Leaders have a responsibility after crafting the strategy to guide the organization to its strategy destination.

Leaders know that a titanic mistake has been to focus more on crafting strategy than implementing it.

The question leaders are now asking is “What do we need to do differently?” Too many leaders on too many occasions have been involved in too many failures. Attitude, approach and actions must change. Many actions leaders need to take to successfully implement strategy are contrary to current beliefs. One belief: Most people resist implementation (but not when it is communicated correctly). Another belief: Strategy implementation must be reviewed twice a year (no, it should be reviewed every two weeks).

Today, implementation can’t simply be delegated. Instead, leaders must spend the majority of their time overseeing the implementation actions – it’s that critical to successful implementation.
