Host: D2N2 Growth Hub
Location: Action Planning Workshop
Date: Thursday, 15th April 2021 at 10.00am - 1.00pm
Some organisations focus on exploiting their current products and services and strive for excellence in their execution. Or they have a focus on exploring new opportunities - creating, delivering and capturing value through an innovation culture and new business models.
Some organisations do both. The ambidextrous organisation is one where explore and exploit co-exist, they compete where efficiency, control, and incremental improvement are prized and to compete in new technologies and markets where flexibility, autonomy, and experimentation might be needed. Do you do both?
This workshop is aimed at business owners and leaders with responsibilities for teams who create strategies and deliver results. It’s delivered in a straightforward way that any leader and manager can access; they’ll learn to use tools and approaches that will support change at an organisational level, should they choose.
This workshop is aimed at SMEs. Please note that preference will be given to businesses based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
Recognising the leadership challenge – explore and exploit
Understanding the Ambidextrous organisation
Identifying the elements that characterise exploit and explore
Understanding the opportunities and threats associated with each approach
Alternative approaches for adoption of an ambidextrous strategy

After attending this workshop, you will:

Identify the strengths and weaknesses of your current business approach

Create a roadmap for effective change in the adoption of a more ambidextrous approach
