I am often asked why the same great strategic initiative works for some organizations and fail miserably for others. My answer is always the same; your potential for success is directed mapped to the health of your corporate environment. Yet unfortunately I do not think I have met a company yet that consciously shapes and determines their corporate environment. Any meaningful transformation or business decision relies heavily on 7 key elements that determine the state of your corporate environment. Appropriately named The Group of 7, they are foundation, communication, culture, community, transparency, awareness and values. Whether you are implementing a new IT system, starting a Customer Experience Management Practice, or simply rolling out a new corporate policy, your corporate environment determines the level of effort as well as your potentiality of success.
In this report we explore each element in more depth and then we review the best way to get started depending on some key characteristics of your organization including your level of influence within your organization. Finally we cover some best practices that will optimize your efforts.
I hope you find this Insights Report enlightening and empowering, providing you with actionable steps to move forward. Please contact me directly in the event you are interested in discussing this further in context of your organization.
A comprehensive survey to assist you in assessing your corporate environment will be made available next week.
