- A clear strategic vision is not enough. It requires communicating to the entire company and understood.
- When a strategic vision is in place, it typically has little or no impact on the operating goals of departments and individuals. It must be tied to the goals and objectives of the individuals and departments concerned.
- Day-to-day decisions ignore the strategic plan. The plan must be broken down into objectives and initiatives that have a direct relevance to the day-to-day activities of personnel.
- Companies fail to collect the right information to monitor progress toward their strategic goals. It requires the right data gathered and input to provide effective measurement of objectives.
- Companies do not identify or learn from their mistakes. If an objective is not attained, it must be clearly understood why with initiatives created to modify the objective or change the approach.
