Leaders in organizations are frequently called upon to implement a new strategy. But their training has been in planning strategies, not executing them. This has left a gap in the skills and knowledge required for excellence in execution of strategy.
What happens? They repeat the mistakes made in previous implementations and get poor results—again. According to my research since 2000, more strategy implementations fail than succeed. Leaders are underestimating the whole implementation challenge.
In fact, leaders are struggling to find the knowledge they need to do things differently—especially in a form that is succinct and easy to read. Only a few books are available on the subject and very few highlight the critical, core messages.
The Pocket Book of Excellence in Execution: 136 Key Messages for Your Success fills this gap with a concise collection of essential lessons. Its messages are organized under the eight areas for excellence in execution. They convey useful tips to overcome the key challenges, with each one featuring a nugget for implementing strategy.
