Plan to win…

“No company, small or large, can win over the long run without energized employees who believe in the mission and understand how to achieve it.”
~ Jack Welch

…and don’t 
underestimate

“Culture eats Strategy for breakfast.”
~ Peter Drucker

 

Organizational Effectiveness

A clearly defined and communicated Vision and Mission which support and align to long term strategy are foundational to achieving success.  To reach and sustain high performance however, both a strong and supporting culture and organizational structure are required.  Too often we find:

 

Failure to optimize structure – Despite changes in strategy, technology and operations the organizational structure goes unaddressed.  Some consider it unimportant, others view it to hard or costly but nearly all underestimate the value it can enable and the implications of no change.

Culture without heart –  Culture is often said to be the heart of a business.  Imagine then heart disease: a culture misaligned with strategy, inconsistent culture or inconsistent implementation, lack of penetration where leaders don’t live the culture or worse just set of words on paper without heart.

Stifled innovation – and increased risk. Failure to foster an inclusive environment that values and encourages diversity of background, experience and thought results in companies not getting the most out of their people. Employees who feel excluded or marginalized are less likely to speak up, contribute, share ideas and concerns.
