182 Questions About Digital Execution


Robin Speculand, Founder and CEO of Bridges Business Consultancy Int

Yesterday’s success no longer guarantees tomorrow’s results. The way business operates is being dramatically transformed. To compete in this highly complex and competitive market, you must understand how to develop and execute your strategy in a digital world. It’s not about having a digital strategy; it’s about having a strategy for the digital world. The workshop explains this challenge and more while addressing how digital execution differs from traditional strategy execution.

In this Digital Execution Masterclass, you’ll be introduced to two frameworks: The Ticking Clock and The Implementation Compass.

The Ticking Clock is one of the few models available that explains how to transform your business to being digital-driven. The 11 steps—from crafting a digital vision to reporting digital measures to your Board and nine steps between—provide the framework to guide your organization. The Implementation Compass is Bridges’ propriety framework that explains the eight areas required for excellence in execution.

This Masterclass also includes Digital Maturity Model and a case study on DBS Bank. In 2018, it was named the best digital bank in the world. This case study was written by Robin Speculand, the course facilitator, who is also writing a book on DBS’s transformation story.


Six Ingredients for Building
Digitally Enabled Business Ecosystems


Dr. Mark Greeven, Professor of Innovation and Strategy at IMD Business School

Traditional ways of organizing into hierarchically managed and process-controlled systems are no longer the best way to organize. Business ecosystems are boundaryless organizations of interdependent businesses, enabled by modularity, not hierarchically managed, with customer-centric offerings across industries. While the advantages of customer proximity, responsiveness, rapid decision-making, and innovation are clear, it is often a challenge to build a digitally-enabled business ecosystem—especially if you are not an internet-based business. In this masterclass, we discover the six ingredients for building a healthy, sustainable, digitally-enabled business ecosystem.

Strategy Execution Best Practices

Lessons from Government and its Implications for All Sectors


James Stockmal, President of the Association for Strategic Planning (ASP)
Doug Maris,
Vice President of Operations at LBL Strategies

We all know the routine: public sector leaders periodically meet to formulate strategy; then, with the best of intentions, they ask their business units, functional teams and PMOs to work together to execute those initiatives. Unfortunately, all too often a gap in understanding and performance occurs for those charged with implementing the initiatives flowing from the strategy. This gap in understanding translates into unwanted costs, lost opportunities and ultimately failure to execute. When a failure at execution occurs, the lost value resulting is highly significant, especially in the public sector.

In early 2019 LBL Strategies in conjunction with the Association for Strategic Planning, and the George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership conducted a study on strategy execution challenges in the Government/Public Sector. In this masterclass, we will present main findings from this survey and discuss its implications for all sectors. This masterclass will also introduce summary and comparison of various trending popular strategy execution models. Strategy execution best practices and practical tools will be provided to help leaders drive successful strategy execution in a complex and uncertain environment.

  • Principle #1: Create a culture of engagement, transparency and servant leadership

  • Principle #2: Measure what matters most

  • Principle #3: Prioritize your actions

  • Principle #4: Divide strategic plan into smaller chunks

  • Principle #5: Work in rapid iterations to build an agile cadence 

  • Principle #6: Monitor performance and make frequent midcourse corrections

Seeing What Isn’t There

A Leaders' Guide to Creating Change in a Complex World


Bruce LaRue, Ph.D., Co-founder and President of Chambers Bay Institute

This action-learning workshop is designed for leaders who want to learn to visualize a future yet to be born while channeling the collective energy of others to make it a reality. Change has become so pervasive that, in order to simply survive, we must learn to leverage change to our advantage by building organizations that are more adaptive, agile, creative, and innovative. Improving your change strategy by becoming an Integrator Leader is therefore not only a matter of survival, but key to thriving in an increasingly volatile and uncertain world. You will learn proven methods for how to lead strategic change through vivid examples from Dr. LaRue’s vast reservoir of experience advising leaders within some of the most complex organizations in the world today.

The objectives of this masterclass:

  • Learn how to become an Integrator Leader: learn to see in new ways, break out of the Prison of the Known, create change rather than react to it, define your vision and purpose.

  • Learn to Lead Change: learn to lead change using the Change Integrator model, develop action plan as a bridge to your vision, realign structures and processes with your mission, prepare for growth while remaining flexible in the face of change.

  • Build Self Organizing Teams: learn the Mini-Town Hall process, develop Action Teams for design and deployment of your change initiative, and learn to sustain success by creating an innovative culture that attracts, develops, and retains top talent.
