Every business, whether it has five or five hundred employees is different.
The relationship between the business model, methods, systems, business owner needs, employee needs and the market makes every situation and relationship distinct.
"HOW A BUSINESS PLANS FOR THE FUTURE AND THE STRATEGIC ACTIONS IT INSTIGATES ARE KEY TO ITS SUCCESS".
THE STRATEGIC ACTION MODEL
Initially a business determines "where it is", it then develops plans - determining “where it wants to be” i.e. strategic intent. If the business doesn’t quite make its projections then the difference is strategic drift.
The question “Why some businesses achieve their strategy and others don't” prompted the HR Coach Research Instituteito undertaken an investigation into the gap between strategic drift and intent and how many businesses actually achieve their intended strategy.
The Strategic Action Model was the outcome!
The HR Coach Research Institute is dedicated to
researching and understanding business trends
and Human Resources that impact on the agility
of organisations to implement sustainable
HR practises and business strategy.
Generally 4 key processes will help drive success:
Understanding the Business need today
Understanding the Business future need
Understanding how to link Strategy to Activity
THE APPLY PRINCIPLE
During the development of the Strategic Action Model insights into why some business achieved their strategy and others didn’t were identified, these were clustered into 5 categories and become known as the APPLY principle.
