We were caught by surprise when a competitor did this...
We don't have alignment on what is important to work on...
Our growth "strategy" is to work on things our customers ask for.
Our strategy is something we produce not a system for growing.
Our execution speed is slower than those we compete with...
Our "gate" process is ok for risk but it slows us down too much...
We compromise brilliance for "safety", the best of our ideas die along the way...
We have strategies, goals, metrics but can't achieve profitable growth needs
Alignment? Systems for execution? Who has time for that?
We can't seem to change our socks without a committee meeting
Change is happening so fast, I am not even sure I know what an innovation is anymore...
Of course I have a growth strategy, its just that nobody understands it.
I am typically brought in when executives or owners/boards want to accelerate change by executing new strategies, business models, M&A or divestitures, management practices....
so you don't have time to do this and your full time job, you have worked hard to get where you are and you don't want to jeopardize what you have worked hard to build...
a) I tailor my work to fit their unique situation and goals, b) I focus on things they can sustain, c) I execute, d) I stick around to adjust when the results start coming in
