Bridging the Strategic Execution Gap: Call for Presenters Open - 2018 ASP Annual Conference

Posted on:

2018 ASP Annual Conference | Call for Presenters

The 2018 Annual Conference program committee is seeking dynamic speakers for 3 or 6 hour pre conference masterclass workshops (Wednesday, May 9, 2018) and 75 minute conference breakout sessions (Thursday, May 10 and Friday, May 11, 2018).

Bridging the Strategic Execution Gap

Across sectors of our disrupted economy, there is growing awareness that, as key leaders formulate strategy for their organizations, a gap in understanding, performance, and execution often occurs for those charged with implementing the initiatives flowing from the strategy. This gap invariably translates into unwanted costs, lost opportunities and the failure to execute.

The 2018 Conference is an opportunity to invite professional colleagues from related disciplines to join with us to establish a better understanding of the strategy execution gap. From this shared understanding, we are looking for new insights, tools and techniques that will help each profession bridge their vector of the gap.

Submission deadline: Friday, October 13 at 5 PM ET
