Leaders understand the importance of strategy execution but are still missing the methodology to succeed. Achieving excellence in execution is a competitive differentiator that, when achieved, has tremendous payoffs, because it’s not easy to do. This keynote provides an overview of what leaders need to consider doing.
Leaders are responsible for crafting a winning strategy and then involving and leading the rest of the organization in its execution. They need to start the execution planning during the strategy planning (not after). They also need to create the right conditions for execution and guide people through the journey to demonstrate their commitment and sincerity.
To assist leaders in translating the strategy from the top level to the ground level, the “Three Broad Themes of Execution” are introduced, (1) Create Awareness, (2) Build Excellence (3) Follow Through.
Organizations have to consider the speed at which they need to execute the strategy – the Strategy Cadence. This is a critical part of the execution, as is leaders driving the right actions across the organization. This keynote highlights how this can be achieved.
It also addresses the execution juxtaposition, reallocation of resources, how take your people over the wall, importance of follow up and business model disruption.
