The Problem With Vision December 15, 2009

Make no mistake – vision is necessary.  It is critical to developing a strategic approach to individual projects or overall business practices.  Unfortunately, many managers take the concept just far enough to feel powerless when visions do not turn into reality.  The frustration is understandable, and even palpable when a firm’s livelihood is on the line.

The problem with vision is that big picture goals do not in and of themselves comprise measurable or distinctly prioritized goals.  The problem with vision is that once you realize that the vision is not working out, it’s too late to change course.

In order to convert vision to execution, it is absolutely necessary to break the big picture into manageable, short-term goals.
