In this article, I will begin by breaking down the first topic, so that at the end of this series of writings, we have a route that allows us to have the minimum guidelines necessary to define the strategic direction of our companies.
In other words, a methodological model to create a shared business vision.
Business vision: defining or redefining the business, values, and essential forces.
In the process of creating and building a shared business vision, the first basic questions we must ask ourselves are: What business are we in? what are the values that drive us? what are we really strong at? what are our strengths? - The answers to these fundamental questions have profound implications for the definition and formulation of the vision of the company, the area, and the individual.
Being in the "crisp production" business is not the same as being in the "food production" business. It is not the same to be in the business of "selling telecommunications equipment" as it is to be in the business of "solving telecommunications problems". Also, the core values and strengths are different when the core businesses are different.
○ A core business is understood as one that 'has critical mass, a leading market position, distinctive capability and technology, presence and potential for expansion and is a main driver of development'.
○ Core values are those beliefs that should guide our behavior and make us proud to belong to a human organization.
○ A core strength is a basic capacity for action, a distinguishing characteristic, on which every organization relies; it is a source of competitive advantage and an engine of growth and evolution.
The clarity and precision with which these three central aspects of organizational identity are defined or redefined depend on the clarity and precision with which the vision and mission of the enterprise, of the functional units, and of the people who work in them are defined or redefined.
