“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success”
Strategy-Driven Execution Management
It’s the key to bridging the gap between strategy and execution. It happens in organizations all over the world. The management team gets together once, maybe twice a year, to create the plan for the organization. They are typically good plans that include a:
- Mission: It answers the question, why do we exist?
- Vision: It addresses the question, where do we want to go?
- Core Values: They articulate for the employees and your customers what you stand for.
- Corporate Initiatives: Those key activities that must occur over time to fulfill the mission and achieve the mission.
The problem : The team returns to the day to day activities of the organization and often loses sight of the plan. Then, the end of the year rolls around, and everyone’s frantically retrieving their list of goals for the year. The year-end review occurs and you find some goals were accomplished by happen stance or default but others, key to your long-term plan, have fallen by the wayside.
