INTRODUCTION

●Effective strategic leadership is the foundation for successfully using the strategic management process.

●Strategic leaders guide the firm in ways that result in forming a vision and mission.

● This guidance often finds leaders thinking of ways to create goals that stretch everyone in the organization to improve performance.

●Moreover, strategic leaders facilitate the development of appropriate strategic actions and determine how to implement them.

●Leaders can make a major difference in how a firm performs.

STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP AND STYLE

Strategic leadership: the ability to anticipate, envision, maintain flexibility, and empower others to create strategic change as necessary

  • Multifunctional task
    • Managing through others
    • Managing an entire enterprise rather than a functional subunit
    • Coping with change that is increasing in the global economy
    • Most critical skill: attracting and managing human (includes intellectual) capital

NOTE: Many examples of well-known CEOs are mentioned throughout the chapter to illustrate their leadership styles.

slide10

MANAGERIAL SUCCESSION

  • DEFINITION: preselect and shape the skills oftomorrow’s leaders
    • Internal managerial labormarket:opportunities for managerial positions to be filled from within the firm
    • External managerial labor market:opportunities for managerial positions to be filled by candidates from outside of the firm
  • This decision impacts company performance and the ability to embrace change in today\'s competitive landscape
  • Succession, top management team composition, and strategy are intimately related
slide12

MANAGERIAL SUCCESSION

Benefits of Internal Managerial Labor Market

  • Continuity
  • Continued commitment
  • Familiarity
  • Reduced turnover
  • Retention of “private knowledge”
  • Favored when the firm is performing well
slide13

MANAGERIAL SUCCESSION

Benefits of External Managerial Labor Market

  • Long tenure with the same firm is thought to reduce innovation
  • Outsiders bring diverse knowledge bases and social networks, which offer the potential for synergy and new competitive advantages
  • Fresh paradigms
  • Note: Opportunity cost for firms: Women as strategic leaders have been somewhat overlooked

key strategic leadership actions
KEY STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP ACTIONS
    • Establishing Balanced Organizational Controls

Controls: formal, information-based procedures used by managers to maintain or alter patterns in organizational activities

  • Controls help strategic leaders:
    • ● Build credibility
    • ● Demonstrate the value of strategies to the firm’s stakeholders
    • ● Promote and support strategic change
key strategic leadership actions1
KEY STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP ACTIONS
  • Establishing Balanced Organizational Controls
  • ●Financial Controls
    • Focus on short-term financial outcomes
    • Produce risk-averse managerial decisionsbecause financial outcomes may be caused by events beyond managers’ direct control
  • ●Strategic Controls
    • Focus on the content of strategic actions rather than their outcomes
    • Encourage decisions that incorporate moderate and acceptable levels of risk

KEY STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP ACTIONS
  • Establishing Balanced Organizational Controls
  • THE BALANCED SCORECARD
    • Framework to evaluate if firms have achieved the appropriate balance among the strategic and financial controls to attain the desired level of firm performance
    • Most appropriate for evaluating business-level strategies; it can also be used with the other strategies firms implement (e.g., corporate-level, international, and cooperative)
    • Prevents overemphasis of financial controlsat the expense of strategic controls

KEY STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP ACTIONS
  • Establishing Balanced Organizational Controls
  • THE BALANCED SCORECARD
      • ● Premise is that firms jeopardize their future performance when financial controls are emphasized at the expense of strategic controls
      • ● This is because financial controls focus on historical outcomes, and do not address future performance drivers
      • ● An overemphasis on financial controls may promote managerial behavior that sacrifices long-term, value-creating potential for short-term performance gains
      • ● An appropriate balance of strategic controls and financial controls, rather than an overemphasis on either, allows firms to achieve higher levels of performance

  • Traditional financial reports look backward
    • Reflect only the past: spending incurred and revenues earned
    • Do not measure creation or destruction of future economic value
  • The Balanced Scorecard identifies the factors that create long-term economic value in an organization, for example:
    • Customer Focus: satisfy, retain and acquire customers in targeted segments
    • Business Processes: deliver the value proposition to targeted customers
      • innovative products and services
      • high-quality, flexible, and responsive operating processes
      • excellent post-sales support
    • Organizational Learning & Growth:
      • develop skilled, motivated employees;
      • provide access to strategic information
      • align individuals and teams to business unit objectives

.

the four perspectives apply to mission driven as well as profit driven organizations

Answering these questions is the first step to develop a Balanced Scorecard

  • What must we do to satisfy our shareholders?
  • What do our customers expect from us?
  • What internal processes must we excel at to satisfy our shareholder and customer?
  • How must our people learn and develop skills to respond to these and future challenges?

Financial Perspective

Customer Perspective

Internal Perspective

Learning & Growth Perspective

  • What must we do to satisfy our financial contributors?
  • What are our fiscal obligations?
  • Who is our customer?
  • What do our customers expect from us?
  • What internal processes must we excel at to satisfy our fiscal obligations, our customers and the requirements of our mission?
  • How must our people learn and develop skills to respond to these and future challenges?

why measure
Why Measure?
  • To determine how effectively and efficiently the process or service satisfies the customer.
  • To identify improvement opportunities.
  • To make decisions based on FACT and DATA
measurements should
Measurements Should:
  • Translate customer expectations into goals.
  • Evaluate the quality of processes.
  • Track our improvement.
  • Focus our efforts on our customers.
  • Support our strategies.
targets
Targets
  • Targets need to be set for all measures
  • Should have a “solid basis”
  • Give personnel something for which to aim
  • If achieved will transform the organization
  • Careful not to develop measures/targets in

a fragmented approach:

i.e. Asking people to increase customer satisfaction has to be backed up with the knowledge, tools, and means to achieve that target.
