Veteran Owned Small Business

Studies show organizations which have set goals significantly out earn non-goal setting organizations.  In fact in one study published in the Harvard Business Review, indicated that companies with a well defined and well articulated strategy outperformed other companies by over 900% vs. 60% during a 10 year period.  So how is it that goal setting creates such a dramatic improvement. Numerous studies have proven that an individual with a defined purpose and absolute clarity will move mountains to achieve their goal.  

This may be true, but we also know that a group of individuals left to their own won’t achieve high levels of performance.   Let’s explore how to leverage the ability of a single person throughout an organization and create a high powered performing team.

Strategy Planning

The art of creating a strategic plan need not be difficult or daunting.  The strategy needs to take into account a time horizon of 3 to 5 years.   There should be stretch goals.  Often times it is valuable to have someone look at it who is not bound by the traditions of the company.

Execution Management

Execution Management is used to ensure all the strategy setting, goals definition, target setting, and assigning individuals to accomplish the work will yield the results that have been so painstakingly planned out.  

Execution management is epitomized in many companies through the use of a Project Management Office (PMO).  Only trouble is the PMO is organized and chartered to manage projects.  The PMO is not chartered to manage all the tasks that must be performed throughout the organization.  These activities are managed less rigorously and less frequently.  It is this “less frequently” that seals the fate of many strategies.  Change that and you change the results.  

Using the KeyneLink Execution Management solution enables companies who are focused on improvement to realize the results they planned.  And these results more often are done on time and meet their target.
