Strategy Fails Because Companies Don’t Do It.

By November 16, 2023January 17th, 2024No Comments

The article goes on: “Many executives say they weren’t prepared for
the strategic challenges they faced upon being appointed to senior
leadership roles.” Sound familiar?

Our Maximum Impact

Plans Don’t sit on a shelf or a hard
drive, they align forces, garner support,
maximize performance, & get results.

At Strategic Impact, we help organizations with Strategy, we help with Planning, and we help with Execution. It is important to recognize that Strategy, Planning, and Execution are three inter-related but distinct bodies of work.

Our proven system helps organizations excel in all three of these areas. And while all are crucially important, we have found that strategies are the biggest determinant of long-term success and impact. As Peter Drucker said, “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.”

The recommendations:

  • First, leaders must admit there’s a problem – which is the most difficult challenge they face
  • When leaders admit they need some help, they should look for experienced outside experts
  • Find and engage consultants who have no vested interests in the outcome of their recommendations
  • In addition to outside strategists, companies should also consider contracted outsiders to lead strategy execution
