Session 1621 -
Inclusive Strategizing – Practical Insights From AXA, Wikimedia and IBM

Over the last few years, strategy researchers have witnessed a new trend in the practice of strategy development towards more openness – both in terms of increasing transparency about the strategy process and in terms of including a wider range of actors in the formulation of strategy. While collecting data in various organizations, researchers have observed how differently organizations approach and implement ‘Open Strategy’ in practice. Therefore, we convene a practitioner panel discussion around inclusive strategizing to gain practical insights into three different ‘Open Strategy’ cases. The panelists consist of influential practitioners who have experience in inclusive strategizing and can provide practical insights into heterogenous ‘Open Strategy’ cases in terms of tools, selected actors and process management.
