The world is changing rapidly and, across all industries, organisations are struggling to keep up, in part due to their lack of digital transformation. Fortunately, there are events designed to support strategy leaders’ success in this area, in particular Strategy Execution Consortiums. Here are 7 reasons you need to attend one in 2019.
Written by: Alan Dix, Strategy Execution Evangelist
On average, industries are less than 40 per cent digitalised. Despite the hype and relatively deep penetration of digital technologies in media, retail, and high tech, most sectors are rushing to catch up. The pressure to digitalise will grow significantly over the next few years as the Fourth Industrial Revolution gathers pace.
Introducing i-nexus’ Strategy Execution Consortium events
The Strategy Execution Consortium embraces this, in a series of events that celebrate strategy execution digitalisation and ensures strategy best practice for the digital age.
The Strategy Execution Consortium events are more than just two days of learning, networking, and inspiration.
These are the seven reasons why the events are a must-attend for every strategy leader.
Seven benefits of attending this strategy event
1. Become a strategy success story
Follow in the footsteps of global organisations such as Ingersoll Rand, Molex, Transat and Danaher. As highlighted by these organisations, there are many factors that influence a strategy’s success. There’s a need to pivot quickly, responding to results and external pressure.
Organisation-wide, complex strategies remain challenging to execute, with two core, common themes being the difficulty of knowing the impact of interconnected changes, and the proliferation of firmwide initiatives which are making coordination difficult.

The Strategy Execution Consortium luminates the challenges, trends, techniques and solutions to help strategy leaders like yourself grapple with the obstacles blocking your way, clearing the path to success.
2. A range of learning options
Understanding the many factors impacting your strategy execution takes time. At the Strategy Execution Consortium events, you get access to free workshops, case studies, panels and industry insiders. The events are designed for all learning styles, ensuring that you are exposed to the topics which are shaping global organisations’ success.

3. Get much-needed headspace for critical thinking
The Strategy Execution Consortiums give you the opportunity to step back from your day-to-day responsibilities, providing the space you need to think about how to really move the needle on your strategy execution.
Away from the usual operational distractions of your workday, you will gain the headspace needed to take a fresh look at your strategy execution, business transformation, daily management and Lean efforts.
4. Lively debate to spark lightbulb moments
You won’t be alone in this endeavour.
The events also provide a great opportunity to network with your peers, those grappling with the same strategy and digital transformation challenges you face each day. These are the people who may have come up with a solution for the exact issue you’re facing right now.
Importantly, you’ll meet people who feel just as passionate as you about strategy execution.
This will help you to learn new approaches to your strategy execution. Lively debate and collaboration with your peers will give you solutions to your current challenges, spark ideas, foster innovation, and help you build a strong network of strategy leaders.
