Here's Why People Don't Get Your Strategy

Here's Why People Don't Get Your Strategy | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

It would seem that you’re not a cool, sophisticated professional until you have a “strategy” or a “strategic” approach for everything. But are they all really “strategic?” Does everything need a “strategy?”

Recently Roger Martin wrote a piece on the Harvard Business Review blog titled “Why Smart People Struggle with Strategy.” He made a number of really good points, including the fact that, “Great strategy is aided by diversity of thought and attitude.“ A point that we’ve also explored in depth in a previous Forbes blog.But I think there is another reason why most people (not just the cool, sophisticated professionals) struggle with strategy. And it’s pretty simple. It comes down to clarity. There just isn’t a clear understanding of what it (strategy) is.

Pas mal du tout, j'avais acheté un guide PDF que l'auteur avait protégé avec un mot de passe (comme si cela empêchait de distribuer le guide) mais en attendant c'est chiant de garder le code quelque part à chaque fois que l'on veut lire le guide, ne facilite pas pour autant le piratage car il faut donner le code pour l'enlever du guide.

Developing a Knowledge Management Strategy Map | Peyman Akhavan, Reza Hosnavi Atashgah | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

"This paper is to discuss a knowledge management strategy map based on Kaplan and Norton’s strategy maps. In this way, KM strategies are reviewed first and then Kaplan and Norton’s strategy map concepts are introduced as an overall methodology for extracting KM strategy maps. The required context will be explored for deploying both knowledge creating and knowledge application strategies in the organization based on four balanced perspective of knowledge management considered in this paper. The authors determined these four issues as balanced dimensions in the knowledge management strategies. These balanced dimensions are intellectual capital, KM processes, value creating dimension and KM performance dimension. Finally, a list is determined that includes various measures for each perspective. The identified critical success factors of the four balanced dimension can also act as a guideline for KM experts in the organizations. This helps to ensure that the essential issues are covered during design and implementation phase of knowledge management strategies."
