Shared vision may be the biggest stumbling block for strategy execution. And even more so for adopting great ideas that can build collective capability.
Recall the times when you learned something intriguing at a conference or workshop, or from a book, white paper or webcast. When you described it to co-workers, did it get lost in translation? Maybe the intriguing idea was shot down because its case study was in a different industry. Perhaps you found resistance because everyone was too busy. Most likely, you were swamped, found it too hard to pursue, and gave up on the idea altogether.
Think about grassroots endeavors, where a few people in your organization passionately pursued something that the rest of the organization didn’t buy into. Surely there were moments of progress, but in the long-run, slow adoption by the rest of Marketing put a damper on success.
