If projects are the lifeline of strategy, then adaptive leaders are the lifeline of projects. Leading project-based work today requires skills beyond managing tasks and timelines. Developing leaders’ skills is the best way for an organization to ensure higher levels of engagement and project success.
The changing landscape of business has made all industries, from IT to healthcare to retail, more volatile and complex. Increased digitalization and globalization have only increased the challenges – and opportunities – of organizations to react quickly and stay ahead of their competition. This growing need for adaptability has also widened the strategy execution gap.
Coinciding with this increasing complexity, the role of strategic project-based work within organizations has grown exponentially. The global implications are clear: between 2013 and 2027, it is estimated that project-oriented economic activity worldwide will increase by 68%.1
So how can we align the growth of project-based work with the difficulty of executing successful strategic projects?
The Adaptive Strategic Execution Program, created in partnership between TwentyEighty Strategy Execution and Duke Corporate Education, aims to address this project leadership challenge. The program focuses on developing adaptive leaders who are at the core of the fundamental domains of strategy, work, and people.
