A successful organization with visionary leadership seeks to achieve business targets to sustain growth whilst managing aggressive competition, increasing regulation, adversity from interest groups and also safeguard and maintain an excellent organizational reputation, all at the same time. The temptation is to ignore long term sustainability and the organization’s vision and core values and focus purely on the short term benefits moving to tactical ad hoc reactive initiatives rather than strategic maneuvers. This can immediately impact on the organization’s reputation and have serious damaging effects on long term business endurance.
The organization that takes a holistic approach to strategy & planning and executes such plans according to ethical business practices will achieve its commercial objectives and exceed stakeholder expectations. Being recognized as the preferred partner to key stakeholders will result in the organization being invited to be a part of shaping the environment in which it does business.
