“Employees at three out of every five companies rated their organization weak at execution…” This was one result of a Harvard assessment of employees from more than 1,000 companies, governments and non for profits. The Harvard assessment resulted in the 17 traits of organizational effectiveness where the number one trait was “Everyone has a good idea of the decisions and actions for which he or she is responsible”. This can be achieved when there is a plan with clear strategies and supporting tactics. It is at the tactical level that people find their accountability. Teams love accountability especially when they see how it supports a plan. It is even more effective when employees take part in creating the strategic plan and own it. Part 2 of our 2-part series on strategic planning focuses on the strategies and tactics that achieve the company’s or function’s key goals and objectives. Time is also spent in terms of personal strategies and tactics.
