Here’s a quick check for generating a simple, solid strategy. Is your strategy?

  • Understandable – Will employees be able to read it and comprehend your direction, even if someone isn’t there to explain it?
  • Implementable – Will something be able to be done with the strategy to create positive business results?
  • Aligning – Will following the strategy create a natural inclination for employees to work in a cooperative fashion toward a common goal?

Solid (and simple) strategies should generate three “Yes” answers to these questions. So how does your strategy stack up? Ideally it displays the appropriate level of simplicity.
