Many companies have a strategic plan and ALL companies have a culture. If strategy and culture aren’t integrated, you ARE UNDER-DELIVERING! Is your company poised to Deliver a Culture of Stretegic Execution? If you ask a business leader about their Strategic Plan, the typical response is… “It’s around here somewhere,just let me look.” They believe a Strategic Planning Process is expensive; costing time, resources, and promises. A scalable and sustainable Strategic Execution Process is even more time consuming and costly. Many companies fail to deliver the results and promises contained within their Strategic Plan and that’s usually a Culture issue. Strategic Execution is not only about having a plan, but MORE importantly about putting the processes andsystems in place to cascade it throughout the organization, having measures and metrics to track your progress, and finally having a review and communication program to bring the plan to life. Of course, your people and culture make all of these happen – or not happen in way too many cases. Once you have a strategy defined, the next question should be… “Is my organization equipped to meet the full demands of this Strategic Plan?” If you cannot say YES with 100% enthusiasm, you should complete an Organization Design & Development Assessment; staffing, policies and procedures, decision making, talent acquisition, training, change management/readiness, etc. This work begins your Culture Assessment journey. Many believe the Strategy and Culture circle should encompass everything, but that’s a blog for another time. Remember, if you want to deliver your plans, ensure:
- Your plan is clear, action oriented and establishes true STRATEGIES
- You have put the PROCESSES and SYSTEMS in place to know where you are and why
- Your organization’s CULTURE is strong and ready to deliver.
