From around the age of 8 to around the age of 15 I tried to master 1st position on the Violin. Apart from pulling off a few Irish jigs and simple classics I had to admit I wasn't very good at it. It was a frustration as I had such a passion for music and anything artistic ... painting, drawing, acting ... but I was always a semitone off when trying to get my fingers onto the string in the right place.(Damn it!).
Don't waste time on Strategy Deployment
Get it right 'First Time Through'.
We have a lot of experience implementing Strategy Deployment (Hoshin Kanri / Policy Deployment) from scratch.
I've done this in organisations like Smiths (Detection) and I've seen others going through the process of implementation, up-close and at a distance, in 3M & Phillips for example.
I've also seen others trying to create their own versions, and rules around it. People often ignore the wisdom that sits behind it. They subsequently shoe-horn it into their own world-view (& comfort zones) damaging the models efficacy in the process.
