A Strategic Framework – Easy as PIE

Take a moment to reflect on your grand strategy for your team or organization.

Seriously, take just a moment to sit back and focus on what you plan to accomplish.

Arguably, that exercise has likely revealed that you are in one of three groups:

Group #1: You found this to be a fairly simple exercise as you have invested significant resources to create your plan. You have paid the price in time, energy, and intellectual bandwidth to create the plan. Congratulations. This is good news, but is likely destined for disappointment as you don’t have a process in place to execute the strategy.

Group #2: You’re thinking I have no idea what my grand strategy is, I’m just hoping to make it through the week. Unlike the first group, you too are destined for disappointment, but at least you may not understand what could have been accomplished. Thus, your disappoint will be muted compared to Group #1.

Group #3: You have invested to create a plan AND have a process in place to make it happen. You and your organization are the rarest of breeds.

A Framework to Get You Started

If you are looking for an approach to strategy and execution, consider this high-level framework. I created it and have used it with many clients to help them, Plan, Implement and Evaluate organizational strategy.

The approach, called the PIE Chart, is simple, but not simplistic. Watch this five minute video to get you started.

Collision of Autobiographies

In the United States alone, some 94% of annual car accidents (over 2 million of them) are the result of human error (U.S., DOT). This staggering statistic is a huge catalyst for the self-driving car movement.

I’m cautiously optimistic that self-driving vehicles will save many lives in the future.
