Project Description

Chris Hafner
Fellow and Non-Executive Chairman of the Board

The Strategic Planning Society

Provocative and Contrarian yet perfectly practical practices to improving Innovation

Don’t embrace failure…Consciously disengage with more people…Focus less on answers…we take a provocative yet extremely practical view on advancing strategy and innovation throughout the organisation. Let’s challenge some of the popular narratives in today’s business conversations, expose some flaws and apply some practical reality to make a real impact.


Chris has worked with boards, executives and management teams of global organisations on Business Strategy, Organising for Innovation, Business Model Innovation, and Transformation.

In addition to his work at the Strategic Planning Society, Chris also serves as Lead Examiner for Strategy at the U.K. Institute of Directors and sits on the Board of Directors at the Association for Strategic Planning. Chris is also an Executive Director at Grovelands Ltd.  Chris’ past experience includes being the Founder & Chief Strategy Officer at a successful innovative tech start-up and being a Sr. Advisor at a US-based Venture Capital firm.

Recently, Chris has been working with organisations on artificial intelligence technologies as a core component of strategy and business model innovation.  Chris has worked closely with the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School and Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science, Language Technologies Institute and their Human Computer Interaction Institute at the intersection of innovation and artificial intelligence.
