Defining and Delivering Measurable Value: A Mega Thinking and Planning Primer
Kaufman, Roger
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v18 n3 p6-16 Sep 2005
Mega planning has a primary focus on adding value for all stakeholders. It is realistic, practical, and ethical. Denning and then achieving sustained organizational success is possible. It relies on three basic elements: (1) "A societal value-added "frame of mind" or paradigm": your perspective about your organization, people, and our world. It focuses on an agreed-upon focus on adding value to all stakeholders; (2) "A shared determination and agreement on where to head and why": all people who can and might be impacted by the shared objectives must agree on purposes and results criteria; and (3) "Pragmatic and basic tools". This article provides the basic concepts for thinking and planning Mega in order to define and deliver value to internal and external partners. (Contains 4 tables, 1 figure, and 16 notes.)
