Strategy – Connecting The Vision with The Reality

Disconnects are just so common when it comes to people and performance. And when it comes to implementing strategy, the research says that few initiatives meet the goals and expectations of the senior management who designed it. Robin Speculand goes on to suggest that 90% of strategy implementations fail in some respect.

My view is that it is often that disconnect between the front of the wagon and the back, between the wagon pullers and the wagon pushers.

My simple cartoon poster on that, at least the first one, looks something like this:

LEGO POSTER STRATEGY Your vision their reality

That seems to illustrate at least one issue around many.
