Welcome to the 38th podcast on the Corporate Strategy & Transformation study and we remain in week 4. As we teach in all the Executive Program studies, every study must begin with a top-down analyses. In fact, a rule of thumb is that a study without a top-down analysis phase is likely doing too much, lacks focus and possibly wasting time. This always turns out to be true.
In this podcast, and related article, we explain how benchmarking analysis, or what is also called benchmarking “best practices” or best practice analysis, should be used for the top-down analysis and why they are so difficult to manage on a real study.
If you enjoyed this conversation we will be so grateful if you jump over to iTunes and share a quick review. It helps more people find us.
Also a huge thank you for making “Strategy Skills” one of the most popular podcasts in the world for careers.
