Masterclass: “Reconciling strategy and execution – Lessons from elite commandos” with Prof. Stephan Schuber
In spite of Afghanistan, there is much to learn from the military about reconciling strategic thinking and acting. It is an open secret that many organisations find it easier to develop new strategies than to actually implement them. Communication is often at fault, and the pandemic-induced rise of the home office does not help. Today, as our world seems to become more unpredictable than ever, even strategic thinking faces serious challenges. This is perhaps the moment to turn to the military, and, more specifically, to some elite commando units such as the U.S. Marines, Royal Marines, SAS, or Navy Seals. They all follow some simple principles that reconcile strategy development and execution in an uncertain and volatile environment. These principles translate easily into managerial practice and can be applied by any type of organisation for the benefit of better strategies, more effective implementation, and higher levels of employee engagement.
