27. Strategy Deployment with the X-Matrix

Starring: Karl Scotland (Director & Lean Agile Consultant at Karl Scotland Ltd)
Episode Type: Expert

Strategy deployment is a style of organisational improvement that engages the entire workforce in figuring out how the business can survive and thrive.

This session will introduce strategy deployment using a framework called the X-Matrix - an A3 format that concisely visualises the alignment of aspirations, strategies, tactics and evidence on a single sheet of paper.

With this approach a transformation can be viewed as a form of catchball, a lean process where ideas are passed around an organisation as teams collaborate to experiment and discover solutions.

In this way, solutions emerge from the people closest to the problem, rather than being defined and imposed by management.
