Challenges in implementation
Formulating a good strategy is difficult, but executing it is even more so. After all, how can you test the potential effects of your strategic choices on your business and IT operations before implementing them? You’ll also need to know what the impact will be on your organization, how it will affect your ecosystem, which change initiatives you need to line up, and how to plan it all in a flexible manner.
To implement strategies effectively, you’ll also need to know how to ensure that everyone in the organization understands the strategic direction – and how to act accordingly. Managing all of these variables is a difficult process all on its own, which is where BiZZdesign steps in to assist VPs of strategy.
