Simplified Strategy Planning for outrageous success

Do you want to have a fabulous year? Do the following and your organization will have more success this year than in any previous year!

Step 1: Review and refine your organization’s vision

Step 2: Create meaningful and strategically essential organizational objectives (a vital few) that align to your vision

Step 3: Align your organization’s performance metrics to the organization’s vital few objectives listed in step 2 (cascade these measures to every function, team and person throughout the organization)

Step 4: Identify strategic initiatives that are required to achieve your organization’s vital few objectives

Step 5: Assign ownership and accountability of each of the vital few objectives and associated initiatives to an executive that reports to you (do not allow the executives to delegate ownership of the objectives)

Step 6: Let the fun begin!!!!

Communicate, communicate and communicate the status of the vital few objectives in every communication produced. Don’t let the organization confuse other non-critical activities with your vital few objectives.

Need help, with a strategic planning methodology, tools, or software, give me buzz!

Anything not worth doing is worth not doing well. Think about it.
