Obtaining Clarity of Direction
Clarity begins with the defining of clear desired outcomes. Failure to answer and get agreement on this characteristic first is what creates chaos and complexity instead of clarity.
To further obtain clarity of direction, the CEO and senior management teams must agree on three shared documents:
- Vison/Mission statements
- Core strategies/annual organization priorities
- Core values
And the most important of all-Your competitive positioning in the marketplace
In addition to the above principles, three goals must be met in order to create and ultimately sustain a yearly Strategic Management System:
- Goal #1: The development of strategic, business and annual plans and documents
- Goal #2: Senior management must ensure the successful implementation of Enterprise-Wide Change has taken place
- Goal #3: High performance must continue to be built and sustained, year after year
Each goal above is designed to first work on the enterprise (goal 1), work in the enterprise (goal 2) and finally, check on the enterprise (goal 3) to create and sustain these multiple outcomes:
- Superior results in the financial, customer, employee and society sectors
- Business excellence in operational efficiency, organizational health and dignity, organizational effectiveness and ensure the organizational capactiy is maintained
