A Simple Tool That Gets Results  [FREE DOWNLOAD]

Do you have a way to bring your strategy to life on the playing field?  Do you know what play is next?  Are you flexible enough to react to new opportunity and quick to respond to competitors?
Just as offensive coordinators and head coaches in football have the playsheet in hand during the game, executives need a way to drive their strategy forward in the marketplace.

According to a poll I conducted in late 2014, overwhelmingly, the challenge that keeps you up at night is executing your strategy to deliver the expected results.  What’s more, you’re also balancing demands at home with demands at work – a tall order for all of us.

Thus, it’s truly the how that’s most daunting for most.

You need a simple, one-page playsheet [FREE template download] to organize and track what needs to be done to win in your marketplace.  Not only would a playsheet drive the results you’re after at work, but it would also release you to be present at home with your family.

Here’s how it works:

  1. At the top of the template, there is area to insert your big “Moonshot” for 2015 – could be a revenue target, growth target, etc).
  2. The chart provides you an area to identify key strategic themes across your business (across function) that are necessary in order to support you delivering on the Moonshot.  In example, I’ve inserted the following themes: innovation, expansion, leadership development, etc.
  3. Each strategic priority supports the theme, and should identify a specific organizational target that needs to be met.
  4. Each of the performance targets fields that follow the strategic priority should be used to identify the specific cross-functional targets needed to meet that particular strategic priority.  Each target should be specific and have an executive team owner assigned.

The next steps are to build the functional level initiatives in a similar format for each executive to drive with their teams.  Finally, implementing an operating rhythm that provides a platform for the team to report, review and identify gaps in performance is vital.

I’d love for you to report back on how the playsheet is working for your organization.

It’s been said that the present is a gift.  That’s why they call it the present.

Perhaps having a one-page playsheet will allow you to be there.
