Strategy Circle: ONLINE EXCHANGE

Operationalization of Corporate Strategy

Formulating and planning a corporate strategy is one thing - but how do you successfully implement it? We are launching the Maschinenraum Strategy Circle with the topic "Operationalization of Corporate Strategy" and look forward to expert input from Conrad Wiedeler, Director Strategy, and Frank Schikarski, Director Business Operations and Performance, who will provide an insight into strategy work at Viessmann. We will talk about empirical values and approaches to operationalization and about setting up KPIs for measurement and assessment. The Maschinenraum Strategy Circle is aimed at those responsible for corporate management, strategy and corporate development. We are looking forward to the exchange!
