STRATEGY GAP

A new strategy starts with the management, but then it must be implemented in the organisation. All too often, this does not happen as smoothly and quickly as the management intended.

The management sees a need for the company to set a new course, perhaps due to a disruptive change in the market. It discusses options and directions and, following a decision process, agrees on a new strategy for the company. This new strategy is normally conveyed to middle management and the organisation at meetings.

A new strategy always entails change, which affects the way the organisation and its middle management work. The management, which has produced the strategy, knows that change is necessary. The organisation and the middle management, who are in the middle of everyday challenges, do not see the same need for change and do not understand how they will find time for that too. The company now has a strategy gap!

– By managing the strategy gap in the change process, we develop the organisation’s ability to manage continual change #for real

Sustainable Results: Instant Execution
