In this episode, we discuss a simple proven approach to convert your strategic decisions into a blueprint for action rapidly. This is a critical step because for a strategy to be implemented, it needs to be understood by those that are to implement it. Why certain choices of direction have been made must be clear.  Yet if you leave it at that, most people will have a hard time reconciling how to get from where they are to where you want them to be. The high ideas of strategy will die on the “messy” realities of everyday issues. For everything to come together, the high level strategy has to be articulated into a blueprint for action drawn with the participations of implementers. The blueprint will identify initiatives in detail: what, by whom, when, milestones, etc. and check those tasks against the organization’s ability to deliver them with existing capacities.
