Sign #4: Lack of executive support
Organizations focus, and apply resources, to approved projects that are based on solving defined problems and providing measurable results. Executive sponsors champion, and key stakeholders rally behind, initiatives that have broad organizational visibility and resourcing approvals.
Your “Driving Performance and Safety” initiative should have a highly visible executive sponsor, the goals/results of the initiative should foot to a fiscal year corporate objective (like “saving 10% of our fuel expenditure, reducing the frequency and severity of crashes and risk by 40%, and eliminating CO2 emissions for a greener planet”). Your executive sponsor and stakeholders can add weight and momentum to a project that is tied to corporate goals.
