Navigating the Dozens of Different Strategy Options

Navigating the Dozens of Different Strategy Options | Decisions, Knowledge and Leadership, Accelerating Performance | Scoop.it

In this adaptation from the new book, Your Strategy Needs a Strategy (HBR Press, 2015), BCG strategy experts make sense of the all the different, and competing, approaches to strategy: Which strategy is right for your business? When and how should you implement it? The practical tool offered here helps executives answer such questions as: What replaces planning when the annual cycle is obsolete? Where can we — and when should we — shape the game to our advantage? How do we simultaneously implement different strategies across different business units?

Harnessing Quant Power

Harnessing Quant Power | Decisions, Knowledge and Leadership, Accelerating Performance | Scoop.it

 

A new book by Thomas H.Davenport and Jinho Kim says that if we can’t turn all the data we’re swimming in into better decision making through quantitative analytics, “we are both wasting data and probably creating suboptimal performance.”   Keeping Up with the Quants “is geared toward executives who are not themselves analytics experts but whose jobs increasingly require them to understand and deal with those who have such expertise, both inside and outside their organizations,” writes Hayashi. The book outlines a framework for how to think like a quantitative analyst (“quant” is shorthand for the analysts who use stats to help solve business puzzles). The framework has three steps: “framing the problem,” “solving the problem” and “communicating and acting on results.”

The world needs Quants

Instead of Performance Appraisal, Encourage Self-Appraisals & Accountability

Instead of Performance Appraisal, Encourage Self-Appraisals & Accountability | Decisions, Knowledge and Leadership, Accelerating Performance | Scoop.it
For performance management to truly be effective accountability must be present...in the form of ...self-accountability driven by authentic, accurate self-assessment.
[How to] promote adaptive, constructive behavior and performance with the goal...for the employee to recognize his role
The manage ...can reinforce the employee's efforts by offering incremental reinforcement as incremental gains are made.
Self-assessment factors to explore:
Communication contributions What messages do I send?How do I offer them?What communication skills do I employ?To what extent do I seek and offer feedback during communications?
Perceptual lens 
To what extent do my motives, values, interests, attitudes, past experiences, current expectations, etc. color or affect my behavior?How can I gain insights about these factors to behave differently?
Role expectations 
What aspects of my role (e.g., tasks, responsibilities, boundaries, parameters, etc.) influence my behavior? What can I do manage these role expectations so that my behavior is more constructive?
Work area norms 
What beliefs or assumptions exist within my work area or team that impact the way I behave?What latitude do I have, as an individual, in ways that reflect my unique perspective?
Organizational culture 
In what kind of organizational setting do I work? What does the organization (and its leaders) say about the vision, mission, and values we are to uphold and pursue? How does my behavior compare with these espoused elements?
Ultimately, both managers and employees need to realize the simple fact that people differ in the way they perceive the world.  Photo:   Photo, credit to Konrad Glogowski, Flickr.com CC

When you are in it, you can't see it.  Teaching and reinforcing self-assessment can help us grow out of that big blind spot.  

The research photo, credit to Konrad Glogowski on Flickr, provides self-assessment guidance transferable to self-assessment and self-appraisal in performance setting.  


Use such an approach at the beginning of any review cycle.  


Provide easy-to-use supporting tools for data gathering and review.  ~ D
