in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

An organization’s health results in part from its ability to renew itself faster than its competitors.

Researchers from McKinsey & Co. use a process called the “five A’s” to build a competitive advantage.

1. Aspiration: Where do we want to go?

2. Assessment: How do we benchmark and measure our readiness for change?

3. Architecture: What kind of framework should we have in place to get where we want to go?

4. Action: How will we manage our journey?

5. Advancement: What’s our plan to keep moving forward?
