How to Balance ‘Running Your Business’ and ‘Changing Your Business’ – At The Same Time

Strategy is about change and change management. What has to change to get from where you are to where you want to be. A solid strategy is a strategy that is designed to be executable. In many organizations 100% of resources are being consumed operating the organization as it is. Then, the extra work of changing the organization is piled on top. For this reason, top leadership must manage and provide guidance on what should change, in what order, and how quickly. Without this guidance, realistic allocation of resource cannot take place and will result in frustrated team members.

“But, how do you allocate resources over the next year, so you can continue to “run” your business on a day-to-day basis, AND, at the same time, begin to invest to “change” your business in pursuit of your long-term vision?

Our coaches work with your leadership team to develop an executable strategy for balancing short-term and long-term priorities. The end result is a roadmap of operating plans and change initiative plans to guide your organization during the next year.

Watch this short video to get a better idea of what we mean by “running” and “changing” the organization at the same time.

If you want to confidently lead your organization to performance breakthroughs, while managing the delicate balance of “running” your organization and “changing” it at the same time, check out our results-driven “Strategy Execution Program“.
