SHORT STRATEGY STATEMENTS - LEARN THE 5 KEY ELEMENTS OF THIS POWERFUL MANAGEMENT TOOL

 

I ended my last article by explaining strategy as "an ideal that requires a goal, a time frame for realizing that goal, the framework in which the goal will be reached, and the company's unique approach that promises its success." Let us keenly observe the key five elements in the above definition:


1. The word "goal" is singular - For an organization to stay focused on a singular goal, there is a need for strategy. There is a defined result that comes with keenly focusing on a particular thing rather than a method that seeks to achieve multiple things. It is being effective and efficient on doing things.


2. Stating a time frame is vital - Together with a defined goal, when there is a time frame, there becomes an awareness on performance indicators and this is important to ensure the effective execution of strategy. Also, there is energy and motivation to always deliver.


3. This context analyses the precise area of competition the company will operate in. It is necessary to know this. It is not enough to say “we are going to grow to a 10-restaurant chain by 2012”. Rather, one must have properly outlined the knowledge and present it like “we are going to grow to a chain of 10 family-oriented, sit down, full service, Italian restaurants in southern Oregon by 2012”.

Introduction

Defining what makes you stand out from others is the salient part of a strategy. It is vital to know some certain questions, like, what makes your Italian restaurant better than the next available one? Is the food offered? The location of the restaurant? The physical aesthetics? Is there any live Italian music? There must be an exceptional and imitable characteristic that close competitors can’t reproduce.

Passion

 Finally, we can say that strategy is “Quintessential”. For potential to be truly achieved, there is a vital need to create a strategy, clearly, define it and have it stated and properly passed round every department in the organization. This brings about a uniformity in goal execution. One of the effective ways of doing it is cutting your strategy to a single sentence.

Putting this into Practice

Here is an example of a one-sentence strategy statement:
Jason will have an addition of 40,000 net new customers by August 15, 2015, by offering premium, web-based, price comparison software to mid-sized, English-speaking, North American commercial construction companies using a “high-touch” sales and support approach.
Can you identify the goal, the context and time frame? How would Jason have guaranteed the exceptionality of its tactic?

Short Strategy Statements Align The Company's Activities

For a strategy to be easily communicated to everyone in an organization, there is a need for an abridged strategy into a single sentence. This ultimately provides a framework that aids in aligning the entire staff. It saves staff time and energy by preventing or by answering many of the questions that come up each day:

  1. "Will we bundle hardware with our offering?"
  2. "When will our Spanish version be ready?"
  3. "Will we match our competitor's price?"
  4. "The residential construction association called. Should I do a presentation for them?"
  5. "Can I attend the European trade show to see what their market is like?"

All decision in an organization will be shaped by their strategy definition. Their strategy statement, by an extension, will influence the greater decisions in hiring, product development, an approach of sales, IT deployment, development of office.

4. Lighting The Oven

The flame underneath a pot on the stove should not spread out past the sides of the pot. Ensure to use the right size of pot for the burner and always regulate the flame coming out from the burner so as to avoid flaring up on the corners of the pot. Never allow food to boil over. A disadvantage is that it could put out the flame while the gas is still on and this increases the risk of a fire/explosion. Another disadvantage of allowing food boil over is blockage of holes in the gas burner and lead to a turnout of uneven cooking and or difficulty in lighting the burner.


5. Pizza Stones Help Even Things Out

A pizza stone may be the way to go to help settle an oven with crazy hot spots. A pizza stone is designed to hold heat very well, also, it puts out heat in an even way. The stone can also prove to be a great way to help set the bottoms of various types of casseroles and can be very pivotal in one-pan dinners. Finally, don't line the stove burners with foil, as this could inhibit air flow to the burners.
