Strategic Doing and CONNECTS – Doing More Together

February 22, 2023

In today’s world, collaboration is essential to meet the complex challenges we face. This requires collaboration of multiple stakeholders and experts at different levels and in different configurations. Successful collaboration needs enabling technologies such as the CONNECTS platform and collaborative capabilities such as Strategic Doing.

Strategic Doing teaches people how to form collaborations quickly, move them toward measurable outcomes and make adjustments along the way. Strategic Doing has developed over more than two decades of work with people trying to strengthen their organizations, communities, and regions. The Strategic Doing Institute, based in the University of North Alabama, USA has trained more than 2000 practitioners from around the world.

In October 2022, the Strategic Doing Practitioners Learners Community was launched on CONNECTS. Inside the community we run weekly Strategic Doing Talks, hosted by Ed Morrison – founder and director of the Strategic Doing Institute. Each week Ed has a conversation with one of the current Strategic Doing Practitioners, workshop leaders and fellows about their experiences in applying Strategic Doing in their organisations and communities. For upcoming talks click on the link.

Starting on the 31St of January Ed Morrison will be delivering a series of Strategic Doing Masterclasses on CONNECTS to provide participants with practical skills for designing and guiding ecosystems. In each Masterclass Ed will be focussing on a particular type of complex challenge in a particular type of organisation, industry, or community. To participate click on the link.
