Empower your teams to do their part in achieving growth and change
So, your organization has a strategy. Now what?
Strategy is about articulating a strategic direction for the future. Achieving it is a different story.
Strategy execution is, in many ways, harder because this is where the change takes place. Yet, strategy formulation gets all the boardroom bravado, causing leaders to overinvest in strategy formulation and underinvest in a meaningful framework for strategy execution.
Strategy execution is the responsibility that makes or breaks executives.
A wise warning by Alan Branche and
Sam Bodley-Scott of Implementation
Teams wrestle to align and prioritize their work when their strategy execution approach fails to:
- Articulate what success looks like (The Why)
- Provide a deliberate and repeatable approach to cascading strategy
- Use meaningful measures for evidence-based decision-making
- Create an environment that encourages learning, not judging
At Adura, we improve strategy execution by helping leaders:
We were having trouble creating team connection between the corporate strategy, the marketing strategy, and the work being done on a day-to-day basis. Louise expertly guided us through the process and now we feel so much more unified.
