Strategy execution is a vital competency. Seven top activities are:

  1. Priority 1 – Effectively communicate the decision(s) made as part of the strategy
  2. Identify specific actions – initiatives, programs, projects
  3. Establish milestones and track progress against them.
  4. Foster accountability so that individuals know and agree with metrics
  5. Give people the resources, authority to execute. Allow for discretion.
  6. Get the right people involved from the beginning
  7. Measure individual performance and make it more consequential.

Greg helps individuals and teams select the right concepts and practices for execution. He has a number of effective techniques for strategy execution, and has conveniently packaged them into a seminar, Leading Strategic Initiatives (Program Management).
