We’ve all read the quote, attributed in one form or another to one of the greatest strategists of them all: former general and US president, Dwight D. Eisenhower. And it’s a sentiment we at Nova Reperta share wholeheartedly. Because short of the wisdom that can be gleamed in hindsight – in terms of managing performance, setting objectives and allocating resources – the best guarantee for the successful implementation of any strategy is the insight, intuition, and tenacity of the people charged with implementing it. Which is why we believe the process of value creation must start with the creation of engagement. By lending sufficient importance to personal stakes and motivations and translating objectives into actionable plans tailored to each stakeholder. It involves aligning all levels of your organization with a clear horizon and tangible goals. And along the way, it requires constant evaluation, encouragement and corrective steering. That is how success is won on the ground, inch by inch.
