Bringing Journey Orientation into focus.

Change has changed, becoming much more like a dynamic journey on a shifting landscape. The longitudinal dimension of journey orientation has emerged as a 3rd and primary dimension around which we must reframe our approach to translating strategy and execution into traction. This requires higher order executive strengths, to master a new mindset/chassis of business acumen for organizational agility.

Our flight envelope is prone to collapsing back to the bottom-left-hand corner of our Execution Excellence agenda because of conspiring forces, including, (i) the tyranny-of-the-urgent and (ii) our unconscious-resistance to the more ambiguous and abstract work of strategy and the long-range. That leaves us flying blind.

Holding a Recurring, Rigorous & Rallying Strategy Process.

The essence of strategy is conversation – i.e if you don’t have much conversation, you probably don’t have much strategy. Unless we hold ourselves fully accountable, a strategy process can easily become ill-disciplined, open-ended and laborious.

Unlocking & Challenging Mental Models.

The paradigms, mindsets, assumptions and beliefs held by you, your team and your organization are the mental models through which you interpret the world. Old, used-up and out-of-date mental models imprison our thinking and ability to see new possibilities and pathways.

The execution capability and capacity of our enterprise is more than the sum of the above parts – often all of the parts are there but the whole hasn’t emerged – some integration is required, to combine the art and science of a unifying architecture of execution. This doesn’t happen by accident (hence the “!” in “!ntegrating”) and includes recognizing and teaching execution as a system and a discipline, of accumulating knowledge, tools and techniques, broadly and deeply throughout the organization.
