Your Next Best Step
To Iterate® is to take the next most intelligent step from here, learn from it, and repeat. If you run a management team, that's exactly what you need them to do: constantly learn, constantly adjust, and never stop moving your organization toward its goals, a step at a time.
When they fail to do this, you get silos, infighting, and waste.
When they succeed, you get a team that's fast, flexible and focused - one that responds quickly to issues, shifts resources intelligently as things change, and keeps an eye on priorities and results.
five key practices
High performing, highly flexible management teams differ from each other in many ways, but they do have something in common: The Five Key Practices of Iterative Management®. Learning these practices and applying them within your own management team is the best way to increase performance, reduce stress, and position your whole organization for success in an ever-changing future.
at every level
If you're an executive overseeing middle and/or senior managers, Iterative Management® will tear down silos. Your organization will stop competing for your attention and start working together in pursuit of the goals you've laid out.
If you're a manager of middle managers, Iterative Management® will increase results-focused collaboration across your organization. You'll get out the business of refereeing turf wars and into position to drive the higher level output your leadership demands.
If you're a manager of front line supervisors, Iterative Management® will help your team coordinate their output and make better forecasts. You'll have better information to bring to your management and a team that's better equipped to deliver on your commitments.
A Practical Approach
Iterative Management® isn't about abstract theories. It's an operational approach to running a management team that keeps the organization on track and coordinated. It's how the highest performing organizations are managing themselves today, even though they don't all realize it! To run a fast, flexible, focused management team, you need practical action steps, not abstract theories.
