Having a strategy is one thing; executing it is something entirely different. High-performing organizations find the balance between setting strategic direction and allowing practical execution through decentralized decision-making empowered by Leader’s intent.
The use of collaborative planning and TeamStorming techniques at the strategic and operational levels of an organization cascades the intent of leadership and communicates that intent through the organization rapidly and effectively.
The Key to Organizational Alignment
Decentralized decision-making empowered by Leader’s Intent is the key to organizational alignment — and ultimately to effective execution of the overarching strategy. Everyone in the organization — from the front line to the C-suite — knows how their actions directly support the HDD.
Flawless Execution is a “fractal” planning tool, meaning that when used enterprise-wide, it ensures day-to-day operations are intentionally built to support high-level strategy and the HDD. Leader’s Intent means that an organization can say, with 100% confidence, that every team is executing toward those goals.
