It is commonly accepted that 70% of organisations fail to deliver their chosen strategy – and therefore to reach their overall goals / vision.
This remarkable failure rate reflects common every-day behaviour – we find it very easy to promise (“I’ll phone you back in 5 minutes”) but then equally easy to find an excuse for not doing so.
But strategy execution is not doomed to failure. There are steps that management can take to strengthen, significantly, their execution success rate. Our programme focused upon these key steps grouped into the three main themes summarised below.
Our intensive and highly interactive course is arranged around 3 main themes
1) The crucial importance of having a chosen business strategy that is clearly defined, facilitates ownership and measurement, and is cascaded / aligned throughout the organisation. Do we have a clear strategy? And how effectively do we adapt and modify that strategy as global turbulence requires? Do we have strategic agility?
2) The key processes necessary to support successful strategy implementation / execution. Strategy execution will not happen by accident, and simply having a plan is not in itself enough. There are key management processes that can significantly help the success rate.
3) The key cultural / behavioural requirements to support (rather than to block) successful delivery of the chosen strategy. Noting Peter Drucker’s famous quote – “culture eats strategy for breakfast”
