Principle #8 – Check ongoing initiatives before committing to new ones

Jun 25, 2018

Resist the temptation to declare victory too soon!

With the right governance, leadership, rigor, and reporting capabilities in place, you can regularly evaluate your portfolio of strategic initiatives. Add new initiatives in response to new opportunities, but first be sure you understand both the existing portfolio and your organization’s capacity to deliver change. Actively address any issues you discover. In the long term, strategic initiative management discipline — critical for effective orchestration of a dynamic initiative portfolio — will work only if robust assessment, support, and course correction are in place.
