The Trouble with Putting Goals Ahead of Strategy

The Trouble with Putting Goals Ahead of Strategy | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Many business leaders subscribe to the classic definition of strategy as a set of actions designed to achieve an overall aim. In other words, they believe strategy starts with a goal. But for companies that have implemented winning strategies, that’s not how it typically happens.

Starting with your big idea! #strategy #business

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, July 4, 2015 2:05 AM

I guess many of us had all wrong when we put the goal first. Be it business houses, or educational institutions, or even learners, hitting at the goal first, according to the writer of the article, might not have been a sure path to success! Even Bill Gates arrived at the goal after he had made a few attempts to provide an operating system for micro-computers. It was only after a few false starts, one of which was when his software began to be pirated that he decided to have one operating system across different machines with differing configurations. That, I guess was his goal! To have a operating software was his big idea, his goal was to have a single operating system, while his strategy was built through his experience of pushing his product into the market (the piracy of his first attempt probably taught him a lesson in strategy!). The writer of the article makes it clear that the correct path to success starts with 1.Having a Big Idea, 2.Having a Strategy, 3.Having a Goal. Bill Gates is now closest to his goal of ensuring that almost everyother home in the developed world has a computer!

We’re all trying our best to remain standing, but the ground beneath us is shifting at an accelerating rate. The implications for strategy are profound, but few have explored this terrain.

Excerpt from John's blog post: 


Make no mistake about it, if all you do is focus on learning within the four walls of your firm, you’ve already lost. The key to scaling learning is to be able to reach out beyond your enterprise and find ways to connect with world-class participants in a broad array of complementary domains in ways that will help all participants to learn faster.

The Power of Conversational Leadership — HBS Working Knowledge

The Power of Conversational Leadership — HBS Working Knowledge | New Leadership | Scoop.it

"In many cases you have an executive team that's so sure about company strategy, but then you go inside the organization and find that nobody else has a clue,"


A strategic conversation based on 4 elements:

Intimacy is about leadership. Interactivity is about channels. Inclusion is about content. Intentionality is about goals, vision, and the strategy of getting things done.

Good leadership article strategy+business on leading in times of high turbulence and great uncertainty. According to the authors "sustaining a business in uncertain times requires executives to prioritize stability, resilience, and relationship management." Plus it requires stewardship from the sideline.
