Playing to Win: How Strategy Really Works
Learn a proven approach to strategy that is used by leading organizations around the world.
Explore a winning strategy framework.
Build your strategy skills in this intensive, hands-on workshop. Strategy is about choice – explicitly choosing what you will do and not do to win with customers and against your competition. The Playing to Win framework uses five questions that help you drill down to create and test a new business strategy.

Execution is critical for your winning strategy. Follow through by taking advantage of our discount bundle of Playing to Win: How Strategy Really Works and Integrative Thinking for Leaders.
The Playing to Win one-day workshop provides you with hands-on experience creating a strategy and learning a proven approach to strategy used by leading organizations around the world. Add our Integrative Thinking for Leaders one-day program and you also receive a proven management system, including tools and processes to execute that strategy.
These two workshops run consecutively this fall, making it easier for you to benefit from more than one workshop. Each program on its own will provide you with tools and insights for building or executing a successful strategy, but by combining the two, you’ll benefit from a more robust set of tools, frameworks and skills to drive your strategy.
