What is Living Strategy?

Living Strategy is an iterative process for leadership teams to reinvent their strategy or planning process. In a reality where some things are disrupted overnight and other parts are frustratingly non-changing at the same time.To draw out the true force and potential of the organization. It is for leaders who want to step fully into leadership and play that role well in the transition times we are living through.

We reinvented strategy making to be in full service for leadership teams. For this, the individual motivations and purpose of the leaders, the positioning in the market and society, the business modeling, organization design and change come together into a generic leadership team process.

An Invitation to Train

Living Strategy now invites experienced consultants and facilitators to learn and train in the Living Strategy concept and process. This is for  in-house strategy consultants as well as independent consultants working with client organizations. Living Strategy requires consultants to:

  • Partner with organizations
  • To understand and embrace a different future for organizations
  • Be comfortable walking through different and varied approaches and practices
  • Be “hosts” rather than “training led” in facilitation style
  • Be capable of engaging and working with C-Suite level and demonstrating a mature approach.

The training will offer practice, as a consultant and for leadership teams, to embrace a world-view that includes the older mechanistic world view. We reframe it to perceive the world as an ever-changing, multi- perspective, interdependent, dynamic, living process.

Who are we?

We are a group of experienced facilitators, hosts, change agents and pioneers. We have been practicing concepts like Teal, Next Stage and the Future of Work. We are now bringing our ideas, concepts and practices together in this process called Living Strategy.

How does it work in practice?

Living Strategy combines new and proven processes in organizations. We frame this in a way that the organization’s leadership can make sense for the whole of the business within its environment and add highest value. We walk through every aspect of an organization and deal with any topic a leadership team needs to address, in a logical sequence.

The process allows clients to focus wherever the organization needs to focus on to (re)design and
develop their whole organization in a 2 to 4-day process with the leadership group and then in partnership, with key meetings and milestones as the organization prototypes in the market or operations and integrates learning and insights.

This includes identifying the actual strategy-in-use for the organization, familiarising participants with multiple contexts and multiple stakeholder engagement both internal and external to the organization, business modeling, organizational process, structure and talent, prototyping fast innovation projects, learning organization methods and leadership coaching for organizational change.

Marwa Farouq and Phil McComish energize leading roles in the network Teach For All. A few years ago the leadership team abolished itself. Marwa and Phil were holding the threads together when staff worked more and more autonomously and the work of the organization became increasingly complex. In this interview they share how Teach For All staff is leading itself, how their own practices as former directors was shifting and enabling this journey, and how they  continue to learn and develop their own practices further.
Besides we hear about Teach For All, a global non-profit network of 49 independent partner organisations, placing graduates and young professionals in teaching in schools in order to build collective leadership to ensure educational equity.
