Take the Test – how clear is your strategy?

It is essential to have a clear strategy that everyone in your business understands and can contribute to.

Take this simple test to see how clear your business strategies are:

A) Ask your staff these 4 questions:

  1. What are the 4-6 things that make us different from our competitors?
  2. As a business what key things do we really excel at?
  3. What are our main current business priorities?
  4. In your job what do you think are the most important things you need to achieve?
Would your strategies get an A+ for Clarity?

Would your strategies get an A+ for Clarity?

B) Review their answers.

How consistent are they?  Can you see any themes running through the answers?  Do the themes resonate with your core business strategies?

C) Decide what this exercise tells you

Either congratulate yourself or identify what you need to do to communicate your strategies and their relevance more clearly to your team so they can contribute more to achieving them.

“We found it of huge benefit to getting started on the strategic path – it certainly made us see it in a different light and not something to be afraid of, nor something that you need a degree for just to understand what your company's strategy is actually saying!”
