Need a straightforward strategic plan for your team or organisation?

All it takes is six simple questions…

In @Patrick Lencioni’s book, The Advantage, he says that the best performing teams have extremely clear answers to six questions:

  1. Why do we exist? This is your team’s core purpose.
  2. How will we succeed? The strategies for success that you’ll pursue, to achieve your why.
  3. What do we do? The critical activities that your team performs, in alignment and support of your how.
  4. Who does what? Clear roles and responsibilities improve individual and collective performance
  5. How do we behave? The values that underpin your culture.
  6. What’s most important right now? Your goals and/or vision for the future.

We’ve developed a simple tool to capture and share your answers – our free Team Alignment Canvas.

Run a workshop and fill it in with your team.

Make a poster. Blow it up and stick it on the wall, so everyone can see it.

Attach it to your team meeting agenda. And check in with a different question each meeting.

Create alignment. Complete it for the team. And then repeat the process at the next level down, for each role, so everything aligns.
