Does your team know what strategy is? A survey of 400 managers by the Human Capital Media Research and Advisory Group found that only 44.3 percent of organizations have a universal definition of strategy, and less than half (46 percent) have a common language for strategy. This inconsistent understanding leads to confusion, inefficiency, and bad strategy. In fact, research published in the Harvard Business Review showed that 67 percent of managers surveyed believe that their companies are bad at developing strategy. When you couple these facts with research showing that the #1 cause of business failure, more than 80 percent of the time, is bad strategy, it makes for a dangerous combination.
