Thesis High level Results
The point I make in my thesis is this:
“If you multiply each difference by the amount and effect each employee can have on a companies Business, then you understand that even the tiniest misunderstanding in what Strategy means on a personal level can be very detrimental to the companies success.”
The Strategic Compass defines the effect each single individual can have on the results of a company. Managers and Directors should make getting this right their #1 HR priority.
When I started my MBA Thesis, I was Project Manager when HP was a Technology Company in motion. There was the merger going on with Compaq. I was interested to see if we really did understand the strategy our CEO Carly Fiorina was implementing and see if we really understood what she was trying to achieve. HP is using Management by Objectives since it was founded and we decided to use translation of the grand objectives to the day-to-day objectives as a measure.
