Strategy Deployment is a way to change or upgrade a process within your organisation. Consequently, many strategies fail to be effectively deployed in organisations. Why? Research published in the CFO Magazine shows the percentage of people who understand their organisation’s strategy.
40% Middle Management
3% Rest of Work Force
As a result, it’s not too surprising that so many strategies fail to be effectively deployed!
Catalyst’s DRIVE Model
1. DEFINE PHASE
In the Define phase, you’ve recognised where you want the organisation to be – its ‘True North’.
2. REVIEW PHASE
The Review phase provides a reality check assessing the organisation’s capability to achieve the change needed.
3. IMPROVE PHASE
There are three parts to the Improve phase that look to prepare for the journey, the shape and scope of what needs to be done, and finally implement the agreed actions and projects.
4. VERIFY PHASE
The Verify phase you are monitoring progress and performance against plan ensuring that you are on track.
5. ESTABLISH PHASE
Finally, the Establish phase ensures the gains made can be held within the organisation. This is important as you seek to embed the new ways of working into the organisation.
We can help you develop and action the deployment plan needed.
