PROGRAMME “STRATEGY AND NEUROSCIENCE”
Carlos Herreros, 2014
1. THE ISSUE OF SUSTAINABILITY
1.1. Perspectives of sustainable development. Social and economic environments.
1.2. Zadek´s Civil Corporation
2. THE SURVIVAL OF THE ORGANIZATION: ULTIMATE GOAL OF ITS EXISTENCE.
2.1. Sustainable competitive advantages?
2.2. Transient advantages
2.3. Competing in “arenas” not in markets
3. MANAGEMENT FADS
3.1 Forced to be stupid by imitation. Jessica Nolan´s experiment

3.5. The success trap. The “halo” effect
3.6. When we frame something as a threat or as an opportunity, what we choose changes substantially. The reframing effect. Kahneman´s experiment.
3.7 How bad practices survive?
4. WHAT IS STRATEGY?
4.1 The term “strategy” should mean a coherent response to an important challenge.
4.2 Even when they coincide in the same individual, leadership and satrategy are not the same.
4.3 Thinking like a strategist. Strategy takes us to the limits of knowledge.It is real, the feeling of ambiguity.
4.4. To generate a strategy we must leave aside the comfort and security of pure deduction and swim in the more troubled waters of induction, of the analogy of judgement, of insight.
4.5 Good strategies don´t come from mechanical tools.
4.6 Mental tools: kernel with 3 components: diagnostic, guiding policy and coherent action.
4.7 Can strategic thinking be taught?. Legitimising dialogues.
4.8 Inquiry and advocacy
4.9 From planning to dialogue
4.10 Developing the repertoire
4.11 Planning as a democratic process.
4.12 Conclusions
5. THE BRAIN AND STRATEGY
5.1 Cognitive inefficacy of strategic processes
5.2. Mintzberg: planning is a product of the left brain. Strategy is a product of the
right brain.
5.3 The brain does not know how to operate with some strategic tools
5.4. Has culture influenced the forgetting of some traditional strategic tools?
5.6. Making visible the evident.
5.7 Organizational attention
5.8 Exploration and exploitation
5.9 Intuition and reason
5.10 To have feelings of our thoughts
5.11 The gap knowing-doing in strategy
5.12 Brain´s friendly environments in strategy
6. GOOD STRATEGIES, BAD STRATEGIES
6.1. A set of coherent actions that create cohesiveness
6.2. Bad strategies don´t analyze obstacles.
6.3 Detecting bad strategies
6.4 Flufff
6.5 Inability to face the challenge
6.6 Mistaken goals and strategies
6.7 Bad strategic goals
6.8 Bad strategy is the avoidance of the hard work of developing a good stratetgy.
6.9 Strategy means focus. Having to put aside some goals in favour of others

10.5 Emotional health is a formo f resilience
10.6. The neuronal regions essental for executive functions are inherently integrative.
10.7 Fragmented minds by tectonic faults
10.8 Current research shows that to change implicit patterns we have to liberate stored memories putting ourselves in strong contact with them, and simultaneously provide a disconfirming evidence.
