Some might have launched strategic initiatives which they wish to work on in the Lab, or are planning to launch such initiatives and want to use the Lab as a test bed. Others might want to stress-test their existing strategy or business design, by learning how to map systems, explore changing futures and their system implications, and redesign strategies for a network world, where disruptions and blurring industry fields are commonplace.
Oxford Networked Strategy Lab
- 5 days
- Short programme
About the programme
Use systems and design thinking to explore how to implement networked strategy.
This Lab is designed as a blended learning workshop for teams of five, from non-competing companies, to use design thinking and methodology to explore how to implement networked strategy.
You will use systems thinking and collaborative strategy to better understand and meet opportunities and threats in the new networked world. You will work in company teams to develop and share thinking on your business transformation initiative.
The Lab will be facilitated by our world-class faculty – from within both strategy and inspiring re-framing fields such as biology, anthropology and design – alongside guest speakers from prominent organisations which have deployed systems thinking and collaborative strategy approaches to reshape their fields.
The Lab is strictly confidential and firms will be selected to ensure no competitors are present.
