Activity-centered and results-driven strategies aim at enhancing an organization’s competitiveness.
Activity-centered programs are inefficient since they do not aim at achieving specific results, are too large and diffused, are based on delusional measurements, and are established by external consultants instead of operating managers.
Results-driven tactics are effective since they are specific to accomplishing measurable goals, are introduced systematically to satisfy known needs in the organization, and their frequent reinforcement accelerates the achievement of desired change.
Result-driven strategies identify specific targets and match resources, tools, and action plans to accomplish them.
