* In November 2014, Implement Consulting Group held a global learning lab in New York, which they co-hosted with Roger Martin. It was a strategy session held with the purpose of reinforcing the new way of strategising and to create collective insight into how Playing to Win can improve the way we answer complex strategic questions.  This video contains clips of interviews with some of the people who attended the session.
