To respond to this challenging time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have developed a number of online training options, and are (as of September 2020) beginning to schedule in-person sessions as well. Contact us with questions or to discuss a training at your organization.

Strategic Doing: Leading Complex Collaborations (Online)

September 28 - October 29



Learn how to deploy Strategic Doing to move a group from picking the challenge they need to address, all the way through implementation. This new online course format from the Agile Strategy Lab at the University of North Alabama delivers the same learning outcomes as the 2.5 day in-person training that’s been offered throughout the US and Canada (with a number of European sessions to boot). Now, no matter where you live, you can take part in this practical and accessible learning experience.

The format for this course is both asynchronous and synchronous, and includes short sessions over four weeks:

Part I: Beginning September 28, through October 19, you’ll be part of an accelerated version of our seven-module online course, “10 Skills for Agile Leadership.” This part of the course is asynchronous – that is, you’ll access the course and complete assignments at any time you’d like, as long as you turn assignments in by specified dates (you can plan on 5-6 hours of work each week). There will also be a few “watering hole” sessions in which the entire group will come together via Zoom to discuss the content.

Part II: Then, you’ll participate in a four-module synchronous (live) component that builds on the 10 skills to show you how to put them together in a Strategic Doing workshop. You’ll work with your fellow learners to design and participate in a workshop simulation, and you’ll take the first steps to designing your own workshop. This component of the course will be held on the following dates and times (to accommodate most timezones – if you’re in Asia or Australia, please reach out to us for options) – note that participants must attend all sessions:

  • October 20: 11 am – 1 pm Eastern
  • October 22: 11 am – 1 pm Eastern
  • October 27: 11 am – 1 pm Eastern
  • October 29: 11 am – 1 pm Eastern

As part of the course, you’ll receive the Strategic Doing Practitioner’s Field GuideStrategic Doing: 10 Skills for Agile Leadership (Wiley, 2019), the Agile Leadership Workbook, and a Table Guide Trail Map. You’ll also have access to an online resource library and become part of a community of more than 1,300 people who have taken the course. Upon completion , you’ll be a Strategic Doing “practitioner,” ready to lead a team through the process – and you’ll receive a “digital credential” to that effect. Put itv n a social media profile, electronic resume, etc. The credential communicates to colleagues, potential collaborators, and employers exactly what skills you’ve acquired and how. You’ll also receive a total of 3.0 CEUs for participating in the course.

This course serves as an entry point to Strategic Doing – you can continue to develop your skills by becoming a certified Strategic Doing workshop leader, by enrolling in an online certification course (the next session will start in January 2021).
