Pose this question to your coworkers: Which is harder, developing a strategy or executing it successfully? Though strategic planning gets more attention, nearly every manager I talk to agrees that executing on a strategy once its developed is the more challenging task. While graduate programs often prepare students to develop strategies, formal training often does little to prepare students to manage the execution of the complex projects and programs we find in the real world.

This training will introduce attendees to several different frameworks intended to help organizations execute on critical goals.  We will compare and contrast these approaches and identify which approach might be best for your organization. 

Event Description
Learning Objectives

1. Increase the understanding of the "metric" trap organizations in the social sector fall into all too often. 

2. Explore and compare several different approaches organizations can use to engage with data more meaningfully. Specifically

  • The Four Disciplines of Execution (4DX)

  • Objectives and Key Results (OKRs)

  • Emergent Learning (EL)

3. Identify links between these frameworks for performance management and common nonprofit monitoring & evaluation practices.

4. Reflect on how attendees might leverage knowledge of these approaches in their own organizations.


Nonprofit, government, and philanthropic executives, and managers across all teams
