Instead, each member of the Management Team formulates a own message for each department. The overall communication, the message, the vision of the business and its development and change will then diverge within the organization, with as many variations as Management Team members. The Management Team has fallen into the Operational Pitfall.
The consequence is that the development and change of the business becomes unclear and confusing for the employees, they feel insecure and perhaps also frustrated. They are not sure WHAT to do or HOW to do it, let alone WHY to do it. Parts of the company have different ideas about WHO should do it.
Has the Management Team received an increasing amount of detailed operational questions from managers and employees in the organization lately??
I offer Boards and Management Teams a help to structure the strategic development work. Based on a strategic holistic perspective, analyse the objectives, current situation and conditions to identify strategic needs for development and change in the business' direction, organization, working methods, digitization and competence. Establish a strategic plan with clear priorities, with consensus and unambiguous communication and messages to the organization for future development and change.
