Sample Content from this Module
The working title for this element of the Game Change program is CLEAR DIRECTION. Our approach tackles the issue that even the most enterprising individuals and teams fail if they don’t adopt a pragmatic approach to the day-to-day challenges of managing and directing business improvement.
The Importance of Hats
“Responsibility + Purpose = Action. With the functional Hats you generate added responsibility. The Future State gives you added purpose. When you marry the two, results are exponential.”
Challenging: The Past Present Future Test
“The purpose of the Game Change Approach is to embed a mindset and process that repeatedly challenges you to think past, present and future. That is how strategic drift is prevented, by maintaining performance at the demanded levels and remaining acutely aware of impending threats and opportunities. Not reactively when there’s a crisis, but proactively to avert the crisis in the first place.”
Execution and the Order of Business
“If you don’t consider each function in the act of business sequentially this generates confusion. In our experience, most entrepreneurs make the mistake of adopting finance as the dominant and lead function. The reverse approach is true in high performing businesses.”
