Advancing an organization in this turbulent business environment poses major challenges for even the savviest leaders. All too often, strategies and initiatives that looked good during planning end up mysteriously snarled in a tangled web of persistent organizational problems ("strategic gridlock") during execution. That’s when the seemingly good plan goes bad. Drawing on two decades of business expertise, Pamela S. Harper uses case studies and in-depth analysis to point out seven of the most common "roadblocks" that routinely snarl business performance. She then leads you step-by-step through each of the underlying beliefs and assumptions that make such roadblocks possible. Through various "Checklists" and "Frequently Asked Questions," Harper enables you to identify which roadblock(s) is stalling your organization’s results. Preventing Strategic Gridlock™ will show you how to U.N.L.O.C.K.™ your company from the Strategic Gridlock Cycle so you can achieve the high-performance results that today’s high-pressure environment demands.
