On the second day of FEI Vienna, we hosted the action-packed workshop “Strategy Tools – in action” with 40+ global innovators and executives. Intense, fast-paced and incredibly exciting day in Vienna.
Before kicking off our workshop we attended Holger Nils Pohl’s workshop in visual strategy thinking. Holger is our friend, advisory board member and visual genius. He thought us some great new visual strategy tools witch is perfect for mapping out the strategic future for a company. The timing was perfect because many of the speakers on the first day talked about the importance of creating a strategic map. It also complements our Strategy Tools for the Next Generation. Thanks!

Strategy Tools – In Action
After lunch we were ready to start our workshop “Strategy Tools – In action”. One of the key challenges we help our clients tackle, is developing new more innovative strategies. A part of our mission is to change how the world works on strategy and innovation. Hosting workshops like this to teach global brands and innovation managers how to use our strategy and innovation tools is a big step on the way. We had participants including Lego, Aribus, Bayer Business Service, Kuwait Oil Company, European Patent Office and Louis Vuitton. Around the tables in Vienna we heard a lot of good discussions on why we need new strategy and innovation tools.
See the presentation, photos, graphic recordings and feedback from our workshop in Vienna.
The attendees worked in groups with strategy tools like the “strategic innovation canvas“, “three levels of business models” and “transformation architecture“. The tool “transformation architecture” was launched on our recent Strategy Summit in Stavanger. This tool is great for mapping out the architecture of strategy in any company.
While many of our oil and gas clients back in Norway are currently struggling with industry shifts, several of our workshop participants in Vienna brought up similar challenges when working on our tools. Many stated that it wasn’t a lack of ideas that had put them in a slow-moving situation, but old tools and poor processes internally.
“Excellent session. This is what I came to Vienna for”
