1 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Files mounted on the Making Strategy Sage web site Six sets of PowerPoint slides: Introduction to Making Strategy Strategy as the Prioritisation and Management of Key Issues Strategy as Purpose: Agreeing Goals and Aspirations for the Organisation Strategy as Competitive advantage Closure These slides are intended only as a supplement to the book and do not represent a complete picture of the theory, concepts, or practice that lie behind the approach to strategy. They provide some further examples and pick out some main themes. They have been designed so that they can be modified and added to. However, the copyright of the material lies with the authors. Four sets of PowerPoint slides that list the tasks for each of the four forums. These are directly from the book and save retyping them if required. A 2-page quick guide to the use of Decision Explorer. This guide provides the majority of the ‘hot-key’ instructions that used extensively during the Making Strategy process. Videos introducing the use of Decision Explorer in the issue management forum. This provides a quick way of ‘getting the hang’ of using the software at a basic level.

2 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Group Explorer There is also available a Group Support System that allows participants to enter statements and links directly in to a publicly displayed Decision Explorer model. The system also allows for the rating of statements, and the indication of preferences about, for example, options to focus on, undesirable options, leverage on goals, etc. The significant benefits of the system are higher productivity, anonymity when appropriate, the ability to monitor development consensus, and facilitator monitoring of levels of participation and type of participation. The system has been used extensively over the past 10 years by a number of Business Schools, managers, and consultants. It has been used with top management teams of MNC’s as well as with pressure groups. The system requires the purchase of the Group Explorer software from Ackermann&Eden at Strathclyde Business School, a full copy of Decision Explorer, Windows Server, and 2 laptop computers (one running Windows Server and the other Windows 7).

4 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Please note, these slides are designed to be used in addition to the book: Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success. by Ackermann & Eden, Sage, 2011  They are not designed to be used in a ‘stand-alone’ manner, or to replicate theory and practice presented in the book.  The assignment design represents one possibility for a 20 credit MBA course (thus each of the 4 parts represents approx 5 credits + Closure).

5 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Strategic Management is about agreeing which stakeholders to practically focus energy, cash, effort, emotion

6 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Making Strategy in 4x~3hr workshops (2 days)…. Or single half day workshops  Workshop 1 – morning Strategy as the Prioritisation and Management of Key Issues Statement of Strategic Intent  Workshop 2 – afternoon Strategy as Purpose: Agreeing Goals and Aspirations for the Organisation Statement of Strategic Intent  Workshop 3 – morning Strategy as Competitive advantage Statement of Strategic Intent  Workshop 4 – afternoon Strategy as Stakeholder Management Statement of Strategic Intent  DELIVERABLE OVERALL: Statement of strategic intent (SSI) encompassing: issue management, purpose, competitive advantage, stakeholder management

8 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Stakeholder Analysis and Management “... stakeholder analysis has a utilitarian aim; that of identifying stakeholders who will, or can be persuaded to, support actively the strategy of the organization. Organisations will also need to be concerned with those who will seek to sabotage the successful management of the strategy Refer to Chapter 9

9 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Why pay attention to stakeholders?  Pragmatically because it: Helps with the competing demands being made on organizations Recognises and enables management of the interactions that exist between stakeholders Acknowledges the influence both Internal and External stakeholders can have Increases the likelihood of change and realisation of aspirations  There is also a considerable body of stakeholder literature

10 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Some Considerations (from the literature) for Successful Stakeholder Management  Stakeholder management should: Apply clear and useful definitions of stakeholders that attend to the stakeholder’s uniqueness Identify the relative significance of stakeholders Manage multiple and interdependent interactions between stakeholders and potential stakeholders Determine how to intervene, when appropriate to develop or alter the bases of individual stakeholder significance Refer to Chapter 9

11 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Range of complimentary techniques Power vs. Interest grid “Sanctions/Interests” Stakeholder Management Web Actor Influence network maps Stakeholder role think Stakeholder dynamics Stakeholder Analysis Refer to p

12 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Power-Interest Grid “Subjects”“Players” “Crowd” “Leaders and Context setters” Power Interest (stake) Power to affect what happens (they can take actions that will affect the outcomes of strategy) Stake in the situation (they like some possible outcomes better than others) Refer to p , 256

13 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Refer to p257

14 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 Developing the Power-Interest Grid  Analysis Surface a wide range of stakeholders which can be structured on the grid – not untypical to have 100+ in public sector organisations Dis-aggregate the stakeholders to a ‘management’ level Separate influencers (power) from stakeholders (interest) – different options Consider the disposition of stakeholders Categorise stakeholders (e.g. internal, external, media, government etc)  Management Determines which players must be considered - prioritisation Reveals instability in interest Highlights behaviour to be terminated/avoided, coalitions to be encourage, stakeholders to be ‘bought in’ Suggests new options Refer to p , 256

15 © Colin Eden and Fran Ackermann: Lecture Notes For Making Strategy: Mapping Out Strategic Success, Sage, 2011 The Power Interest Grid with stakeholders positioned Subjects Players Crowd Leaders or Context Setters Power Interest stakeholder Note: dotted arrows represent the extent and nature of instability and the solid arrows suggest the direction of likely management of the power or interest of stakeholders stakeholder Potential stakeholder Potential stakeholder Potential stakeholder Potential stakeholder Potential stakeholder Potential stakeholder Potential stakeholder Potential stakeholder Refer to p261 for an example
