Strategy Execution: Shared Vision, Shared Values, Shared Victory
Zeb O. WATURUOCHA, Management Consultant, India

Shared vision
Shared values
Shared victory
Strategy is just an implementation process which can be of any form or shape. We talk much about shared vision but less of shared values (to pursue the particular shared vision) which vary from one shared vision to the other. I am of the opinion that if there is shared vision with commensurate shared values, the resulting implementation methodology will also be a shared strategy.

From Shared Value to Shared Vision
Tan How Choon, university lecturer, Singapore
Can anyone explain further the relationship of shared value and shared vision? Can we measure and/or evaluate it? Any example?

How to Measure Shared Vision and Strategy?
Mona Al Sheikh, Professor, Saudi Arabia
One way is by a CLIMATE SURVEY which addresses the engagement of employees and (lower) management in the strategic plan and in the decision making in the organization.
If every member of the organization knows about its vision and feels involved in creating the vision and in implementing the strategy, then a shared vision and mission exists.

Sharing Values and Vision
Dr. Albadri, Consultant, Saudi Arabia
I do not think the issue is sharing. It is ALIGNING them or achieving alignment.
But first of all: what value are you talking about? The customer value proposition or value as part of the organization culture? They differ. If we are able to identify which of them, then we can clearly focus on how to align them as critical factors.
However, coming to measuring is based on the intention of alignment, what our objectives, what do we want to achieve or what our ultimate result/s. Therefore, these initiatives are supposed to have KPIs where measures are embedded.

The Effects of Shared Values and Shared Vision
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
@Dr. Albadri:
- Please note the difference between 'shared' and 'sharing'. If you successfully ALIGN the values of employees and management then they become SHARED by all. This has nothing to do with 'sharing' anything.
- I believe that we are clearly talking here about the ORGANIZATIONAL VALUES, as part of the organization culture. And to what extent having shared values and a shared vision helps in the strategy implementation process.
- its hard if not impossible to measure values and culture directly in the form of KPIs or something similar. You are advised to use an indirect measuring technique such as a climate survey as suggested by Professor Mona Al Sheikh. Take a look here for more info on measuring a vision.
