Let's rethink the way we implement strategy

Rethinking strategy implementation
Copenhagen 9. June 2020

Old-fashioned, manually tracked implementation methods result in three out of four strategies failing to reach their goals.
That’s $3 million wasted every minute. The time has come to end years of stagnation in the leadership suite.

Theme 1: Taking Strategic Leadership Seriously

$3 million is wasted every minute due to failed strategy implementation. It’s time to take strategy implementation seriously and apply the leadership necessary to get things done. That means building a sound bridge between strategy and implementation and, having done that, lead the crossing of the bridge towards successful strategic performance.

Bridging the gap between strategy design and delivery
Tahirou Assane Oumarou
, Director of Operations for the Brightline Initiative

Practices can change, business models are disrupted, technology evolves, but principles do not change. They are the soul of strategy design and delivery. Brightline has crafted a set of 10 guiding principles to help leaders shrink the costly and wasteful gap between strategy design and delivery. These principles are for us both a moral rule and a basic truth.  

If we want to make our dreams of a better world come true, we need to understand that the line that connects strategy design and delivery is blurred. Let’s replace it with a Brightline!

Transforming against crisis 
Dr. Qingqing Han
, Head of Partnership for the Brightline Initiative

A hack that exposes millions of customers’ data. A major holiday product launch pushed into next year. A chairman’s immediate dismissal for misconduct. An employee’s misstep gone viral. The circumstances of a corporation’s next major crisis vary, but its appearance is inevitable.  Less inevitable, however, is a company finding a positive outcome in the wake of a crisis. While of course, no leader would ever wish for the crisis, it doesn’t need to spell disaster. On the contrary: the Brightline research on "Learning from Crisis Mode" suggests that it’s possible for certain opportunities to emerge from crisis and have a lasting positive influence on a business. A crisis can bring out the best in your staff, unearth improvements in processes, and reveal new business opportunities, all of which can—and should—influence post-crisis strategy design and implementation.

Theme 2: Modernizing strategic leadership through digitalization

The time has come to end years of stagnation in the leadership suite and modernize it through technology. Three out of four strategies fail to reach their goals, and the approach to strategy implementation in boardrooms and executive suites is often old-fashioned, manual and not tangible. How can we succeed with digital strategies?
