Mobilize and

Do your employees understand the organization’s “North Star”?


How do you translate a strategy into something meaningful for your teams?


This translation can take a company from good to great!

THE FRAMEWORK FOR IMPLEMENTATION

 

A strategy must be converted into visible measures of success

  • Identify initiatives that will deliver on strategies

  • Identify product/process streams and inputs & outputs

Performance measures are achieved by structured improvement initiatives

  • Initiatives are chartered with specific scopes and targets

  • Set targets that motivate the organization

Organizational schematics visualize this linkage and align employees’ work to objectives

  • Employees are engaged in these initiatives and can see alignment

  • Leading indicators are identified and tied to top level measures

Change
