Purdue Agile Strategy Lab is heading to Puerto Rico
Three months after Hurricane Maria devastated the island, Puerto Rico is still reeling. Much of the island remains without electricity, reports The Washington Post, and many businesses remain closed. Hurricane Maria has also worsened the island’s massive debt crisis. NPR reports that stretched budgets have also resulted in a serious garbage problem.
Working with our colleagues at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, a sister land grant university, the Agile Strategy Lab will be conducing a 2.5 day training in Strategic Doing, followed by a community strategy workshop. The workshop will enable students from the class to apply their new skills immediately. We are working on the schedule for 1Q2018.
The Lab is providing this work free to our colleagues as a small contribution to help the university get back on its feet.
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.
