I am a strategic leadership researcher at Cranfield University - School of Management. We are currently researching:
Strategic Visioning: The Influence of Key Strategic Leadership Factors
Strategic visioning is about developing meaning and purpose for the organisation, and is often cited as a key ingredient of effective leadership and organisational success. Research highlights that how this complex strategic leadership process is undertaken differs between organisations. The focus of this study is to explore how key strategic leadership factors influence strategic visioning.
Currently, I am compiling a database of organisations and their strategic leaders who have experienced strategic visioning. Also, I am conducting interviews to explore the experiences and influencing factors of these executives (CEO or other members of the strategic leadership team). It is worth noting that all interviews are confidential, and that the interviewee / organisation are not publicised.
As a management consultant, you may have facilitated strategic visioning and know of organisations whose strategic leadership team has developed a strategic vision recently (within the last couple of years) - please let me know. Or you may be aware of colleagues who have this type of experience, please advise them of this research and ask them to contact me. Please forward any information you feel that may be useful.
