PERI Performance Management System

Is your plan a living or dormant document?

An organization executing a business plan or implementing a new strategy face the same challenge; How to deliver on the promise of the document. Most are created with a flourish of creativity and promise but fail to achieve desired results. Why is this?   As the military proverb states, no battle plan survives contact with an enemy; no strategy or business plan survives contact with reality. 

Why do plans fail?

When leaders and staff leave a planning session with hope and promise of success,  the question arises, why do so many fail? Their reasons are multi-faceted. The implementation does not occur in a new world but one built over time. Human nature clings to the comfort of what has worked in the past. People have built careers off of success in the old system and fear change. Examples like this and many others make an effort to implement great leading documents to become ignored and dormant.

If leadership has the determination to overcome this first obstacle,  the challenges of implementation face them. Problems include poor execution,  design flaws, and changes in the environment making them obsolete.  Leaders must keep a focus on all potential pitfalls throughout implementation. Symptoms of each are different requiring different responses as they arise. 

A living document increases chances for success.  

A living document keeps a constant focus on actions, behaviors, timelines, and outcomes from the plan and makes it part of the consciousness of the organization significantly increasing the chances for success.  Changes occur in many areas of an organization.  The anticipated execution and results change the capacity plan. Scorecards must adapt adding sections to compare actual results against expectations. The meeting structure must keep implementation and results in sharp focus creating an environment of open and honest discussions about progress. 


What is the cost of the inability to execute correctly?   

Costs are many. First, the plan fails to recoup the time, effort and resources from creating the strategy. The failure to realize the potential benefits or stemming the tide of poor results can cripple future potential. Finally, the inability to execute has a terrible effect on the effectiveness of leaders who attempt to implement. A capable performance management system turns the promise of the plan into success.
