Ade Ayonrinde's curator insight, July 22, 2013 8:32 AM

While Strategic Visualisation, Formulation and Execution appear to be the key focus of most Organisations, Communication of the Strategy in a clear and effective manner is essential. The very people who are supposed to execute the strategy need to understand it. Failure of executives to communicate their strategies could result in a dichotomy of the strategy-full and the strategy-less. The message is clear to executives; involve your employees in your strategy and communicate it or watch as those visions rapidy turn into nightmares.

Don Dea's curator insight, January 25, 2:06 AM

Without a deep and accurate assessment of their organisation’s culture, boards and management teams will find it very challenging to initiate and implement strategic change.

A company however big or small, cannot successfully implement corporate strategy without employees who believe in the mission and understand how to achieve it. As Louis V. Gerstner, former CEO of IBM once noted, “Culture isn't just one aspect of the game, it is the game.”
