A Strategic Map, which defines goals, choices and program priorities. It uses "highest common denominator" similarities across markets, for highest quality outcomes, whilst learning and testing for local differences, to provide value-added competitive advantage.
An Organisation Design (probably a matrix, for a transnational organization), which defines responsibilities of global, functional and geographic management, and which enables easy and fast communication between them.
A Success Model for the product/service, and a process for improvement. This aims to achieve fastest, highest quality action. A prime activity is benchmarking of internal and external processes and results.
A Deployment Program to gain employee commitment, which cascades projects directly from the strategic choices, and which assigns pre-defined targets, check-steps, measurements, responsibilities and timelines.
A Leadership Ethic, which clearly defines corporate values, and reflects the Leader's own value system. The organizational aim is to develop individual employees, reflecting unique needs, talents, and cultural differences.
