The focus of this step in the strategic transformation process is to optimize performance by managing, evaluating, and modifying transformation to achieve quick wins and accelerate time to results.
Often, companies wrongly believe that the last step in the transformation process is execution. But once executed, the transformation must be carefully managed until sustainable, normalized performance is achieved. And even then, issues and events happen that require fine-tuning.
It's definately not a "build and forget" process. To sustain success, the Strategic Leadership Team will need to meet at regular monthly intervals throughout the year. And at least once, preferably twice, a year the transformation will need to be evaluated and possibly modified to maintain success.
