Are your alliances giving you the edge to compete?

Posted By Kimberly Miller on behalf of ASP, Thursday, May 11, 2017

Heading: Are your alliances giving you the edge to compete?

Worried your current ecosystem of strategic partners and alliances is not giving you the edge you need to compete?

Will that new entrant in the marketplace lead to an unforeseen disruption in your supply chain and customer base?  Is your market moving too fast to stay up with all the changes taking shape?  Are you measuring the success of your strategic alliances consistent with your updated strategy? 

Answers to these strategic issues can be found at the

Association for Strategic Planning's (ASP) 2017 Annual Conference
in Toronto, Canada on May 24 – 26 where
ASP is delighted to offer ASAP the member rate for the conference – a savings of $300!

Leading and Managing Strategy in a Disruptive World is a most fitting theme.

Whether a government agency, publicly traded company, private venture, non-profit or other mission driven organization, we are all facing the challenges of rapid change in turbulent times.  From regional political instability in Eastern Europe and challenges in the Middle East to uncharted political territory in the U.S. and the uncertainty in Europe with Brexit and the E.U., the ripples of these challenges impact all of us.


Uncertainty has become a way of life for all of us and our organizations.  We face rapid advances in and challenges from network effects, internet of things & digital, cyber-security, biotech and healthcare, business model innovation and disruption, just to name a few.

During the conference, we will explore many topics and learn about a range of techniques from futures and scenario planning to agile strategy management to measuring strategic impact and effective execution. 

Participate in pre-conference Master Classes on Wednesday, May 24th and learn from Frank Spencer how to think like a futurist and plan your new alliances before your competition or learn from Peg Anthony on how to leverage systems thinking to plan and react to disruptive market forces.  Hear how "agile" approaches can re-energize the way you think strategically about your alliances.  Hear how best to develop strategic measures of success of your partnerships.

U.S. Cellular, Senior Director, Strategy and Corporate Development - Elliot Rawls
