Bridging the Strategy Execution Gap: Revolutionizing the HOW!

In order to lead and execute strategy in a disruptive world, organizations must become more agile. Unfortunately, strategy execution has traditionally been the weak link in doing so, for many organizations both large and small.

We believe that bridging the strategic execution gap happens when the organization's strategic planning processes are better aligned, accountable and responsive. By using the Agile Strategy Execution Framework that integrates agile concepts with strategy execution best practices, senior leaders and strategy execution practitioners can revolutionize the "How" of strategy execution.

This session, using a case study with 4 years of execution and results, will show how lean and agile concepts were integrated with strategy execution best practices. In so doing, this energy transmission organization was better able to keep pace with and more proactively manage fast changing internal and external landscapes. A strategy execution maturity assessment model used at this organization will also be presented and given out, highlighting their successes and lessons learned during their journey.
