CI Managers frequently express frustration at the inability of their organizations to take action on seemingly sound, actionable competitive intelligence insights. Whether it is due to deficiencies in the way intelligence is delivered, deficiencies in managers’ ability to translate intelligence findings into strategic options, or deficiencies in strategy development and implementation practices, the fact remains: CI functions are experiencing a widening gap between their outputs and the organization’s ability to act on them.
In this session, Outward insights Managing partner Ken Sawka will explore some of the reasons that prevent organizations from acting on intelligence findings. He will then explore several models for decision execution from Stanford University, Jim Collins, and others. Then, session participants will explore practical applications from these models to pinpoint solutions to the forces that prevent strategy implementation from intelligence findings.
