A few weeks ago I wrote a blog discussing how “What makes you tick doesn’t necessarily work for everyone else!”
The article focused largely on your concern for people, processes, and performance. It was about how your concern is part of your work approach and plays a major role in your professional relationships.
But what about your organization’s strategy for the new year? Are your company’s goals and strategy aligned to address one or more of those concerns (people, process, and performance)? In what order?
And what percentage of your energy will be dedicated to each of those concerns?
There’s a simple way to check your organizational goals against your most pressing organizational concerns. Simply ask/answer: In 2024, in what order will we focus our organizational efforts & resources?
- Organizational Process Alignment / Internal People Development / Performance Metrics
- Organizational Process Alignment / Performance Metrics / Internal People Development
- Performance Metrics / Internal People Development / Organizational Process Alignment
- Performance Metrics / Organizational Process Alignment / Internal People Development
- Internal People Development / Organizational Process Alignment / Performance Metrics
- Internal People Development / Performance Metrics / Organizational Process Alignment
Once you have answered that for your organization, you can now develop your list of to-dos to align those tasks with your strategic objectives.
Of course, you can also take the “bottom-up” approach. You can do this by looking at all of the priorities and tasks that you have already identified to determine how they define your organizational concerns.
