Ten Strategic Execution Trends for 2015

Project teams will deliberate less and plan in real-time more. Companies will recognize a cultural difference as a point of strength, rather than a source of confusion. And, more than ever, IT will emerge as a leading influence on the critical decisions that drive organizational success. These and other developments are among the following top 10 "strategic execution trends for 2015," as adapted from a list compiled by IPS Learning. Above all, the trends speak to the increasing need-for-speed mindset that CIOs and other executives must adapt to keep up with the pace of technology and market changes. "As business continues to accelerate, flexibility and speed of strategic execution become ever more important," says Tim Wasserman, chief learning officer of IPS Learning and program director of the Stanford Advanced Project Management (SAPM) program. "Smart, high-performing organizations have already structured themselves to react more quickly to external and internal shifts. They view the future as a possibility, change as an opportunity and their strategy as the tool to get them there." IPS Learning partners with a variety of academic institutions, associations and organizations, including the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD), to advise organizations on how to achieve better growth and smarter innovation.
