Creating & Prioritizing Strategic Initiatives:
Defining the Action Steps Needed to Achieve Operational Objectives
Strategy Execution Consulting Services
Once the operational objectives necessary to achieve the strategic objectives of the overall strategic plan have been defined, we must identify the actions we will take to deliver the operational objective improvements.
These actions (“strategic initiatives”) may include major projects, minor projects or even smaller tasks and may be targeted at all levels of the organization impacting policies, processes, people and systems.
Accordingly, a “Strategic Initiative” is simply an improvement project or action that delivers the needed improvement to achieve an operational objective in our strategy map.
The prioritization of strategic initiatives is an essential component of optimizing value where short-term incremental operational improvement activities are integrated with longer-term strategic initiatives.
Defining the action steps needed to achieve operational objectives are accomplished in weeks rather than months!
Working with your team, we provide our deep strategy execution experience and expertise, including best practice tools, techniques, and methods, to facilitate high-intensity, short-duration, sprints to rapidly create and prioritize strategic objectives.
Defining the action steps needed to achieve operational objectives typically includes a balanced mix of decision makers responsible for executing strategy within each layer of the organization. For example, an organization's C-level and senior leadership team, and/or divisional/business unit leadership and management, and/or functional/department management plus any additional stakeholders that can provide additional insight into the development of strategic initiatives that support the operational and strategic objectives. Finance and Accounting representation is also recommended.
