1. NORTH STAR EMBODIED ACROSS THE ORGANIZATION

Mind-set shift

From: “In an environment of scarcity, we succeed by capturing value from competitors, customers, and suppliers for our shareholders.”

To: “Recognizing the abundance of opportunities and resources available to us, we succeed by co-creating value with and for all of our stakeholders.”

2. NETWORK OF EMPOWERED TEAMS

Mind-set shift

From: “People need to be directed and managed, otherwise they won’t know what to do—and they’ll just look out for themselves. There will be chaos.”

To: “When given clear responsibility and authority, people will be highly engaged, will take care of each other, will figure out ingenious solutions, and will deliver exceptional results.”

3. RAPID DECISION AND LEARNING CYCLES

Mind-set shift

From: “To deliver the right outcome, the most senior and experienced individuals must define where we’re going, the detailed plans needed to get there, and how to minimize risk along the way.”

To: “We live in a constantly evolving environment and cannot know exactly what the future holds. The best way to minimize risk and succeed is to embrace uncertainty and be the quickest and most productive in trying new things.”

4. DYNAMIC PEOPLE MODEL THAT IGNITES PASSION

Mind-set shift

From: “To achieve desired outcomes, leaders need to control and direct work by constantly specifying tasks and steering the work of employees.”

To: “Effective leaders empower employees to take full ownership, confident they will drive the organization toward fulfilling its purpose and vision.”

5. NEXT-GENERATION ENABLING TECHNOLOGY

Mind-set shift

From: “Technology is a supporting capability that delivers specific services, platforms, or tools to the rest of the organization as defined by priorities, resourcing, and budget.”

To: “Technology is seamlessly integrated and core to every aspect of the organization as a means to unlock value and enable quick reactions to business and stakeholder needs.”
