Strategy works best when leaders create an evidence-based culture—one in which they are able to transform their vision into their organization’s purpose and encourage diversity of thinking to gain alignment and engagement.
Replicate: reproduce a previously successful strategy/ value proposition.
Formulate: take a gamble on an unproven strategy/ value proposition.
Evidence-led: Create a value proposition hypothesis and interrogate it with evidence.
Success is about delivering value and this is best and most reliably achieved through engaging with people, markets, and data and then gathering evidence on that reality and making decisions accordingly.
Strategy: the plan for how the organization intends to create value going forward
Engagement: the extent to which people will voluntarily invest their efforts beyond the financial or contractual benefits to them and
Alignment: the structures, systems, processes, and protocols necessary to position the organization to realize its strategy, objectives, and desired outcomes.
“I think the most important role for the CEO is to, first, develop a great leadership team and to develop with that leadership team a clear strategy,”
“Quality in a product or service is not what the supplier puts in. It is what the customer gets out and is willing to pay for. A product is not quality because it is hard to make and costs a lot of money, as manufacturers typically believe.
Businesses must reconnect company success with social progress. Shared value is not social responsibility, philanthropy, or even sustainability, but a new way to achieve economic success.
These leaders formulate a value proposition and then move to create a strategy to deliver it. Rather than test the hypothesis and open it up to debate with stakeholders, they forge on with their unproven value proposition. Typically, they are selective in soliciting opinions, listening only to those who agree with them or support their worldview. The results are usually disastrous.
