Chief Executives, Financial Directors, Senior VPs, Chief Information Officers, Portfolio and Programme Managers, lend me your time and your ears.

Case in point: You think you have an organisational strategy and you are well down the road with transformation and change management, realignment, cost-cutting, mergers and acquisitions, and a plethora of magnificent also-rans up the wazoo. Yet, nothing seems to be panning out quite as you 'planned'. Guess what, even with a plethora of PowerPack decks to prove otherwise, you probably don’t have a strategy worth shaking a stick at. Worse still, instead no strategy at all, you might have a really bad strategy.

Case in point: Admit it, wherever you are in the world, if your strategic Data Warehouse or Business Intelligence project or programme isn’t in a mess, hasn't failed, or isn't failing,  then either your organisation is one of the lucky few, or someone in your organisation is not being entirely candid.

Right? Right!

The evidence is out there - I have seen many of the worst avoidable nightmares in IT and business history - and in these highly volatile and competitive times there is no margin for snow-jobs, obfuscation or procrastination. Get someone in who speaks your language and who will tell it like it is, without fear or favour.

Stop!

  • Don’t spend time on formulating bad strategy or using bad strategy.
  • Don't fool yourself that you are doing strategy when in fact you are doing anything but.
  • Don’t waste massive resources and patience on IT projects and programmes that will inevitably fail.
  • Don’t let hubris put you and your business at risk.
  • Don’t fall victim to Organisational Autism.
  • Recognise that formulating effective organisational strategy is not some kind of trick or treat game for highly-socialised two year olds.

Start!

  • Start to do real strategy.
  • Start to communicate effectively as coherent teams.
  • Start to get things right.
  • Start to act cohesively, professionally and responsibly.
  • Start to deliver what is being asked for.
