Action Management for the Next Business Upturn
Rethinking Your Value Proposition
By Dale Bruder, the Strategy Coach
The business of business is momentum. Business is a race. Business is action. Managing action challenges managers and owners to re calibrate thinking processes to account for the fact that every company goes through it's own stages of the business race. Each business and every manager encounters new competitive pressures, new global realities, and new customer demands constantly.
In this current position of the business sine wave (the term business cycle is a false descriptor) where the general perception is sluggish revenues; business managers must adopt action management techniques to sustain their competitive advantage.
Those who coast through this time will find their market positions severely eroded when the business wave rises again. Vitalized competitors and aggressive new enterprises with action plans are, today, taking over markets others established. To doze, to wait for the next upturn is to give away hard won market share.
Two distinct courses of action are required of companies that will thrive in the next rise of the business wave. The actions businesses must take are to either sprint or high jump to the front of the pack.
A sprint is an activity of short duration and low complexity. Outsourcing a single function is a typical sprint. So is functional downsizing or bringing a new product to market.
A high jump is a rapid action made to improve business performance. High jumps are highly complex, of short duration and are decisive. High jumps include a merger or an acquisition, a radical restructuring or a project aimed at corporate revitalization.
Both events require an investment of senior management commitment, two or more full time employees and allocation of specific resources.
The action plan for a Sprint covers these areas:
Action management is a skill that keeps companies, their
investors and owners, customers, employees and communities thriving
in any point on the business sine wave. Every competitive pressure,
global reality and customer demand becomes energy for action. Developing
the pragmatic thinking processes of action managers is a demand for
today's business environment and a requirement in future successes
