Execution

Strategy doesn't happen on a page.  It happens after decisions are made and people roll their sleeves up

To think is easy. To act is hard. But the hardest thing in the world is to act in accordance with your thinking
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Strategy execution is something successful leaders focus on; it simply isn’t optional if you want success. Execution has to be intentional and focused and you need to think about it when you develop your strategy because it’s no good having a strategy with insurmountable execution challenges.

But knowing what needs to be done and getting it done are two different things, so we also focus on supporting our clients with strategy execution.  We see it as a discipline distinct from strategy (development). Getting strategy humming takes different skills and it involves everyone, not just leadership.  For example;

  • You need to be able to prioritise a certain way

  • It demands short and long term thinking

  • You need to motivate and reward people

  • You need to understand and train for the performance gap in execution that will almost surely be there

  • Operationally, managing individual efforts in a way that aligns to strategy requires best practice project management

  • Leaders need to be all over strategy execution. Yep. It takes time. Your time.

How we can help you set up a strong strategy execution ecosystem 

  • Establish a strategy governance framework that drives execution
  • We believe in strategy-backed operations to deliver growth, so once we have identified your strategic Objectives, we help identify strategic Initiatives and co-create ways to bring them to life
  • We will help you prioritize in a way that gives your strategy the best chance of success
