2. The Innovation Racing Line: Strategic Planning Canvas
Strategic planning to navigate the future and deal with competing innovation demands.
Preparation for innovation requires strategic project planning and implementation. This means getting from a start point to the finish line in the most efficient and effective way possible. To do this requires an ability to read and navigate a path that will enable maximum speed, but also to anticipate and mitigate risks.
The Innovation Racing Line Strategic Planning Canvas is a very practical session that uses the uniquely developed Dynamic Polar Positioning tool (DPoP) to ensure leaders and teams can build the best strategy through planning the most effective route. The most efficient path through any corner is referred to as the “racing line.”
Teams learn how to map out a sustainable path, breaking the strategy down into distinct sections (including anticipating the challenging curves), and identifying the best ‘racing line’ and crew (who does what on the team) to navigate the chosen path successfully. By understanding the tension of the ‘Paradoxical Innovation Orientations’, and ambidextrous approaches to leadership, these models and tools can help leaders learn to communicate more effectively & set an effective strategy / road map.
