Forming a partnership with UNC Chapel Hill School of Government
In late May, Janet Holston, head of strategic initiatives for the School of Government at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, organized over 40 faculty and staff for a day long introduction to our work in agile strategy. We had the opportunity to meet with the School’s Dean, Mike Smith, to discuss how the School could leverage our work in agile strategy.
We are moving forward, based on Janet leadership. Janet sent along the following note:
“The School’s public leadership faculty are quite interested in Strategic Doing and the opportunity to have a training at School of Government, as well as offering it in courses for others.”
In addition, we discussed the opportunity to coordinate our work with the faculty to establish a new field of research in collaboration science. (In addition, we have faculty at the School of Planning, Public Policy and Management at the University of Oregon who are interested in working on this opportunity.)
The Director of the Lab at UNA and co-author of Strategic Doing: 10 Skills for Agile Leadership, Ed’s work has focused on developing new models of strategy specifically designed to accelerate complex collaboration in networks and open innovation. He is the original developer of Strategic Doing.
