Implementation turns strategy into reality. Successful execution depends heavily on a shared understanding of the strategy among employees and other stakeholders. We help to crystallise the strategy, using text and visuals, and to create a clear communication plan to enable understanding, alignment and feedback.
Our tools and expertise support you in bridging the gap between strategy formulation and execution by translating the strategy into concrete actions and projects with measurable targets, clear responsibilities and realistic time schedules. We also help in identifying and overcoming obstacles that may slow progress toward achieving your strategic goals.
- Condensing strategy in a clear and concise message makes communication easier and works as a practical management tool. When done successfully, it builds support and aligns people with the strategy.
- A clear execution plan translates strategy into goals and activities at business unit, team and personal level.
- Right metrics help to keep the strategy on target by showing the organisation what is important in terms of strategy and its implementation.
- Using both process and outcome metrics helps to manage the portfolio of strategic initiatives: some projects may have to be wound down, while others may benefit from extra resources.
