Guest Blogger George L. Morrisey: Are You Ready for Strategic Planning?

leaderCommunicator

The following questions, addressed by plan­ning team members, both individually and as a group, may help determine the degree of readiness: Why do we want to undertake a strategic plan at this time? Like other management processes, strat­egic planning must be organized, communicated, and implemented systemati­cally. Key strategic areas, critical issues, long-term objectives, major actions, financial projections, pages 5-10. This is not a facetious question.

Many of them utilize a goal-setting system Doerr calls “OKR,” for “objectives” and “key results.” ” His new book, Measure What Matters , contains his explanation for how and why the system works, as well as case studies by leaders who’ve adopted it — including Bill Gates, Larry Page, and Bono.

The Folly of Stretch Goals

Harvard Business Review

Deming insisted that companies, "Eliminate management by objective." A stretch goal is most often an outcome metric, and is influenced by so many variables that systematic, scientific improvement isn't possible.

Management’s Three Eras: A Brief History

Harvard Business Review

Organization as machine – this imagery from our industrial past continues to cast a long shadow over the way we think about management today. Managers still assume that stability is the normal state of affairs and change is the unusual state (a point I particularly challenge in The End of Competitive Advantage ). But even as these old ideas remain in use (and indeed, are still taught), management as it is practiced by the most thoughtful executives evolves.
