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. A critical set of institutions are official "affiliate" universities. Affiliates have a corps of professionals with experience using Strategic Doing and guiding others in its use, and offer training to interested organizations and/or individuals. The 2.5 day training "Strategic Doing 301: Leading Complex Collaborations" is only offered by affiliates.
If your institution is interested in becoming an affiliate, contact us.
The first four affiliate institutions (more on the way soon) were announced in May, 2018:
