Piloting Strategy 

5 Leadership Jobs Once Your Plan Is Done


Here’s a change of pace for Heartland donors and friends! On Thursday, February 14, we took a break from public policy and instead discuss how to implement a growth strategy for business. This luncheon  was especially interesting if you own your business (large, medium, or small), are in a leadership position in another business, or hold the reins of a non-profit organization. 


Piloting Strategy educates executive leadership on what to do right after strategic planning, when they are looking to swing from planning into action. It recognizes that  Strategy Implementation carries a unique set of risks that senior executives can manage more effectively if they break the challenge of leading growth into five key jobs. 


Mr. John Delany, President & Founder, Giraffe LLC
John Delany is a prolific innovator of tools, techniques and packaged programs that make strategic planning concepts easy to apply while dramatically reducing the time, money and energy required to develop a strategic growth plan you can actually implement. His most widely used program is Strategy in a Box®, an eight week strategy development program for businesses and non-profits.


In the three plus years it’s been in the market, Strategy in a Box® has been used to facilitate more than three hundred strategic growth plans, from start-ups to entities with more than $6.5B in revenue. (See Mr. Delany facilitating the program at www.giraffellc.net. Piloting Strategy focuses on how to transition from strategic planning to strategic re-building of a business or non-profit so it executes what’s in the plan.
