The Flawless Execution Model:
Plan — The plan starts with an objective that is clear, measurable and achievable and supports your company’s overall strategy.
Brief — You communicate the plan. It is essential that people on the front lines know exactly what is expected of them. Businesses ignore this — often at their peril.
Execute — Even with a solid plan and a good brief, a mission can still fail due to Task Saturation or task overload. Task Saturation is the reality or perception of having too much to do without the time or resources to accomplish it. Even with the resources people still have to manage conflicting priorities. We know that as Task Saturation increases, performance decreases; therefore, at Afterburner we help teams combat Task Saturation by identifying resources and managing priorities.
Debrief — The last step is the Debriefing. After each mission, Fighter Pilots hold a nameless, rankless Debrief. Each person, without fear of reprimand, rehashes what worked, what did not work and why both the good events and the bad events happened. We then take the key lessons learned from the Debrief and apply them to the next plan. Debriefing speeds up learning. It lets us fine tune the processes that ensure success.
Win! — Our goal is to win by aligning your team around a disciplined, scalable process in order to achieve business results.
