Your problem:
Your past attempts at setting a strategy haven’t been successful.
You have:

  • Set lofty goals without a detailed plan to reach them

  • Just set a revenue goal and thought this was the strategy

  • Or you had a plan, but then new facts emerged that made the plan irrelevant

  • Or the day-to-day whirlwind crowded out the strategic priorities

  • The plan felt like it was additional work, on top of everything else, and no one had the bandwidth for it

It’s time for Better Strategy.

Your problem:
You know you need to work more strategically. You know it’s important.
But the Urgent always interferes with the Important and crowds it out.
And the problem gets compounded by:

  • Lack of alignment in the senior leadership team

  • A disconnect between strategy and execution

  • The fact that there is no clear list of actions

  • Your organization is not aligned to the strategy – everybody does whatever they want

Put bluntly, there is a gap between Strategy and Execution.

The Cause of The Problem: Old School Strategy

The way many organizations practice strategy today is broken. Strategy has degenerated into lofty vision statements, updating last year’s plans, financial forecasting, and long laundry lists of wishes from various parties throughout the organization. That’s what I mean by “Old school strategy is dead.”

Old School Strategy 💀

  • Financial targets only and loft vision statements

  • 3-5 year plans

  • Benchmarking, best practices, and following competitors

  • Done once a year at a fancy offsite

  • Think, then do

  • Working behind closed boardroom doors

  • Analytics and PowerPoint

  • Outsourced to "done-for-you" consultants

The New Rules of Better Strategy 🔥💰🍾💥

  • Focus on most critical challenges and highest-value opportunities

  • Which can be addressed in the next 12-18 months

  • Puts innovation back into strategy

  • Is always-on

  • Think while doing

  • Involves relevant stakeholders

  • Engages people in conversations

  • You take ownership and responsibility

Today, strategy needs to be more nimble, it needs to be focused on your most pressing challenges and highest-value opportunities, and it needs to be action-oriented to ensure successful execution. And it might need to be updated flexibly and quickly based on new insights and events happening around you.→ That’s what we will build in the Create Better Strategy Program.My Strategy Launchpad is a proven approach to Make Better Strategy.

And Strategy also needs to end the separation between the “day-to-day” and “strategy”. These have to become one and the same.
This is where the Strategy Activation Framework comes in. In the bottom left circle called “Activate Your Strategy”, there are 7 areas we need to work on:

  • Involve + Engage - How and when should you involve your organization in the strategy process?

  • Align - How will you align the activities throughout your organization to the overall strategy?

  • Prioritize - What can be done within business as usual? What requires special initiatives?

  • Enable + Support - How are you going to support strategy execution?

  • Evaluate - How are you evaluating the progress and results of your strategy? Is the strategy working or not?

  • Orchestrate - How are you going to steer, manage, update your strategy?

  • Open - Opening Up strategy: Open process, open content, open ended

These areas will be at the heart of our discussion. And this time, we will create your unique, individualized plan.Six sessions don’t sound like much. But in my experience, that’s all we need. If Strategy is more complicated than that, it usually doesn’t withstand the test of the real world.
