I have enjoyed reading the book as it is practical. My favorite parts are on building strategic intelligence and building strategic partnerships. It’s definitely my new guide.
It has been most exciting and rewarding time reading the book, Optimizing Strategy for Results. It is an excellent and timely piece coming at the high peak of a very unpredictable, volatile and ambiguous business environment. It is spot-on, clear, innovative and simple in illustrating this complex environment we refer to as VUCA. I found this book interesting, very easy to understand and very relevant.
Optimizing Strategy for Results offers a thorough, analytical assessment of the process of strategic planning. The book is divided into three segments – preparation, creating strategy and optimizing strategy – which allows a systematic approach for applying strategic planning in your organization. Each chapter ends with segments on taking action and key takeaways, which provides you with triggers to integrate these academic concepts into your planning process.
The reason many strategies fail is because they are fossilized – stuck in the time they were made, left behind by the emerging realities that shatter the assumptions they were based on. Indeed, strategies fail because they are also divorced from the reality on the ground of the prevailing organizational culture and talent mix that could energize or kill that strategy. In this book, the authors bring strategy to life, presenting it as a dynamic concept in constant dialogue with the changing environment and with the people who need to understand, own, and carry out that strategy. By emphasizing the need to constantly communicate with stakeholders and learn from the emerging issues of the day, the authors have given strategists their greatest chance yet at success.
Optimizing Strategy for Results is a terrifically written book that distills the complexity of organizational culture, strategy and individual aspiration into a clear path of organizational success. Handling the new normal of volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous ( VUCA ) environments takes a clear vision, set of values and purpose. Optimizing Strategy for Results will be a wonderful thought partner that helps organizations navigate these uncharted times and environments we find ourselves in.
