Strategy Direction

A top manager and I had a great meeting this morning discussing business strategy. Not many realize how direction is so vital in driving employee behavior and performance. Many people in positions of management simply want systems to be created without looking at what factors actually give their organization a competitive edge in the first place. "We need a system that'll get us more organized".. more organized to do what and to achieve what? So we mapped out a business strategy that would take the organization to where it needs to go for ultimate success. We considered market factors, performance indicators, the current job structure, the business environment, and organizational culture. From that picture, we decided upon what was worth paying employees for. You can imagine the rest of the roll-out.
