Our solution

3HORIZONS’ Way to Execution (W2E) cascades down your strategy into actionable, short-term Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) and initiatives, connecting your strategy with your budget.

We work with your leadership team to understand barriers to change and equip them with the mindset, capabilities and tools to systematically remove them.

Our Strategy Activation Formula™ blends in-person collaboration and expert coaching together with technology, data and insights. This allows you to devise and deploy 12-month rolling budgets, coupled with a change management approach, which will ultimately allow your organisation to deliver on your strategic priorities.

How does it work?

01

W2E Workshops

Execution is all about people. So first, we gather the Minimum Viable Organisation (MVO), made up of the people most instrumental in deploying your strategic priorities across functions, hierarchies, and business units, hence breaking down organisational silos. We look at the different leadership personalities and styles to build a balanced mix of visionaries, pragmatics, as well as sceptics.

Through facilitated workshops and coaching sessions (in-person and digital) we help teams and individuals to overcome their immunity to change, boosting their capabilities and building a sense of shared ownership. Your team will co-create your 12-month rolling execution plan, while our consultants and facilitators oversee their work ensuring that the methodologies, frameworks and tools are correctly applied.

02

W2E Digital Toolkit

At the heart of W2E is our unique digital toolkit.

It demystifies the gathering and structuring of data, complex budgeting processes and multi-layer OKRs, incorporating them in simple to use, digital interfaces and tools, providing you with transparency and control over your organisation. It will also give you access to case studies and best practices that will help you overcome organisational barriers to change.

03

Data, Insights and Knowledge

The W2E toolkit is powered by curated insights and data that will allow your team, at any point in time, to monitor progress and benchmark it against the best in class.

By continuously diagnosing your organisational immunity to change, you will be able to implement adaptations to your execution plan.

04

Expertise On-demand

We leverage a wide network of industry and change management experts to provide situational, sector-specific knowledge and insights.

They will help you through your Way To Execution journey – from diagnosing your organisation to building sustainable capabilities within your teams and successfully overcoming barriers to change.

Your outcomes

Successful execution of your strategic priorities

Strategies often remain high-level and directional, failing to provide clarity of focus to allow teams across organisations to execute change in the short term. With W2E, we help you to bridge such gaps and see your strategic priorities through implementation.

Organisational Commitment and Alignment

While tools and techniques are important in driving execution and change, the ultimate goal is an organisation where everyone – teams and individuals – understands and commits to the strategic priorities. W2E achieves this by enabling everyone to see their actions and by successively cascading objectives across the organisation

Focus on what Matters

Companies and organisations are complex and it is often easy to get lost in multiple conflicting demands and priorities, blurring long-term strategic objectives with operational necessities. W2E helps you to focus on the most efficient, concrete, short-term actions to reach long-term objectives.
