For large enterprises, the ability to deliver value early and often is necessary, but not sufficient. Without clear and transparent alignment to a strategy, the organisation might still end up being very busy, getting better at delivering more and more of the wrong thing, and not achieving any positive results. This is hard, because knowing what the right strategy should be can also be a challenge in today's complex world.
Strategy Deployment is a technique which engages the whole organisation in working together to deliver the right thing, by treating strategy as a hypothesis which is deployed to teams. Teams then run experiments and create feedback which can be used to assess how well the strategy is working.
This talk will introduce the basic concepts of Strategy Deployment, showing how it can be used to move away from an arbitrary or analytical decreeing of solutions to teams down an organisation, towards a disciplined collaboration between teams across an organisation, designing and evolving their work, knowing how is correlates to strategy, how it contributes to improvements, and what results those improvements should lead to.
