Title A Dream with a Deadline

Subtitle How to turn a vision for tomorrow into a plan for today

Authors Jacques Horovitz with Anne-Valérie Ohlsson-Corboz

FTPH

 

 

[ BACK JACKET ]

 

Forget strategic planning. What every organization needs today is an inspirational vision of the future – a dream. But this cannot be an unachievable and open-ended fantasy. It must have a clear focus, and it must have a beginning and an end: in short, what you need is a dream with a deadline.

A vision needs to be collaborative, bringing in inputs from all sides and levels of the organization. It should be flexible and open enough to respond to shifts in our current fast-moving business environment. It must have a timetable, so that progress and success can be measured and rewarded. And it has to be realistic. A Dream with a Deadline tells you how to create such a vision for your company. Follow its guidelines and you will end up with a very specific and clear vision that can be visually expressed on a single page.

 

An invaluable companion for any manager who cares more about making the future happen than watching it happen.

 

 

[ FRONT FLAP ]

 

A book for dreamers – dreamers with the courage and commitment to make their dreams come true.

 

A Dream with a Deadline shows you how to clarify your vision of where you want to go, then it shows you how to get there.

 

It puts forward a practical approach that will help managers and companies to:

 

·         Clarify the company’s direction for the future

 

·         Balance long-term strategy and short-term delivery

 

·         Share the vision by communicating to everyone within the organization, at all levels, to obtain buy-in and ownership of the vision

 

·         Enlist the energy, motivation and enthusiasm of everyone to achieve results

 

·         Track and monitor the progress made and the results achieved

 

·         Be an effective and disciplined leader to make sure your actions and behaviour send out the right message

 

Use the book’s self-diagnostic exercise to reveal where your energy, time and resources should be concentrated to make your vision happen. Then start putting your vision into action, today.
