Implementing business plans – Execution matters!
When it comes to implementing business plans the Execution matters more than the inspiration. Great strategies and business plans require great execution. Without effective execution, plans are worthless. That is why we created Simulthink – to help leaders, business owners and teams Think and Act Together!
Implementing business plans – inputs to successful execution
Success starts with a compelling and clearly articulated description of the TO-BE or future. Specifically, it should describe what the services, products, markets, customers, systems, resources, processes, staff, skills and assets look like.
People and teams gravitate to what they know and the AS-IS or way they have always worked. A driving reasons and catalyst for change is essential and it MUST get people motivated to act differently! People need to know they have to change.
Visibility is critical and often overlooked. Leaders, teams and staff must have visibility of the vision, goals, reasons for change and plans. They should not be confined to documents in drawers or on servers – get them up for people to see.
Leadership, teams and individuals must be aligned with the vision for the future, the case for action, the decisions taken and the action that is required for success. Successful implementation is not possible without alignment.
