You donít win races by staying in the middle of the pack.

In today's ever changing competitive environment, it's no longer good enough to simply meet your business objectives. You've got to outperform the competition.

However, most companies, while adequately delivering on their commitments, fail to take the steps necessary to distance themselves from the rest. They are able to keep pace but are not the pace setters themselves. Average companies may turn a profit and even excel in some aspects of their operation but It is typically a lack of strategic direction or inconsistent execution that keeps these companies from being more than average.

When this continues over time, companies begin to struggle and lose momentum. The strategy and direction become less clear, leaders fall into siloed thinking, employees become disengaged and initiatives don't get implemented which further contributes to the downward spiral. Once struggling companies fall into this bottom tier, it's very difficult to climb out.

Forward thinking companies, however, not only meet their business objectives but they set the standards which others strive to emulate. These top tier companies set themselves apart by the unwavering focus on maximizing their return on investment of time, capital and resources. As pace setters, these top companies recognize the importance of clearly defining their strategic direction, leveraging talent and aligning the organization to effectively execute the strategy.
