When Your Strategy Needs to Change

Short term strategic shifts cannot be avoided. Often times though, an organization defines a strategy and then sticks with it, without understanding how to make strategic adjustments along the way. Some reasons for strategy shifts include responding to external changes or adapting to internal business pressure or new capabilities.

Strategic shifts must always be aligned with the broader company vision, and adjustment type of actions can still help the organization realize the vision even amidst change. To leverage disruption to your organization’s advantage, keep the following six principles in mind. They require you to prioritize:

  1. Speed above perfection
  2. Flexibility above planning
  3. Diversification above optimization
  4. Empowerment over hierarchy
  5. Learning over blaming
  6. Resource mobility over resource lock-in
