The People / Strategy Connection
Once your strategy map has been created, it’s up to your people to execute on it. Who…will do what…and when? Your management team, and your entire staff as well, need to know what results you are trying to achieve. Then, they must clearly understand and accept their role in this process.
This is why it is so important that you have the right people on your bus. People who have a sense of pride and responsibility and will take personal responsibility for achieving results. Accountability is key!
Experience has taught me that successful outcomes are most easily achieved when those responsible for developing the strategy are also responsible for implementing it.
Strategy. People. Processes. All of these, when fully linked and aligned, are what make execution both possible and likely.
