About the Webinar:
RYMA's September 16th Webinar was presented by David W. Locke. David reviewed strategy alignment as a goal, management tools for achieving strategy alignment, and suggested that leadership achieves superior strategy alignment. The typical strategy alignment tools: MBO, metrics, balanced scorecards, dashboards can be considered protocols, heavy weight protocols. Even the lightest of these are not used in startups. The heaviest get used in well funded, post-IPO companies. Leadership aligns. Leadership spans organizations of all sizes. When we lead, we get to know what specifically motivates our team members, so we can lead them, we can achieve alignment without the weight of strategy alignment tools. David reminds us lead.
