Michael Porter once said that good strategy is internally consistent – meaning, for it to succeed every function needs to align with it and execute it flawlessly. Seems simple and straightforward enough, right? But, internal disconnection is the #1 challenge I see each day to strategies in execution, so it’s harder than it sounds, and because it is so obvious is why so many overlook this small, but critical, point. Take the time to connect the pipes, to ensure that the entire cross-functional team understands the strategy and their specific roles in bringing it to life – the impact will be exponential. RealWinTips
