefront of the dot-com, dot-gov, dot-org, and dot-edu arenas construct and implement long-term visions and strategies. Please see the attached presentations and audio for more information from the event.
