The Pyramid Approach
Defining How We Get There
The illustration represents the pyramid approach to moving from where you are to achieving the objectives.
The Pyramid is organized by three levels.
Level I – This level represents the noise, clutter and confusion that the company is facing when trying to drive change or create something new. This can include circumstances such as:
Lack of financial resources
People who are not supporting the team
Unclear vision or a clear vision that is not understood by others
Bureaucracy that steals time and causes frustration
Level II – This level represents the ideal situation if a solid strategy and implementation plan is in place and being well managed. An ideal foundation may include the following:
Complete peace of mind for the sponsor and the team
Goals are clear and totally shared
Success is being achieved
Underlying culture is changing
Behind This Level Are: four to eight major initiatives / recommendations that once in place will start propelling the company upwards to achievement. The initiatives can include major strategies such as:
Specific major project implementation
Shift in attitude and willingness to work as a team
New openness to change
Release of new energy and creativity
Marginalization of non team players so that they cannot damage the progress
Eradication of cynicism
Creation of new foundational process that underpins and sustains culture change
Improvement of service to all stakeholders
Improvement of operating efficiency and achievement of real productivity gains – “Doing more with less”
Fun for individuals
Fulfillment for teams
Institutional Wealth (Resources/Profit)
Level III – This level represents the peak of success – however the company has defined it. It also signifies that it’s time to look at what should happen next.
