Why is it so hard to implement strategies?
Strategy has four enemies like:
- And Operational Effectiveness
We see too often that organisations are stuck in the middle by their drive to grow or to survive. Too many emails is an important modern signal. Strategy is about realizing (understanding or Begrip) and Strategy means also realizing (make it happen). You need to train your people and explain what the difference is that you want to make, if you want to create an unique value for your customer. You need to train your people to see the difference between OE, Operational Effectiveness (like Total Quality Management, Best Practices or outsourcing) and your SI, Strategy Implementation.
OE and SI are both important, but different. And if you understand the difference between OE, Operational Effectiveness and SI, Strategy Implementation, you will be able to train others how you response to each event or not. And an event will have a SI or OE Point of View. Which incident, issue, project, problem or misunderstanding is related to OE and which one to SI? We learn people to act better by reducing fear, distraction and compromising behaviour and give them tools to see the difference.
