Mindset Drives Strategy Execution
Mindset is perhaps the least understood, but most important driver of exceptional strategic execution. It is the turbo-boost in the execution engine. Frequently undervalued and dismissed as soft or intangible, mindset delivers real business results.
In strategy execution, emotional commitment is critical. Employees will only adopt a new initiative if they believe that it is the right strategy. Traditional approaches to communicating strategy (such as road shows or PowerPoint decks) have proven notoriously ineffective for winning the hearts and minds of employees.
However, discovery-based, experiential learning, inherent in all BTS solutions, effectively builds emotional commitment and encourages discretionary effort. Through first-hand experience, employees realize the value of the strategy for themselves. The result: a strategy is adopted with a sense of urgency and purpose, maximizing business outcomes. Proven successful at many Fortune 100 companies, experiential learning is increasingly applied to drive the optimal mindset for efficient strategic execution.
Capability: Accelerate Mastery Through Experiential Learning
Successful strategy execution often requires new skills and capabilities among leaders and employees. The idea of building capabilities to tackle new business challenges isn’t revolutionary. But here’s the surprise: A few capabilities accelerate strategic execution and deliver a lot of business impact. This means that rather than engaging in the exhausting task of developing a generic and overly broad competency model, firms can get better results, faster, by targeting and developing a small number of high leverage behaviors that directly impact strategy execution.
During strategic execution, BTS partners with organizations to accelerate the mastery of the critical capabilities needed for effective execution. Customized business simulations and experiential-based solutions change high-leverage behaviors and enable effective strategy execution.
BTS helps organizations become better at strategic execution by leveraging custom strategy and business simulations to create a workforce that is aligned behind the strategy, has the right mindset to approach it with purpose and urgency and is able to quickly master the capabilities necessary to execute; E = AMC™.
