Applying this Dimension
The Vision Dimension helps us apply principles to determine how we’re going to create value (creating good profit long term by providing products and services customers value more than their alternatives, while consuming fewer resources), including:
Developing a shared vision.
Identifying and closing gaps between today’s performance and what is possible.
Stopping/modifying activities that are not profitable.
Building the capabilities we need to make the greatest contribution.
The Importance of a Shared Vision - Unscripted
Leaders share an example of how collaborating to develop a shared vision helped everyone achieve better results.
Applying the five dimensions often requires reflection, asking questions, and discussion. Below are some prompts to get you started.
- For Everyone
- For Supervisors
Maximizing my group’s contribution to Koch’s long-term success.
- Do I understand my group’s and Koch’s visions and how I can best contribute to them?
- How do I use these visions to prioritize, make decisions, identify opportunities and innovate?
- What capabilities does my group need to add or improve?
These are the Vision Dimension questions from “Using the Five Dimensions to Identify and Close Gaps in Your Work”
Help each employee better understand and embrace the team/business vision (and associated strategies and priorities) so they can make the greatest contribution to Koch.
