I’m involved a quite a few strategic planning projects right now. They are all different, certainly in subject matter, but also in terms of how the leader sees his/her role. Here’s what the best ones concentrate their attention on:
- The need to continually focus managers on driving value creation. This is both strategic (organic vs. acquisition) and tactical (driving productivity.)
- Taking the lead in transforming the business through decisive actions such as overhauling processes and changing roles of key people.
- Developing talent.
- Exploring external partnerships and opportunities.
- Taking risks where prudent and allocating resources in-line with strategy.
