CWDC hosts Strategic Doing training for public partners.

October 18, 2019 - The CWDC hosted a Strategic Doing training on Oct. 15-17 as part of the 2019 CWDC Technical Assistance Modules. Strategic Doing is a methodology that helps groups identify desired strategic outcomes, develop a path to reaching those outcomes, and quickly move into implementation. The Strategic Doing methodology can increase the impact of Colorado Talent Development Network initiatives when implemented across work groups. 

Twenty participants joined the training this week, which was led by Elizabeth Nilson with the Purdue Agile Strategy Lab and Geniphyr Ponce-Pore with the CSU Office of Engagement. Each of the twenty attendees lead a strategic team in Colorado, such as a sector partnership or workforce development board.

Throughout the three days participants were trained in the Strategic Doing methodology and how to use it in their own teams. Attendees learned about the 10 Rules of Strategic Doing, participated in small group simulations of the practice, and learned strategies for quickly forming collaborations and moving them toward measurable outcomes.

The CWDC would like to thank everyone who participated and helped to make the training a success. We are looking forward to sharing how these various leaders are implementing Strategic Doing in their teams and increasing their impact on Colorado’s Talent Development Network.
