In today’s economy, a failed execution of strategy uses up both time and resources that can’t be wasted. Corporate executives, consultants and academics intend to find ways to eliminate the abiding gap between the strategic vision and reality of corporate performance.
The REALIZETM framework eliminates this gap and making strategic vision a reality by,
- Linking strategy to business processes
- Understanding and leveraging the corporate culture in which these processes exist
- Connecting people, processes and strategy from a very early stage in strategic initiatives.
REALIZETM framework follows a simple logic and breaks down the strategic execution process into seven steps as follows,
Robust Strategy: Building robust strategies to compel and excite people to execute them
Enable Change: Working with the culture that exists, not changing it
Approach: Going beyond project plans to engage key stakeholders in the implementation
Leading Change: Leading a change requires listening and the capacity to lead as a team
Invest: Making choices to acquire key competencies for successful implementation
Zeal: Paying attention to build and create energy and momentum for implementing change
Ensure: Embedding implementation in day-to-day work life.
