Why Winning Leadership With Networked Strategy?


The world is increasingly networked, and the connections these networks foster are radically transforming business, making it richer as well as more turbulent. Networked Strategy is rooted in the premise that it’s time to stop thinking in linear terms about value chains and start thinking about systems of value.

By extension, disruptive digital business models, flattened organisations and the ongoing shift to team-based work practices call for a new kind of leader to step up — one who is capable of not only detecting ambiguous threats and opportunities on the periphery of their business, but also proactively transforming their workforce as a strategic response to disruption. Since 2013, the number of unicorns has ballooned from 39 to more than 800, and what all of these companies demonstrate is the paramount importance of leveraging Networked Strategy: a framework for bridging traditional boundaries, focusing on multiple value opportunities and co-creating value with others.

This six-week online programme from the world’s top-ranked university — home to the Oxford Networked Strategy Lab — empowers participants to dramatically kickstart their Networked Strategy by combining and harnessing the power of collaboration and experimentation. The programme will inculcate executives, entrepreneurs and other corporate innovators with breakthrough strategic thinking that will help them anticipate disruption, embrace complexity, identify growth opportunities amidst great uncertainty and ultimately lead systemic transformation.

 

Is This Programme Right for You?

 

The programme is designed for C-suite executives responsible for steering the future direction of their organisation, who are looking to gain deeper insight into the global business landscape and how to lead their organisation through disruption.

Entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs looking to build a strategic framework for innovation, as well as functional managers responsible for strategy, and consultants and analysts working on strategy teams also stand to benefit greatly from the programme.

What You Will Learn


  • Shake off traditional approaches to strategy to think innovatively in terms of ecosystems, partnerships and co-created value.
  • Transcend the challenges of the global business environment to create new opportunities for growth.
  • Become more adaptive by achieving the organisational agility necessary for success in the current uncertain global business landscape.
  • Lead systemic transformation by designing systems to co-create different types of value and benefits for all stakeholders.

Future dates for this programme are to be confirmed.
