Every single initiative that is executed in the organization has to go through a Strategic Filter. It is one of the first items that has to be developed in the organization. The Strategic Filter is the tool that helps the Visionary work with the Integrator and saves time for everybody in the organization when new ideas are suggested.
The Strategic Filter is one of the tools that is created during the initial strategy session along with the Vision, Mission, Core Values, Core Focus and a Value Creation Plan (VCP).
Without a strategic filter organization will follow the shiny objects and the relationship between the Visionary and the Integrator will be up to personalities and not focused on an objective assessment, which may lead to a conflict.
