Beyond Strategy – The Leader’s Role In Successful Implementation
Due to the staggering failure of organizations to deliver on strategy promises, implementation has become an integral part of strategy discussions. In Beyond Strategy, Robin Speculand shifts the emphasis from why strategy implementation is important (the focus of his international bestseller Bricks to Bridges to what leaders must do differently. When something needs to change, that change starts with the leaders.
Strategy implementation can’t simply be delegated; leaders must take charge. Beyond Strategy provides the model, structure and specific actions for leaders at all levels to go beyond strategy and deliver on their promises.
Beyond Strategy is divided into the eight areas of the Implementation Compass™—a tool that identifies the eight global best practices of strategy implementation. Each chapter summarizes the actions leaders must take in the eight areas. You’ll find this must-have book succinct, action-orientated and packed with practical tips and case studies. It provides a breakthrough in understanding strategy implementation itself and explains a leader’s responsibility to execute it well.
