  • Activate the gates
  • Align the portfolio
  • Accelerate the process

It’s all about visibility, priorities, and speed; exactly what the three strategies are aimed at providing. But beyond the strategies, it also takes effective and efficient business design: people, process and technology. Strategy and business design: two of the three key elements for industry-leading results.
