  • 5. Strategic Thinking & Effective Execution JohnSpence.com Page 5 THE 4 + 2 FORMULA THE FOUR PRIMARY MANAGEMENT PRACTICES 1 = Not at all 3 = Poor 5 = Fair 7= Good 10=Superior/Excellent 1. Strategy: Devise and maintain a clearly stated, focused strategy: Whatever your strategy, it will only work if it is sharply defined, clearly communicated, and well understood by employees, customers, partners, and investors. 2. Execution: Develop and maintain flawless operational execution: You might not always delight every customer, but make sure that you never disappoint them. Winners consistently meet the expectations of their customers by delivering on their value proposition. Bad quality surely will hurt. 3. Culture: Develop and maintain a performance-oriented culture: One of the best indicators of being performance-oriented is the way you deal with your own poor performers. It is easy to reward good performers. What matters is whether you have the courage to get rid of poor performers. 4. Structure: Build and maintain a fast, flexible, flat organization: What really counts is whether structure reduces bureaucracy and simplifies work. Simpler and faster - such are the best goals for all organizations. THE FOUR SECONDARY MANAGEMENT PRACTICES 1. Talent: Hold on to talented employees and find more: Winning organizations pay great attention to finding, growing, developing, and rewarding very talented people. 2. Leadership: Key leaders are truly committed to the business: The research data clearly showed that the leadership effectiveness of the top executives, on average, influenced 15% of the variance in corporate performance, for better or for worse. 3. Innovation: Make innovations that are industry transforming: Agile companies that were highly innovative and able to anticipate rather than react to disruptive events in the marketplace, were always the winner. 4. Mergers and Partnerships: Make growth happen with mergers, alliances, and partnerships: Internally generated growth is essential, but companies that can also master mergers and partnerships are much more likely to be winners.

What do you need from me to deliver everything you have promised? 3. If you deliver all of #1, in addition to keeping you job, what would you like as a small reward? 4.

  • 9. Strategic Thinking & Effective Execution JohnSpence.com Page 9 WORKSHOP: IDEAS INTO ACTION Go back page-by-page and carefully look through the entire book. Compare and contrast your scores on the various audits and re-read any notes you wrote. What are the themes that emerge… the patterns? Look for any scores below a 7 as an area that needs improvement and anything in the 1-5 range as a serious problem that needs attention. The goal here is to really dig into these topics so you can take an honest look at the actual current state of your organization. This is a rare opportunity to take a critical look at how well your organization is truly operating and specifically what must be done to improve it. Take this exercise very seriously and push yourself to really understand what these scores and everything you learned today about world-class organizations could mean to your business. 1. Strengths What was the pattern of high scores? In what major areas did you seem to have as strengths, where you scored an 8 or higher across all of the workshops? 2. Weaknesses What was the pattern of low scores? In what major areas did you seem to have as weaknesses, where you scored a 6 or lower across all of the workshops?
  • 10. Strategic Thinking & Effective Execution JohnSpence.com Page 10 3. Key strategies for success Based on everything you have learned here today and your own personal business experience, what do you believe are the top strategies your organization must focus on to build and sustain success? What are the 3 - 5 most important ideas that will drive your organization’s future?
