Systematise

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED?

CLARITY

95%

of employees don’t understand their organisation’s strategy

ALIGNMENT

66%

of HR and IT organisations develop strategic plans that are not linked to the organisation’s strategy

GOVERNANCE

85%

of leadership teams spend less than 1 hour per month discussing strategy

DELIVERY

Only 41%

of executives say their companies provide sufficiently skilled personnel to implement high-priority strategic initiatives and only 11% believe they have the resources required for success.

PEOPLE

70%

of all change initiatives fail. But why? In most of the cases organizational-change failures are driven by … negative employee attitudes and unproductive management behavior.  Having a formal framework to manage resistance to change, governance and decision making is critical.

MEASURES

Only 40%

of executives say their companies are “good” at feeding back lessons from successful implementation into strategic planning, and just 33% when it comes to unsuccessful ones. Worse, 33% have no method at all.
