Involve a larger part of the organization in a discussion on how the company is doing on strategy and execution. Like the annual employee survey, organizations should take the pulse around the most important strategic topics. Such a survey provides powerful insights about how well your employees — the people who know the company best — think it is positioned for success, how well they feel they are delivering on the value proposition, and how effectively they are able to connect their individual work to the strategy of the organization. Besides telling you what people think the company’s main challenges are, it also helps create a climate where such questions can be raised… and are raised. Many organizations have used our strategy profiler that takes just a few minutes to complete, and yields very helpful insights.
