Most enterprises regard strategic assessments, analysis, and forethought as mainstays in crafting a successful business strategy to gain a competitive edge. However, ignoring the organisation’s core competencies and the intangibility that people, culture, and psychological factors bring in is often ignored. This leads to gaps in strategy formulation and impedes an organisation’s ability to execute strategies. A consequence of this is a gap between strategic intent and outcomes.
On average, 44 percent of strategic initiatives are unsuccessful, with $109 Million wasted for every $1 Billion invested in strategic projects and programs. (source: The Project Management Institute)
