Communication Agility

Today most organizations are sophisticated, fluid environments, and to succeed within them communication professionals must be both disciplined and flexible. This seminar covers how to bring agility to workflow and relationships, including strong situational awareness, intelligent editorial screens and service levels, and workflow management that balances planned and unplanned work.

In the Communication Agility Seminar, Alan Nelson, managing partner and co-head of CRA’s Strategic Communication Practice, will lead a developmental discussion across six areas:

  • What it Means to Be Agile
  • Knowing Everything Through Strong Networks
  • Tracking Issues, Opportunities, and Events
  • Assigning Strategic Service Levels
  • Managing Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, and Annual Work
  • Improving Through Feedback

CRA Partners and Managing Directors with a minimum of 10 years advisory experience in Fortune 50 organizations lead each Seminar, and Seminars will typically include a variety of other CRA staff and clients who lend texture to the discussion. The agenda spans one and one-half days, with the content intentionally limited to six discussions – the goal is to engage a smaller number of more meaningful issues with depth. While individual Seminars can vary, a typical agenda is:

Thursday, November 21

  • 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. | Content sessions with catered lunch
  • 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. | Break
  • 7:00 p.m. | Group dinner

Friday, November 22

  • 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. | Content
  • 12:00 p.m. | Lunch-to-go and departures
