From over 30 years of working with organizations of all sizes and in many industries on improving business outcomes especially growth and profits:
- The most valuable part is having a plan that focuses on both distinctive strategy and operational excellence.
- The hardest part is sticking to the plan by following-up on performance commitments including position accountabilities, projects, and key operating measures.
- The chief downfall is not aligning the organization with plan. Successful companies have one plan with everyone understanding their role in getting results. Also-rans may have a plan, but they let organizational functions and departments do their own thing.
