Leading and managing execution within an organization is not an intuitive or straightforward endeavor. If it were, every organization would be excelling and exceeding their plans.
They are not.
Unfortunately, missing plan is so common in business that it is almost expected. Too often, achieving merely 70% of the plan is cause for celebration. The vast majority of managers and executives do not have confidence in their organization's ability to execute at the level required to achieve their growth plans. This absence of confidence leads to a lack of total commitment to achieving the plan. It becomes a wish, a hope, something that would be great if we achieved it, but not something that the organization fully believes in and is fully committed to achieving.
Organizations don’t lack for plans. They lack the knowledge, tools, and systems to effectively manage execution. It is this lack of knowledge and understanding surrounding execution principles and execution management processes that is the greatest obstacle to organizational results.
"No company can deliver on its commitments or adapt well to change unless all leaders practice the discipline of execution, execution leadership, and execution management at all levels.
Execution has to be a part of a company’s strategy and its goals. It is the missing link between aspirations and results. As such, it is a major – indeed, the major – job of a business leader. If you don’t know how to execute, the whole of your effort as a leader will always be less than the sum of its parts.”
-Bossidy & Charan, Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done
Bossidy and Charan are absolutely correct; however, here-in lies the problem. In order to manage execution, your leadership team, your managers, and your supervisors need to fully understand the principles, the processes, and the tools of execution management. Unfortunately, in the vast majority of instances, they do not.
This is where we come in.
