Most plans fail.
Plans rarely fail because of misguided strategy or a lack of good ideas. If anything, organizations have a bad habit of putting too many good ideas in their plans.
Most plans fail because of problems related to execution. Too many non-essential initiatives. Confusion around roles and responsibilities. Failure to follow-through. Lack of accountability.
That’s why my book Lead The Way outlines a simple planning process and a straightforward approach to execution. The strategic plans that I help organizations develop make it very clear Who will do What by When.
You can download for free a fast, simple, one-page plan that I call a Migration Chart™. (Under Strategic Planning Resources section)
A simple plan will drive high performance.
So keep your plan simple. Because execution is not easy.
To dive even deeper into the topic of accountability, I invite you to purchase a copy of my bestselling book, “Accountability: The Key to Driving a High-Performance Culture.”
