“Every system is perfectly designed to get the results it gets.” If you want different results, you have to change your strategies, organization, and operations. Sometimes you can do that gradually. Sometimes you need to turn around poor performance or accelerate things in the face of risk or an opportunity. Accelerating through those strategic inflection points requires step-changes in strategy, organization, and operations, carefully synced together.
Incremental changes won’t get you where you need to get to. You’ll need step changes. When you do, remember that any step-change to your strategy, organization or operations impacts the other two. That’s why strong planning, communication, and follow-through can make such a difference.
