Morning Pre-Conference Masterclass: Strategic Transformation

The Board & CEO’s Role in Strategically Transforming Your Organisation

Morning Masterclass (9.00AM – 12.30PM, 9 August 2018)

For boards, chief executive officers and executives of community businesses (NFPs) the move to the customer-driven, competitive marketplace is a radical departure from their known industry/sector context, to which they and their organisations were perfectly adapted.

This masterclass will explore the roles and responsibilities the board, chief executive officer and executives  play in the strategic transformation of their organisation.

Planning and executing a strategic transition of one’s organisation, a re-engineering of the business model and a reinvention of the culture is a very significant and complex project that many leaders have never undertaken, but need to undertake.
Coming to grips with the realities and practicalities of such a project can be daunting, to say the least.

In the new customer-driven, competitive marketplace an increasing number of boards, along with their chief executive officers and executives, are also coming to recognise the pragmatic reality that “Customer is King, Cashflow is Queen”.

As this old adage portrays, when it comes to cashflow-centric governance, boards have to go way beyond just having an annual budget or past monthly reports…one’s new business model must be aligned to a robust financial model. In turn, the financial model should provide the basis of projected cashflow, profit and loss and balance sheet statements against the key drivers and metrics of the business.

Join Michael Goldsworthy, Principal Consultant, Australian Strategic Services for an engaging, intensely practical and interactive Master Class focused on The Boards’ & Chief Executive Officers’ Governance Roles & Responsibilities, Realities & Practicalities Of Strategically Transforming Their Organisation.

In this highly practical masterclass you will:

  • consider the strategic and organisational impacts and implications, opportunities and ideas of the new customer-driven, competitive marketplace
  • understand the board’s, chief executive officer’s and executives’ leadership roles and responsibilities
  • reflect on the typical strategic transformation project principles and practices, processes, documents and tools
  • discuss the relationship between a contemporary business model and a robust financial model
  • review and discuss specific strategic transformational case studies, their project critical success factors, learnings and reflections
  • determine the key drivers, parameters and processes required to design, plan and successfully executive your own strategic organisational transformation project
    review strategic transformation project documents, tools and templates.
