Your organisation's planning functions operate in silos, leading to a disjointed plan.

As an organization scales, it needs to slowly decentralize its planning and performance management.  This is a natural progression as each team chases its own specific objectives and needs to align it’s planning to those.  In an ideal situation, these different planning functions are all pushing in the same direction and add up to a bigger picture that represents the totality of the business.

However, that doesn’t always happen.  Often, planning breaks into silos that don’t interact with each other – leading to misalignment and a range of other challenges.

Why does a disjointed plan slow growth and create internal conflict?

When your planning is disjointed, you’ll find that your various teams work across purposes as they all seek to optimize for their specific objectives.  Instead of finding ways to collaborate and co-create, teams become internally focused and forget about the bigger picture that they’re a part of.

From the organisational perspective, this results in unnecessary duplication, sub-optimal resource allocation, and a confusing public-facing persona for customers.  

The imbalances that are created can be really damaging to your long-term potential and make it that much more difficult to grow and scale your operations.

Executing a highly focused and aligned plan across all your units is a superpower that can take your organisation to the next level.  But it doesn’t just happen on its own.  You need to build the systems that enable it at scale.

Workforce Attrition Modelling

When you’re embarking on a long-term mission with your company, one of the most common challenges that you face is the impact of staff turnover.
