Industry Tactical Planning & Execution

" I found the Industry Tactical Planning and Execution course innovative, interesting, and exciting. Ashan and the team undertook the difficult challenge of redefining and articulating the age-old philosophical problem of good leadership practices and brought them into the 21st century. I feel they hit the nail on the head. Infusing tried and tested intent-baed techniques into the rapidly evolving business world, the course delivered tools, techniques, and resources to enable anyone, to better themself in the tradecraft of management and leadership. Personally, I’ve since delved into the Intent-Based Execution principles, utilizing the attributes of high-performance teams to reduce the decision action cycle. These adjustments have made my team more effective and efficient, driving bottom-up innovation while remaining on task, on schedule, and on budget."
