This workshop introduces Strategy Deployment using a framework called the ‘X-Matrix' – an A3 format which concisely visualises the alignment of True North, Aspirations, Strategy, Tactics, and Evidence on a single sheet of paper. Participants will explore how to foster an Agile Transformation with Strategy Deployment, a style of organisational improvement that engages the entire workforce in figuring out how a business can survive and thrive. This approach enables a transformation to be viewed as a form of Catchball, a Lean practice with which improvement ideas are developed as they are passed around an organisation.
Participants will learn how this can be achieved with additional Backbriefing and Experiment A3s, which promotes collaboration between teams to experiment and discover solutions. As a result, solutions can emerge from the people closest to the problem, rather than being defined and directed by managers.
