The strategic work of the Management Team
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.
In step with increased globalization and rapid technological development and new ways of working, strategic business development and change management are becoming increasingly important. The management's actions and ability to balance their time between the operative company management and the long-term strategic ones are of absolutely decisive importance. The absolutely most important task for the Management is to create sustainable conditions for the implementation and continuous development of the business with a clear focus on the Assignment. Here, Management must have a holistic view, be clear and consistent in its message and in its requirements and expectations for employees and managers.
It is important that Management has a common understanding of its role in the organization: What is the purpose of Management, WHY does it exist? WHAT should Management do and not do? HOW should the Management work? Equally important is that the Management is united behind visions and decisions and that they have the persistence to pursue issues until they have had an impact on the entire business. Some of the most common reasons why a business does not reach its goals are that the management lacks consistency and persistence.
A Management that stands for something in common, agrees and provides support to managers and employees, drives development and is consistent and persistent creates a functioning whole with enormous power, which has the strength to achieve very good results.
