Strategic Doing is "owned" by the Strategic Doing Institute, a nonprofit organization, but it "lives" through the work of a network of practitioners and institutions. Prior to July 2020, a set of official "affiliate" universities were the sole providers of the 2.5 day training "Strategic Doing 301: Leading Complex Collaborations". While this is no longer the case - the training can be offered by any Strategic Doing Fellow - the institutions profiled below continue to have a corps of professionals with experience using Strategic Doing and guiding others in its use, and offer support and/or training to interested organizations and individuals.
Purdue University/Purdue Agile Strategy Lab: The original Lab has worked with more than 1,500 people to help them apply the principles of agile strategy to a wide range of challenges, including economic development, corporate strategy, nonprofit leadership, higher education reform, K-12 education, workforce planning, organizing student teams, and scientific research direction.

University of North Alabama: The second Agile Strategy Lab was founded at UNA in January 2019 under the leadership of director Ed Morrison, who developed Strategic Doing and continues to lead its refinement and use. The University of North Alabama (UNA)’s Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship offers Strategic Doing workshops and practitioner training to private and public sector organizations. UNA is a sponsor of Shoals Shift. a movement with the goal of expanding the area’s digital technology cluster and building a Tech Hub. The Shoals Shift movement utilizes Strategic Doing to leverage assets in new ways to grow industries such as software, e-commerce internet selling, information technology and industries based on using digital technology.

University of Oregon/Institute for Policy Research and Engagement: For more than 40 years, the Institute for Policy Research and Engagement (formerly the Community Service Center) has linked the skills, expertise, and innovation of higher education with local planning, economic development, and environmental issues to improve quality of life for Oregon communities and residents. The Institute for Policy Research and Engagement service-learning education model provides students important service and professional experience by helping to solve community and regional issues.
