Successfully implement your quarterly priorities

A strategic problem many businesses face is they fail to successfully implement their quarterly priorities. Many companies have clear strategies for business growth, yet they still fail to grow. Why is this? The answer is usually poor implementation of their strategies.

Successfully implement your quarterly priorities


Is your current 90 day plan giving you the optimal returns?


At The Alpha Group we make certain that you plan how to successfully implement your business growth priorities and achieve real growth.

So, how does this happen?

Easy, its a six step-process using the power of the peer-to-peer advisory board.


Firstly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify what is your strategic problem.

Many companies claim to have a strategy for business growth, yet they fail to achieve substantial growth. Why is this? The answer is usually poor implementation of your strategy. Successful implementation of your growth strategy is one of the biggest challenges facing you, the Business Leader.

There are three factors for successfully implementing your FastGrowth™ Strategy:

1 Identify your projects

Break down your strategy into manageable projects

2 Plan your projects

Scope out and plan each project

3 Generate High involvement

Involve all your people in key projects


Secondly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify your key FastGrowth project.

Knowing your strategic problem lets you select appropriate FastGrowth™ Projects to address this. We recommend to you that they select six projects for the next 12 months, with two projects running concurrently for the first four months, priorities 1 and 2, then the next two projects running concurrently for the next four months, priorities 3 and 4, and finally the last two projects running concurrently for last four months, priorities 5 and 6.

By laying out the six projects in this way, this shows you the full scope of what they can acheive in a year, together with a clear framework for achieving this.

From this you select the one FastGrowth™ project that you want to successfully implement by involving all your people.


Thirdly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you plan your key FastGrowth™ project.

you find it is helpful to use this template to plan your project.

Using a bar chart to plan your FastGrowth project

A project needs a plan that summarises what needs to be done, when it needs to be done and how the different tasks that make up the project interrelate. A good way of showing this is through a Bar chart.

Break your project down into a series of tasks - ideally between 8 to 10 tasks. List each task on a separate Post-it. Think about how long each task will take with the resources you have allocated and add that time to the Post-it. Shuffle the Post-its around on an sheet of paper to show the relationships between the tasks and the sequence that they need to be carried out in. Use lines or arrows to show the relationship between the tasks.

Transfer the information to a Bar chart showing the tasks, eight weekly divisions, and the person responsible for each task.

Check to see that the completion date of the last task matches your planned end date – if not, something has to change – either the planned end date or the resources you are allocating! Something unexpected usually occurs in projects so build in some contingencies – your risk analysis carried out earlier will help you identify what needs to be considered.


Fourthly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you decide the key measures for your FastGrowth™ project.
