Why do our strategic growth plans work when so many fail?
Our unique three-step approach ensures we have high quality inputs to the plan, that the growth plan provides focus that aligns the leadership team and an action plan connects the growth plan to the day-to-day operations of the organization. Each phase has its own critical breakthrough, resulting in the ability to achieve breakthrough growth. Unfortunately, other processes don’t have all three steps and lead to break downs instead of breakthroughs.
Become a Breakthrough Master
Step One: The personal breakthrough in discovery comes when you understand the importance of thinking about the business in new ways that shine the light on market-driven growth opportunities. The better the market insight, the more likely you will have market success.
Step Two: The leadership breakthrough is the result of the shared leadership journey to craft the strategy that provides the future direction and breakthrough growth for the organization. When the team jointly participates in the “ah-ha” moment(s), alignment and commitment permeates the organization, through its leaders.
Step Three: The company breakthrough occurs when the entire organization gets on board to journey to the next level of success and achieves breakthrough growth. Breakthrough growth doesn’t happen from the C-suite.—the entire organization needs to work together to make it happen. No silos. All stakeholders must know what is expected of them and be motivated to deliver. That means we work side-by-side to create the action plan and ensure implementation gets quick traction.
One common reason for failed plans is not completing the first and last step, with all of the effort applied to developing the strategy. Market knowledge, the first step, must be the foundation on which the strategy is built. The final step, implementation or delivery, assures the strategy comes to life in the day-to-day operations of the business.
