7th Annual Family Business Forum: Leverage Strategic Thinking to Achieve Your Goals

Join the Family Enterprise Center and your family business peers to learn how to leverage strategic thinking to achieve your family business goals.

While many family firms have strategic plans, those plans often lack a clear expression of an overall competitive strategy that reflects deep strategic thinking. This strategic thinking is critical to achieving ambitious business and family goals, ensuring company profitability, and perpetuating the long-term survival of the business.

This program will help participants begin to identify and commit to an overall competitive strategy. For firms that already have a thoughtful competitive strategy in place, this program will provide an opportunity to go deeper and incorporate new insights into executing that strategy.

This program will:

  • Provide a live case example of a family firm with a powerful competitive strategy
  • Differentiate strategic thinking from strategic planning
  • Emphasize the importance of organizational culture in executing strategy
  • Identify ways strategy in a family enterprise differs from strategy in a non-family firm
  • Outline a simple method to incorporate strategic thinking into an effective strategic plan
