Performance Management Alignment is key with aligning employee behavior with strategy
“Alignment” is key in which boils down to “First do the right things and then do the right things well”
That is, being effective is more important than being efficient. Organizations that are very good at doing things that are not important will never be market leaders.
Because the concept of work alignment to strategy, mission, and vision deals with focus and pursuing the most important priorities. The economics then fall in place.
How well the executive management communicates its strategy to managers and employees, if at all, remains a challenge
Most employees and managers, if asked to describe their organization’s strategy, cannot adequately articulate it. Many employees are without a clue as to what their organization’s strategy is. They sometimes operate as helpless reactors to day-to-day problems
If asked to briefly articulate their executive team strategy, how many employees could do it? Probably very few-maybe none
The consequence of this is critical. If employee teams and managers do not understand their executive teams strategy, how do we expect them to understand that what they do each week and month contributes to realizing strategy? #hotels #business #news #careers #jobs
