Execution Audit and Assessment
Strategic Execution Audit: The Leadership Strategic
Audit (L-SEA) is a mapping process that detects,
measures and describes Convergence and Divergence of
strategic direction and intent within an organization
and its leadership.
Analysis: The L-SEA
clarifies departures from intended strategy and the
drivers that may have been set in motion that that have
caused the divergence. It also identifies the drivers
that are supporting convergence.
L-SEA Process: The
Leadership Strategy Execution Audit assesses and maps
the primary leader(ship) strategy against the multiple
execution intentions and accuracy of those executing
against that strategy.
When the L-SEA detects Divergence (L-SEA-D) a plan of
corrective action and tracking is prescribed.
When convergence is
detected (LSEA-C), a plan is generated to sustain
convergent execution, capture its essence and build it
into the culture more robustly.
L-SEA-R (Recommendations) identify actions that can save
costly errors, perceived or actual decline in leadership
capacity, failures to meet sales and revenues targets,
product launch deadlines, marketing targets, technology
advance as well as potential damage to client,
stakeholder, investor and board relationships.
The L-SEA produces
tangible and critical information of immediate
importance which adds to an organization's strategic
Scenarios: The L-SEA reveals actual vs. perceived
execution momentum in organizations. The L-SEA-PS
creates multiple future scenario maps that can arise
from current assumptions and discovered direction. Back
to the point, this is no time for surprises.
The provision of Predictive Scenarios gives leaders and
organizations crisp mapping and visualization of
anticipated outcomes of perceived vs. actual direction.
This illuminates current and future state and the gap
analysis of any delta that may exist: from minimal to
significant to critical.
This provides clarity and a method to approach alignment
and re-alignment of strategic intent and execution and
metrics to sustain it.
The L-SEA Process Report (L-SEA-PR) provides a platform
and a process for recalibration, negotiation,
clarification, adaptation and accuracy ensuring aligned
leadership strategy and setting the metrics against
which it will be measured and tracked to stay on course.
When is the
right time, who is the right leader and what is the
right group to use the L-SEA?
The Leadership Strategy Audit can be applied at any
stage of a project or in the life cycle of a group's or
company's work. The situation and timing can be:
Proactive, Reactive or Urgent.
