Determining the necessary measures to be taken based on decisions
“We want to be the leader in innovation.” “We want to develop a new business area.” “We want to become a global player.” “We want to turn over more sales with services.”
When the top managers of a company make these kinds of strategic decisions, several things usually remain unclear: What are the resulting challenges for the various divisions and departments? And these certainly have not been gained as allies.
So now the task is the following:
to inform those responsible in the downstream levels of management about the decision,
together, to analyze where action and change is needed in order to realize this in their division,
to make the necessary follow-up decisions and
to determine the necessary measures that must be taken to realize this.
In addition, the measures must be coordinated ‒ across divisions and sites ‒ in such a way that all parties involved are on the same page.
We assist companies with these tasks by planning and the buy-in for your managers where they are informed of the decision and persuaded to get on board. We often hold top-down workshops for companies in which specific implementation steps are arranged with the employees.
STRATEGY IMPLEMENTATION WORKSHOP
eg. 2nd and 3rd level executives or real working teams
working out information about the strategic decisions made and the included goals
“Which action/change needs result thereof for me/us? ”
arranging steps to reach the main goal
convince the participants and agree on a strategy implementation plan with them.
