The Six Questions

Relevance - has anything changed inside or outside the organization, so that we need to change our Objectives or Value Proposition?
Alignment – do we all agree with our Objectives and Value Proposition? Are they in alignment with the external environment and our team?
Capabilities - do we have the required capabilities to execute?
Results – are we getting the results we want?
Progress – are we making progress on our Initiatives? Are our Key Activities performing adequately?
Plan – what are we going to do next? (New Initiatives)

Key Activities & Processes - What do we do every day?

Strategic Initiatives are projects that increase the capability of the organization. Initiatives close the gaps identified in the planning process.
