  1. Your strategy isn’t measurable* – making its impact unknown and its progress invisible;
  2. Your strategy is mis-aligned – your front-line teams are pulling in multiple different directions;
  3. Your strategy over-reaches – it tries to be all things to all people and ends up lacking focus and specificity;

  5. Your strategy is impotent – it doesn’t drive enough people to take enough action to make a difference.
