Nov. 7, 2013: 'Strategic Doing: Transform Thinking Into Action'

by Michelle Saport  |   


Ed Morrison and Peggy Hosea work with community leaders from Flint, Mich., on rebuilding the city's civic economy using Strategic Doing.

Thursday, Nov. 7, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Diplomacy Building, Room 301 (4500 Diplomacy Dr.)

Strategic Doing enables people in loosely joined, open networks to think and act strategically. Instead of broad visions, they pursue measurable strategic outcomes. Instead of focusing on problems and deficits, they define new opportunities by connecting their assets. Instead of looking for a visionary leader, they recognize that leadership in open networks is a shared responsibility.

Join Ed Morrison, former consultant and current Economic Policy Advisor at the Purdue Center for Regional Development, for this one-day, hands-on, teamwork-based, info-packed training on Strategic Doing.

Created by Morrison himself, Strategic Doing is a new, network-based model for economic and workforce development emphasizing the strategic value of focused collaboration and open innovation in today's global economy. Learn how to implement new methods of open participation and leadership guidance to develop extremely complex projects quickly by harnessing the collective wisdom and energies of an open community.

Invite a friend or coworker, and let's start transforming thinking into action-together!

Registration is $100 per person. Register online here. For more information, please contact Melissa Houston at (907) 786-5423 or

There will also be a session in Fairbanks on Nov. 8. Both sessions are sponsored by UAF's Cooperative Extension Service and the UA Center for Economic Development.
