How well does your organization manage the implementation of strategy? If you said “Really well,”statistically speaking, you are lying to yourself! Take that with a grain of salt, but also give that a minute to soak in.
It’s been proven that most companies aren’t effective at taking their strategy and making it meaningful for “the people that come to work every day. ” The good news is that it’s completely feasible to make this happen. People want to believe in their company. They want to do a good job and see the company succeed. They want to share in the rewards of that success. All in all, “people” aren’t the problem.
If you’re not seeing the results you want, start by changing the processes that support your people in making this all happen. As you start to make simple changes in what people focus on, talk about and work together, you will be creating momentum. These simple moves are all foundational to getting where you want to go, and getting the results you’re looking for.
