I enjoyed this clearly written article explaining four major gaps between strategy and execution. Hereby summarized for you and yours:
- Take into account the thinking styles and mental models of the people who will be responsible for its execution.
- Involve them to generate a sense of ownership and to tap into their collective wisdom.
- Craft a narrative that connects the past to the future.
- esign metrics that focus attention and motivate behavior around what will really make the strategy successful.
