Does your organisation have strategic clarity?

OK, this list of questions is maybe a little too business-like for some social institutions but it speaks to me and might to you:

Does your organisation have strategic clarity?

“5 questions to test whether your organisation exhibits strategic clarity:

1. Can the executive team simply and clearly describe the strategy without referring to notes (or powerpoint slides) aided only by simple sketches they make themselves?
2. Does the executive team all believe in and describe the same strategy?
3. Do the decisions and actions leaders make confirm the strategy, especially what is said ‘no’ to?
4. Does everyone in the organisation know the strategy and understand how their work supports it?
5. Does the organisation’s significant others understand the strategy (partners, clients, suppliers) and how they play a part?”

It should be a simple task to re-word these in the context of your environment and use these as a test for your strategic direction energy and the cohesiveness of your top management team(s).
