The Business Case for Strategy
Formulating strategy is a difficult task, but making strategy work – executing or
implementing it throughout the organization - is very often more difficult. This is the
reason why in more than 90% of cases strategy is partially or not at all executed
(Fortune Magazine), failing to deliver the value expected by the shareholders.
The road to effective strategy execution is full of obstacles and dangers, among
• Planning and execution are inter-dependent. They are part of an overall
planning-execution-adapting process where the involvement and interaction of
planners and doers is a must for achieving a successful strategy implementation.
Creating and developing a leadership team combining these capabilities is a key
challenge for the CEOs, requiring leadership excellence and effective top team
• Execution must be a well-planned process. Time and continuous effort are
required in order to align all elements of the organization, combining short-term
results with the achievement of the long-term strategic objectives. The execution
can combine business integration and/or business transformation (i.e. for
mergers & acquisitions) with culture and leadership change that will require
complex and inter-related action plans at all levels of the organization.
• Execution usually involves many people. Communication and strategy
decoding play a key role in cascading the strategy at the lowest levels of the
organization and across functions. Making the strategy actionable within a large
multinational organization with different business lines and geographical locations
is a major challenge for the leadership team.
In short, Key Success Factors for a successful implementation of strategy include
Managing Change as a transformation mechanism involving all processes of the
operating model, working on People Engagement at all levels in order to reduce
stress and insure engagement, and building a “Real Team” at the Top with
appropriate leadership capabilities.
