Leaders face the difficult challenge of selecting those few operational activities their organization will pursue from the multitude that are proposed every planning cycle. Collectively, these activities define the company; its culture, its direction, and ultimately its success or failure.
Selecting those activities the organization engages in requires a degree of both art and science. Initiatives pursued should support the organization’s qualitatively defined values, culture, and strategy while at the same time positioning it to maximize quantifiable benefit creation at minimum cost. The resulting portfolio of activities to be performed serves as an input to both the annual and long-range business plans; charting the course for the organization’s future.
The StrategyDriven Alternative Selection Forum focuses on the principles and practices enabling leaders to most effectively choose those strategic initiative options aligned with the organization’s values and goals while offering a maximum value return to the organization and its stakeholders. Subscribing to this forum provides access to its principles, best practices, and warning flags articles and associated documents.
