You are concerned about “brain drain” from your organization. Retirement age is coming to your experienced workforce. It takes years to develop the skill sets to integrate newcomers. There are new and growing customer demands for technology, responsiveness, and performance. You must dominate the market or the threat. You need a trusted advisor with no agenda but to help you succeed.
Your strategic plan is just “shelfware.” You want integration of financials, process, learning, technology, and customer value. You want to know if you’re winning or losing. You want your strategy to be integrated, actionable and a uniting force. You want all those words said in your offsites to actually happen. You need to get your team focused on present needs.
Your organization just doesn’t seem to be all pulling in the same direction to achieve the mission. None of the strategies or philosophies you have repeatedly preached actually make it down to the workforce. You hear quotes attributed to the leadership that aren't actually true and yet the “quotes” drive workforce behaviors. Everyone is just not on the same team.
You have metrics that don’t make sense or don't drive actions, workforce behaviors, or don’t tell you about future actions to take. Nobody wants to waste time sitting through another metrics meeting. You have been mandated to cut costs, in fact the money is already gone. You want defects out of your products. You must have increased value with less work. You have got to find a way to analyze large amounts of data.
