Mark Flickinger on the AchieveIt Podcast: The Strategy Gap


In The Strategy Gap podcast, Mark Flickinger talks with Jonathan Morgan and Joe Krause of AchieveIt about strategic plan management. Building on the premise that this skill can determine whether an organization thrives or fails, this conversation focuses on:

  • Building a successful team in a tough labor market
  • Aligning team expertise through organizational phases
  • Formulating a laser-focused strategic plan while minimizing distractions

Mark addresses the "biggest challenge" for scaling organizations: deployment. He discusses the main ways that companies of all sizes can keep from losing track of a great strategy. Success requires setting strategy, ensuring alignment across the whole organization, ranking tasks by urgency and importance, applying discipline to ingrained internal processes, and measuring outcomes.
