Implementation turns strategy into action. Successful execution depends heavily on a shared understanding of the strategy within the organisation and its stakeholder groups. 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 organisations in bridging the gap between strategy formulation and execution by translating their strategy into concrete actions and projects with measurable targets, clear responsibilities and realistic time schedules.
- 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 practical work at divisional, team and personal level.
- The right metrics help to keep strategy on target by showing the organisation what is important in terms of the 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.
