Transcript: A Harvard Business Review Article Interpreted by Rosie Cipollone Unite Your Senior Team Establish Common Ground Establishing Common Ground "You can not truly enter any world for which you don't have the language." Ludwig Wittgenstein Applying this to business means, in order for you to enter the world of future strategy, you must have executives that have common definitions and assumptions around 3 key questions. What's your Business? Determining What Business You Are In Leadership within a company can often have very different views as to the boundaries of their business. This is especially true as industry boarders continue to blur. Having both a too narrow view or too wide a view can result in an organizations demise. Thus leadership must be in line with the overall sense of the business to achieve success. What's your Innovation Typology Deriving your Innovation Typology There are various categories of innovation. Some examples would be "disruptive innovation" or "innovations that expand access to nonusers". Having a shared interpretation of what innovation looks like for the company is very important. This can be achieved by assessing market size, identifying potential targets for acquisition and doing a review of the competitive landscape. What's your Growth Gap Judging your Growth Gap In the process of planning for the future it is imperative that a company know their growth gap. A growth gap is the difference between revenue goals and what the currently is likely for the business to deliver without major change. This is of the utmost importance and is influenced by numerous variables including competition, cost of inputs, marketplace demand, the performance of new ventures, etc. Having an interactive visualization of this data would be the most effective way of presenting it. Using a visualized presentation is not to force leadership into making firm projections on future growth, but to instead to be more exact about their assumptions. Exposing Misalignments Importance of Exposing Misalignments Managers often stay silent and defer to upper management leaving opposing options under the surface assuming someone else will speak up. They stay silent without agreeing or participating, known as social loafing, to mask conflict. You can help reduce the likely-hood of misalignments by creating groups for open discussions, including Optimists and Pessimists. Members of each group can then defend their stance with no one being allowed to pass and requiring that they defend their belief. Doing this exercise can reveal a wide range of views on any particular subject. This then leads to focusing on getting people to modify their positions in order to reach full alignment. Getting Physical Lets Get Physical! Roundtable discussions to obtain consensus is another step in uniting your team, but these exercises aren't usually effective in creating alignment. Having leadership physically engage in the discussions, as opposed to sitting in a room debating will help move the team towards alignment. By forcing leadership to engage and state their views in an open forum and persuade others towards their view, they are more likely to develop powerful new growth strategies within the company. Overview Overview Without open/honest communication, smart business decisions within an organization are not likely to happen. The hard questions must be brought to light with pros and cons from both sides. Developing leadership dialogues to establish a foundation of common understanding while exposing misalignment and learning from experiences is the only way to ensure the success of any company.
