The Project Revolution

Successfully implement your strategy in the Project Economy

Recent research shows that 70% of strategies fail and companies fail to meet their goals, most of the time due to poor implementation. Change and transformation fail, because we still organize the implementation as we did 100 years’ ago. Avoid the “strategy implementation gap”, learn how to make change happen in today’s project economy.

The program consists of three online sessions of half-a-day each over a period of three weeks. It is developed in co-operation with and performed by the world’s leading project management expert, award winner and author, Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez.

We all know about the disruptions that are impacting our society and the business world: robotics, artificial intelligence, shared economy, blockchain, big data….

However, there is one extreme disruption that is affecting our world that media and academia have completely missed. For more than 100 years’ organizations have been run and structured in a very similar way: hierarchical; in which power, budgets and resources are divided over departments, the so-called “silos”. Management and management theory was focused on how to run and optimize (efficiency) the business best. Projects were an addition, but hardly ever a priority. Today, we are witnessing the rise of the Project Economy. The so-called gig economy is driven by projects.

The program is designed for Strategy & Innovation Directors, Directors PMO & Portfolio Managers, Senior & Junior Project / Program Managers and Heads of Performance & Quality.

Blitzscaling

The lightning fast path to building massively valuable companies

“Blitzscaling isn’t simply a matter of rapid growth. Every company is obsessed with growth. In any industry, you live and die by the number – user acquisition, margins, growth rate, and so on. Yet growth alone is not blitzscaling. Rather, blitzscaling is prioritizing speed over efficiency in the face of uncertainty.” (Chris Yeh and Reid Hoffman)

The program consists of three online sessions of half-a-day each and is developed in co-operation with Global Scaling Academy and instructed by Chris Yeh, co-author of Blitzscaling and Jeff Abbott.

Why blitzscale? The purpose of blitzscaling is to achieve enduring market leadership in a winner-take-most or winner-take-all market, which occurs when being the first player to reach critical scale brings lasting competitive advantage.

The world we live in is hyper-connected. Competition, customers and talent can come from anywhere in the world. Blitzscaling is the speed at which industries are transforming, and the pace of transformation is accelerating everywhere. The number of companies that fall out of the S&P 500 is accelerating. All companies, in all industries, want to understand what this acceleration clock looks like and what’s driving it in order to learn how to navigate.

The focus of our program:

  • What’s the blitzscaling decision framework and how can it be applied in large organizations?
  • How can I use it to evaluate internal or external innovation or venture scaling opportunities?
  • In this environment of accelerating change, how can the blitzscaling framework inform the management of our current product and service portfolio?
  • How can we build or acquire, and effectively manage, a venture capable of hyper-growth?
  • What’s different about blitzscaling in Europe?

Your benefit:

  • Condensed and intensive online program for senior corporate leaders, – innovation professionals  & – entrepreneurs
  • Cutting-edge insight into the business models, strategies and management techniques that enable hyper-growth
  • Training in understanding and applying these techniques to your organization, plus evaluating and managing new ventures
