Removing the barriers to business performance

As a consultant I don't believe I know more than managers I just see more examples of good and bad management practice.

A common barrier which when removed really does boost business performance is the lack of alignment between opportunities priorities plans and actions.

Here is how to fix it:

  1. Determine the business strategy identifying key opportunities.
  2. Work out the 3/4 key actions required to deliver the strategy.
  3. Allocate actions to individuals as priorities.
  4. Review how much focus people have on their actions monthly with brutal honesty Tip: Review their calendars where they spent their time. Be prepared for a shock...then do something about it.
  5. When you get alignment between 1 to 4 above the business performance will improve

Job done!
