Our economy is changing quickly. As a leader who must remain nimble and responsive, you don't have the luxury of spending 12 to 18 months developing a complex strategy that no one knows how to use. And you surely don't want to get an MBA just to translate your vision into a results-driven plan of action. What you need is a Strategy String. Tracy Corley's book The Strategy String: An Organizational Primer for Tying Strategy to Performance makes it simple for organizations of any size to develop and execute a performance-driven strategy.The Strategy String translates the concepts created by business thought leaders like Jim Collins, Michael Gerber, and Kaplan and Norton into easy-to-understand, ready to use modules that you can immediately put into action within your organizations. This book takes the best of the best, simplifies it, and combines it with easy-to-implement activities that time-starved leaders can get. What makes The Strategy String different?
- It's easy to understand. Ms. Corley has taught this course to hundreds of business leaders, and the concept is simple and easily digested.
- It's easy to implement. The Strategy String allows organizations to quickly put a strategy into action. Ms. Corley was able to take one organization from confusion to complete team alignment with the new strategy in just two weeks.
