Chanage and Transformation
To combat the challenges of change and transformation to a business we look for consistency of purpose which requires “sticking to the plan”. This is the strategic plan, which articulates the Values, Vision and Mission of the organisation, and drives everything.
It is important to carefully create the strategic plan, and then live it out. The strategic plan ought to leave enough room for tactical flexibility, to deal with short-term economic and marketplace changes, but it ought to be strong enough, and visible enough, to endure. The best strategic plan is the pure strategy one of planning the action and actioning the plan.
So, what separates the best from the rest?
The answer stares you straight in the face when you walk into an organisation for the first time. It’s not just what you see or hear, but in what you sense and feel. Consistency of purpose starts with the welcome at the door and the obvious expression of the organisation’s core values.
It’s in the culture for excellence and then building the culture of excellence. It’s the mindset, the language, the gestures, the engagement and the sheer enthusiasm to rise above the rest, be second to none and achieve the best possible.
In a nutshell, that’s what excellence is – better results and bottom-line improvement from the door to the roof.
