Bridging the gap between strategy and execution can often be troublesome. Conflicting ideas, unclear communication, and misunderstanding all hamper the team execution and the organization.
After studying effective teams and their strategy, we noted the top 3 factors that make these teams operate so effectively and successfully.
1) Identify critical goals
Everyone in an organization has their share of tasks and priorities. However, while working in a team, it is essential to prioritize all these tasks keeping in mind the bigger picture and organization goals.
Increasing customer and supplier loyalty and enhancing revenue are essential goals, and all tasks associated with these must be prioritized. Everyone should understand the importance of focusing on crucial goals.
2) Measuring progress
A system should be developed that measures and monitors the progress of each team member and gives them direct feedback on how their tasks affect the team and organization. Inputs from team members should be taken into consideration as well.
This measure of progress should be done every week instead of quarterly or monthly. This will provide scope for immediate adjustments and improvements, which will take everyone closer to the goals set by the organization.
3) Holding each other accountable
All team members should be aware of their responsibilities. It is the duty of the leader to create a positive atmosphere and make everyone understand that they are accountable not only to themselves but to every member of the team.
Reviewing progress assessing the team and individual performance is necessary for effective team execution. It is what makes or breaks the business.
Effective execution is what helps you build your business bigger. And team execution is very essential.
