Breakthrough Imperatives

In any executive accountability, there are business imperatives: unprecedented outcomes that are necessary for success.


Often, the business imperative may be at risk or require remarkable performance beyond what is currently predictable. Almost always, business as usual is unacceptable and speed-to-results is a requirement.

What is a Breakthrough?

A specific, measurable result that is unprecedented given historical trends, current resources, and circumstances

The result requires a fundamental shift in thinking and approach, often viewed initially as “this cannot be done.”

Breakthroughs are intentionally delivered through commitment and collaboration.

The outcome is generated in a manner that is sustainable and does not sacrifice quality, integrity, safety, or well-being of products, services or relationships.

Breakthrough Projects

A Breakthrough Project is an initiative with a specific team or group that has an aggressive, quantifiable goal. The breakthrough goal represents the accomplishment of an unprecedented or seemingly impossible objective.
