Step 3: Focus Your Learning

Once you have a Strategic Roadmap, you can explore where you want to focus your learning. Is there a component of your strategy that is new for your organization? Are you expanding a strategy you have implemented before to a new population or setting?

You want your learning to be focused on what you most need to know about what you are accomplishing with your strategy so you don’t waste time learning about something that is interesting, but not directly useful. Strategic learning should not be embedded in everything you do . Rather, it should be purposefully undertaken only where it will help you to improve your strategies. It must be useful!

Goal: To identify the most important places to engage in learning and narrow your focus
