On the right, four individuals in a speech bubble pop up from the start of a trail at the base of a mountain. Ahead of them lies a trail with specific points marked all the way up to the top of the mountain, where a yellow flag awaits them. On the left text reads, “Webinar — What is Strategy Activation? Presented by Aric Wood. Wednesday, September 20 2023. 9am PT / 12pm ET.” A yellow tab with an icon of a person pointing to a whiteboard shows that this webinar has no recording.

What is Strategy Activation?

Strategy Activation is the emerging practice of integrating human-centered approaches to organizational change, resulting in greater engagement, alignment, and accelerated movement towards achieving your vision.

During this webinar, attendees learned:

  • The principle reasons strategies fail
  • A more human-centered change approach, the “Activation Curve”
  • The ingredients of a successful strategy activation program
