Short Course: Strategic Doing: Ten Skills for Agile Leadership

September 17, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

This short course will run concurrently with the Tues. morning UIDP Academy Workshops. 

University-industry collaborations can offer many benefits. However, they are not without risk. What would it look like if we had an open-source “operating system” to reduce these risks and increase the productivity of our collaborations? What if we had a shared discipline to speed the formation of collaborations, move them quickly toward measurable outcomes, and make adjustments along the way. Developed by Ed Morrison and incubated at Purdue since 2005, Strategic Doing fills this gap and this open-source discipline is now offered through a national network of universities. Participants in this interactive workshop will be introduced to Strategic Doing through a simulation game, specifically designed for UIDP members, and will walk you through the process of developing a strategic action plan to guide new collaborations.

Participants will receive the newly released book “Strategic Doing: Ten Skills for Agile Leadership”.

    UIDP members say our conferences are a primary avenue to share approaches, collaborate while establishing important connections, and solve contemporary partnership challenges. UIDP relies on member organizations to provide host facilities and support in-person conferences. Most conference sites are secured years in advance.
