PREPARATION - we have to, but we prefer not to

PREPARATION - we have to, but we prefer not to

Good preparation, decisiveness and leadership increase the chance of success.

Look at the major cycling races - the Giro, the Tour and the Vuelta. The team leaders of the big cycling teams have explored the stages long in advance and determined the team's strategy.

Are you going to take over a company, are you going to launch a new product or enter a new market, are you going to renew your core applications, know that today 'almost' all change initiatives have touchpoints with digitization and require thorough preparation.

✔ What do we mean by thorough preparation?

Formulating a clear and unambiguous company vision and strategy, determining the organizational culture necessary to achieve the company goals, ensuring that digital and company vision + strategy are aligned.

Gathering in-depth knowledge of processes and data (operation), information systems and applications (technology), culture and structure (organization), control and management (management) and determining what the future should look like.

✔ Why is decision-making important?

Indecision - ''analysis paralysis'' - paralyzes organizations.

Leaders do not dare to make choices because they are not sure of themselves and of the people in the organization. They believe the weight of the entire organization rests on their shoulders and avoid making decisions.

"No choice is also a choice, but it is a risky choice."

Risky because decision making affects the entire organization and not just the leader.

No choice is choosing to leave everything as it is: the Status Quo Bias (William Samuelson and Richard Zeckhauser).

The Status Quo Bias = "It is holding on to the old..

The risk, the medium and long-term goals that are compromised, employees who are tired of waiting and choose to go down the road, and other undesirable events.

"Choose and Take Action" are two important steps in the decision-making process.

If these steps are not taken, nothing will happen and we will be back where we started - the Status Quo Bias has been reached.

✔ What kind of Leadership do we need?

It is not so much about the form of Leadership but about "Skin in the Game".

Skin In The Game (SITG) is, in my opinion, the willingness as a leader or advisor to take the risk for the decision you have made or the advice you have given.

As a leader you want / must know and justify what you are talking about, you want to do the right things at the right time.

You do not want / should not put the survival of your organization in the hands of a third party, of an implementation partner.

PREPARATION - do it, it is the foundation of success

PREPARATION - find people who can help you because you can't do it alone
