JOIN US IN RETHINKING THE WAY WE IMPLEMENT STRATEGY

Old-fashioned, manually tracked implementation methods result in three out of four strategies failing to reach their goals. That’s $3 million wasted every minute. The time has come to end years of stagnation in the leadership suite.

DecideAct, pioneer in groundbreaking technology for strategic implementation, is the force behind this Bold Strategy Summit. Some of the world’s greatest strategy leaders and influencers will be on stage. 

Iceland, polestar of bold thinking, is famous for transforming its 2008 financial crisis into a now-thriving economy. This unprecedented success is due largely to successful strategy implementation.

If you are an executive or strategy consultant working at the corporate level, we would love to see you in Reykjavik. The summit will begin on May 27, with masterclasses held on May 28, 2019.
