Nordic strategy summit 2016 with Roger Martin on eliminating Corporate Theatre and working with real strategies for real people.
Implement Consulting Group and Roger Martin are on a quest to call the bluff on Corporate Theatre – a common state in many large organisations where managers play carefully choreographed roles fighting for resources and status, but often leave the real strategic issues untouched.
Why is that topic so important for us?
Because when we succumb to just playing “the budget game”, the tough prioritisations never really openly surface. Or when we play “the strategy game”, the most difficult strategic choices are never openly explored. So when Corporate Theatre takes over, conversations simply become less explorative, less choiceful and less engaging – and that puts a brake on agility and innovation.
We want to help pull things in a different direction – a direction where real conversations and choices dominate corporate life.
