Strategic Facilitation - How to Handle Hard Trade-off Choices

Strategic Facilitation - How to Handle Hard Trade-off Choices

Success is a matter of succeeding at realizing your vision; failure is the opposite. Consequently, success and failure are two sides of the same coin. Strategic facilitation will help you favor success over failure.

Strategy is your methodology of choice, spelling out WHICH activities you want to perform, not HOW you are going to perform them; the HOW is tactical in nature. In that regard, the major airlines still need to learn the difference between efficiency and effectiveness from Southwest Airlines.

Strategy is at the heart of creating a competitive advantage and your choice of activities and the level of their execution determine if this advantage is sustainable or not.

Consequently, strategy requires hard trade-off decisions because in order to perform more of one function, you must give-up some of another. For example, you cannot strive to be a cost-leader and a high-end supplier at the same time.
