Creating Value in a Digital Economy  (Technology)
In previous eras, innovations were largely designed to support large organizations’ internal processes and help them operate more efficiently. But with digital innovations, innovators are displacing legacy organizations. As digitization and automation transform the economy, well-resourced incumbents are losing out to upstarts.
Digital innovators—like Amazon and Uber and Tesla—are winning because in the digital economy, value is created differently. Digital relationships provide data that reaches farther into a customer’s world than into those of competitors. This data makes possible new relationships with customers and a new level of intimacy, allowing firms to personalize offerings. The digital economy is resulting in new types of value chains, partnerships, and ecosystems.
On February 22, Maxwell Wessel, coauthor of the HBR article “The Problem with Legacy Ecosystems,” will explain how incumbents are constrained by their established value chains and how industrial-era companies must change.

3 Keys to Successful Program Management  (Management / Leadership)

In this webcast, you will discover the tools to initiate a program successfully in a manner that will enable benefits establishment, realization management, and analysis prior to and during execution. We will show you how to set realistic objectives and performance measures. The three key tools for program success we will discuss in this webcast are: ..... Creating a program roadmap ..... Identifying what is needed for organizational strategy and program alignment ..... Creating an environmental assessment.
These skills are only three key tools for program success, to be used within an entire program lifecycle, but can serve as a foundation for success.
The use of these tools will vary based on the type and complexity of the program; effective and strategic program management can often depend on how well these foundational elements are executed to ensure appropriate program definition, benefits delivery, and closure.

Effective Strategic Planning Part 2: Plan Development  (Nonprofit / Community)
Strategic planning has a dicey reputation for any number of reasons:   1) it often is tedious and time-consuming;   2) the issues it identifies are either obvious or not critical to the mission (or both);   3) the actions it specifies are vague and unmeasurable;   4) it is ignored once the plan is written (or the written plan is never quite finished);   5) it simply adds tasks to an already over-stretched staff;   6) it has no results visible to stakeholders;   7) it does not advance your mission.
These problems are not inherent to strategic planning; they are signs that it has been done badly. This webinar will look at how a nonprofit can infuse its mission into the daily activity of staff and board through a straightforward, rigorous, and even morale-building process. It will offer both a structure and tools for planning.
