Kaplan-Norton Strategy Execution Boot Camp: Positive Impact and the Execution Premium Process


The four-day Strategy Execution Boot Camp provides a deep dive into Palladium’s Execution Premium Process (XPP) model and Positive Impact approaches, arming you with the necessary knowledge, tools, and foundations needed to help your organization realize results.

This course gives an overview of all the topics a person needs to know to develop and execute a winning strategy from the basics of strategy design to the governance of a robust strategy execution approach. Concepts range from the basic (e.g., conducting a SWOT analysis) to the advanced (e.g., scenario planning for stress-testing strategy) and from time-tested (e.g., Balanced Scorecard) to the innovative (e.g., ecosystem strategy). There is plenty of insight to be found in this exclusive course for anyone involved in setting or executing strategy.

Taught by experienced consultants, this class relies on a mix of (1) theory to ground delegates in relevant principles, (2) examples that help delegates think critically about concept application, and (3) exercises to allow delegates to practice using and adapting key tools. Our faculty can readily share anecdotes for virtually any topic from their own set of practical experiences.
The Kaplan-Norton Strategy Execution Boot Camp is the only training course endorsed by Drs. Kaplan and Norton, co-creators of the Balanced Scorecard and on Harvard Business Publishing’s list of top business thinkers of our time.

Outcomes include:

  • A clear knowledge of the necessary components of effective strategy execution
  • Ability to articulate how sustainable business strategies are good for long-term financial returns
  • Templates and high-level processes
  • Familiarity with a printed binder of hundreds of slides that can be leveraged as the basis for educating your organization
  • Preparedness for taking the exam to become a Certified Graduate
  • Stronger network of relationships with other strategy-minded professionals
