Translating Strategy to Action
Many organisations struggle with deploying their strategy. This workshop aims to address the transition of the strategy from “board level” into the first supporting layer of management. Strategic direction must be integrated with existing programmes and initiatives already in flight, with the often “fuzzy” understanding of strategy crystallised into specific responsibilities for the team and its individual members.
By working through this process senior managers clarify their understanding, formulate and begin to align their planning and the measurement system/metrics that will support execution. By creating a consensus on the way forward the team distils clarity from chaos, sees purpose and generates a “call to arms”.
We find these sessions are highly effective in providing an “organisational therapy session” where relationships within the team can be developed and roles clarified.
