Stephen Covey, author, personal and leadership development guru is coming to Perth for a seminar at Burswood on the 29th of May next week. For those of you who cannot attend and who have not read his books The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and Principle-Centred Leadership, I suggest you get those books and see how a business can be run effectively on core-principles.
At OTS Management we believe in placing our core-values squarely in the centre of our planning and business decisions. Our Vision Statement drives our everyday behaviours, moulds our culture and provides the parameters for our long-term strategic planning as well as our annual business plans.
When we facilitate planning projects for our clients we start with the end in mind and ensure that the client has an enunciated vision for the business and that it is quantifiable so that each goal and objective can be squarely measured as well as relate in a straight line from the vision those goals and objectives are designed to achieve.
Our model is that, from the Vision comes clarity of action. Your planning project should:-
- Clarify and Quantify your organisation’s Vision;
- Identify the key performance indicators (KPI’s) required to reach your Vision from the perspectives of the Customer, Key Business Processes, Financial and Owners’ or Stakeholders’ requirements, Innovation and Growth, and your People;
- From your KPI’s, derive appropriate targets for achievement over time, or goals;
- For each goal generate specific, measurable, achievable, results-based and timed action plans.
