The business management needs to proactively diagnosing, planning, developing and assessing, uncovering hidden or loose coupled business logic to improve organizational agility.
The purpose of running a business is to create value for customers and their varying stakeholders. Organizational management is fundamentally an iterative cycle to design, build, scale and optimize business competency to solve problems and achieve the desired effect under specified performance standards. So it’s important to understand how to apply multifaceted logic to solve problems, implement ideas, and guide teams to make things happen timely, accelerate business performance smoothly.
Strategic logic is about leveraging the best information you can to scrutinize planning, uncovering all the options, thinking long term, not just immediate goals: Strategy scrutinization via logical reasoning usually involves early in the strategy management cycle, careful examination of numbers and types of stakeholders across the organization; numbers of external dependencies and continuously update. It’s about how to make dynamic planning in uncertain times, along with contingency planning around “what if” scenarios.
Estimate a range of potential impacts for each “what if” scenario; identify the drivers and trends underlying each scenario. The value of strategic scenario planning based on analytics logic is to uncover blindspots, gaps, critical risks in the strategic plan and make timely adjustments if necessary, and take logical steps to achieve capability based goals smoothly.
Good problem-solving scenario does conform to sequence-consequence logic, keeping the ultimate goals in mind: Traditional problem-solving in running business is often based on linear logic and industrial best practices. However, the problems today usually have many causes and can be very complex, you can’t figure out the exact cause and effect so the solutions are vague. Usually it takes nonlinear logic to handle sequence & consequence of business initiatives, and produce high performance business results in a consistent way.
Problem-solving management requires a variety of logic as the hidden clue, Logic enables us to uncover patterns and understand the interconnectivity of related issues underneath the surface. It requires that you understand complex problems from a cross-functional process perspective in some detail. A clearly-designed solution architecture helps to eliminate confusion, clarify solution logic, apply a holistic view, and take customized approaches to each problem, and make the continuous adjustment.
Leverage optimization logic to understand complexity, deal with complexity in order to convey “just right” simplicity: The goal of optimization is to eliminate unnecessary complication, lower cost, and fine-tune processes. From a learning perspective, cross-disciplinary knowledge is often important to unveil intrinsic-logic behind complexity for running a high-performance business. Technically, the simplified, end to end processes clarify business logic, and allow the organization to act in a coherent manner. Be goal-driven rather than restrictively following the process as you cannot choose between alternatives without being clear about your desired outcome.
You need logic to understand complexity and you need complexity to understand simplicity, clarify such a “simplexity” logic from design, decision or development perspectives. Business optimization is a continuous effort; so process improvement is more as a business management philosophy and a management practice to enhance business logic and coherence. As a matter of fact, the fit process is part of the holistic business system to drastically increase the probability of success with premium solutions; capturing both the individual’s development needs and organizational strategic perspectives, enable speed of execution and allow the organization to act in a coherent manner.
The business management needs to proactively diagnosing, planning, developing and assessing, uncovering hidden or loose coupled business logic to improve organizational robustness – able to recover quickly from adverse and unpreventable conditions; innovativeness -transform novel ideas to achieve high business value; flexibility – able to figure out the alternative way of doing things; resilience – well positioned to exploit new opportunities, to reach the next cycle of business growth and innovation.
