Strategy = Execution

20% strategy, 80% execution. That’s the recipe for faster improvement, renewal and innovation, based on our own research. Read about it in our international bestseller, Strategy = Execution.

"A wealth of well-founded insights and advice."

- Ben Tiggelaar

Improve, Renew and Innovate faster

Organizations are currently in a new economy, where they are either being disrupted or causing disruption. Continuity is no longer a given. Only one law applies: strategy = execution, because a strategy is only as brilliant as its execution. Strategy execution is the last competitive advantage, and strength, speed and agility in execution are more important than a perfectly mapped-out strategy based on feasibility and predictability. Strategy = Execution is the number 1 assignment for executives, professionals and entrepreneurs. For established organizations and for fast-growing startups. In the private and the (semi-)public sector.

Organizations that excel in strategy execution enjoy a three-month advantage in lead-time-to-execution and save 50% in total execution and innovation process time. They achieve 15 to 25% more of their goals. And these organizations increase their strategy execution capacity year after year, because they use a single language and method for the essentials of modern strategy execution.

Based on 60 interviews with executives, 75 cases and 300 articles and books with one question: what makes or breaks modern day strategy execution and innovation? The research is published under the title Strategy = Execution.

Strategy = Execution. Improve, Renew and Innovate Faster

How can organizations make strategy execution their number one priority? And improve, renew and innovate faster? This I describe in my book Strategy = Execution. Strategy = execution is based on the research that Turner started years ago into the success factors of strategy execution and innovation. We interviewed 60 directors and professionals and analyzed more than 75 cases, 300 relevant books and articles.

Striving for alignment within the chain of command of the line organization is easy. Alignment is more than making sure the chain of command is well-oiled and that people who work at the same level in the vertical chain meet their KPI targets.
