RALEIGH, N.C., June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Chapter 14, Action Plan, marks the final chapter of BizIsSimple.Com. Author Chris Stern goes on in his pragmatic style to discuss challenges and hurdles of strategy implementation.
The chapter is divided in three sections. First, Stern provides insights into establishing and pursuing an action plan. He eludes that with today's business tools establishing plans should not be an issue. The problem is management providing the necessary resources so actions can happen as well as following through on their commitments.
The second section is dedicated to the use of Balanced Scorecards as effective strategic controlling tools and Stern reminds readers how easy it is to weave them into the digital cockpits of most Enterprise Resource Planning systems that are in use today.
In the third section the author focuses on the various ways people involved can kill a strategy. Stern comes up with a sequence of 21 rules malicious people typically utilize to pursue their own agenda and to capsize business ideas.
"Very often businesses get infected by what I call "Crookroaches". The term is a word play combining Crook and Cockroach and it means just that. You can have the best strategy for a business, but underestimating parasite drag from people working against you can cause it to fail. Hence not the best strategy is going to make it, but the one aligning your opponents as well. The frustrating conclusion is that strategies almost always are built around the smallest common denominators and not around the most promising success factors", says author Chris Stern, and concludes: "that is why mediocrity prevails in business."
