1 Execution to die for... Overcoming the barriers to execution Execution to die for... The Wagon Wheel Way Operating System

2 Deciding what to do is often the easy part; making it happen is what counts … you get no rewards for intentions The Challenge 1.Understand the fundamental causes of poor execution 2.Identify the key barriers to making it happen 3.Match the barriers to a model that maps the complete operational process 4.Develop counter-measures to each of the barriers identified

3 Deciding what to do is often the easy part; making it happen is what counts … you get no rewards for intentions 1.Understand the fundamental causes of poor execution Planning and Execution are regarded as two totally separate activities Too little time is spent analysing the implications of the Plan Too few people are involved in developing the Plan Too much time wasted on Mission & Vision statements

4 Deciding what to do is often the easy part; making it happen is what counts … you get no rewards for intentions 2.Identify the key barriers to execution Deficiencies in Planning:13 Deficiencies in Execution:14 Deficiencies in Monitoring, Measuring & Adapting: 6 Deficiencies in Revising: 3 TOTAL:36

5 Deciding what to do is often the easy part; making it happen is what counts … you get no rewards for intentions 3.Match the barriers to a new operational model The Wagon Wheel Way Operating System THE CRITERIA Universal in its application – an open system Separates this is what we are going to do from this is how we are going to do it Demonstrates the inter-dependency between a) planning, b) execution & c) monitoring, measuring & adapting Simple, Memorable, Dynamic & Practical

6 How the Wagon Wheel Works 1. The Hub This is what we are going to do 2. The Spokes Link the Hub to the Support and Enabling Functions 4. The Metal Band Represents the resources required for execution - the Enabling Functions 3. The Wheel Rim Represents this is how we are going to do it - the Support Functions

8 Step 2 2.Attach the spokes to the Hub of the Plan Barrier No. 7 The implications of the Plan were not sufficiently worked through by the planners

9 Step 3 3.Attach the wheel rim to the hub via the spokes – the implications of the Hub of the Plan on the organisations Support Functions Barrier No. 8 Insufficient time was spent planning before moving to implementation

10 4.Reinforcing the wheel rim with the metal band – the Enabling Functions – Human Resources & Finances – People & Money Barrier No. 9 The implementation of the plan required changes in the current organisational structure that management were not prepared to make Barrier No. 10 The planners underestimated the costs of implementation Step 4
