Strategy execution management, at its core, is clarification of expectations and communication. Regular, ongoing communication is the key to any successful execution management system. Without frequent communication, any execution management system will certainly fail to meet the expectations of the organization.
The KeyneLink Process incorporates monthly progress meetings in order to significantly increase the execution management system’s chances for success in a company. During this ongoing activity, each employee and their manager meets monthly to review the status of goals, primary job responsibilities, core values and the working relationship between the employee and manager.
Research clearly shows that if managers and employees were to talk on a regular basis about how the employee is performing and how the two of them can improve their working relationship it would improve performance across the board. Then, if you document it and talk about goals that are linked back to company’s initiatives, it would improve even more. Regular Progress Meetings help ensure clarification and progress of expectations.
