<strong>The</strong> <strong>Strategy</strong> <strong>Execution</strong> Research Report 2009 | 2010<br />

FAST FACT<br />

Of all managers, 24 percent<br />

do not receive any<br />

useful strategy information<br />

from o<strong>the</strong>r departments.<br />

02 Example finding : Managers lack information on <strong>the</strong>ir colleagues’ goals<br />

It’s crucial that you know <strong>the</strong> strategy priorities of o<strong>the</strong>r departments. It helps<br />

you to see <strong>the</strong> big picture and enables smooth-running, cross-functional collaboration.<br />

This requires information about goals and priorities to flow freely<br />

throughout <strong>the</strong> entire organisation.<br />

That’s how it should be. But our research shows that critical strategy infor-<br />

mation is often missing. In fact, just 17 percent ( ) is happy with <strong>the</strong> strategy<br />

intelligence received from colleagues. And 24 percent ( ) doesn’t receive<br />

anything at all.<br />

When we compare <strong>the</strong>se results with <strong>the</strong> o<strong>the</strong>r strategy communication fin-<br />

dings, we can conclude that sharing information on strategic priorities is one<br />

of <strong>the</strong> first steps you should take to improve your overall communication<br />

scores. Think beyond your silo and be part of <strong>the</strong> bigger picture.<br />
