Lesson Learned:

How a Beautiful Customer Strategy Can Go Down in Flames

Using the experience of several real-world lessons, I will present a story/case study of a cable company who had a brilliant strategy for completely revamping its new customer installation process - only to watch the execution on that strategy fail for a number of reasons:
1. The formulation of the strategy only minimally included front line input (particularly employee) - LEAD
2. The strategy did not translate clearly to specific actions, tasks and goals - PLAN
3. Program lacked proper incentives to achieve behaviors and results - THINK
4. Leaders didn't get total buy-in across organization – ACT

The story will include the lessons learned in each of the points of failure, and how proper methodology would have bridged the gap. In the end, the strategy itself was not fundamentally flawed, but its poor execution took a perfectly good strategy and obliterated it.
