Why Getting Started with Strategy Deployment helps our clients?
Although Strategy Deployment is a structured and systematic approach, we find that leadership teams can struggle with their first real-world use of it in their organisations. Sometimes this can be down to understanding and interpretation of the concepts, availability of required information or inappropriate use of the tools; for example what is the right level of granularity, how many Strategic Essentials and Critical Objectives is right for us? In other cases the difficulty results from having an inexperienced facilitator or using a leadership team member as the facilitator as well as contributor; in this situation they can struggle with wearing these two hats and retaining objectivity.
Having a launch workshop and shared experience that comes from working together through the approach, is very powerful in aligning a senior management group on the Strategy and how it will be executed. The experience also facilitates deliberation on how success will be measured, translating the Strategic Metrics and KPIs into practical measures at the everyday operational process level.
