Developing Strategy-Execution Intelligence
Traditionally organizations and PMOs have aspired to evolve by implementing various maturity models. The lesson learned from various maturity model implementation is that, although it sounds like a common-sense progression, each organization is unique with its own context, culture, and politics and it is hard to implement and more importantly adopt and practice by-the-book aspirational best practices in the real-world complexity of today’s DANCE-world. You can have all the check list practices, but it does not mean they will work in the ever-changing DANCE context. In other words, you can be mature, but that does not mean you are smart and agile to survive the DANCE and disruption.
This book proposes and describes how to develop Strategy-Execution Intelligence in each of the areas of the DNA. Each of the seven elements of the DNA chapters ends with the list of questions and approach of how to develop intelligence in that particular DNA element.
Also, the book introduces a Strategy-Execution Continuum, a roadmap to plan the evolution of your organization or PMO. This continuum has been applied in many organizations in diﬀerent industries around the world. The original four stages of maturity models are based on Standardize, Measure, Control, and Improve. For today’s DANCE world, we have evolved these stages to Standardize, Measure, Learn, and Innovate. Learning and innovation are what truly sustain organizations, not merely impeccable control and improvement of the same processes. This continuum aims to bridge standardization and measure, which are about consistency and control, with learn and innovate, which are about capitalizing on the diﬀerence, failure, disorder, learning, and mutation.
