Creating an Execution Culture: A Leader's Most Important Job
Source: Leadership Advantage
Execution is the biggest issue facing organizations and something no one has satisfactorily explained. It is a culture with a specific set of behaviors, processes and techniques. More than anything, it is a disciplined and systematic approach to planning, implementation and progress assessment. Execution is not just something that does or doesn't get done; it is not just a tactic, and it is not something to be delegated. Execution should be a central part of a company's strategy and goals and the most important job of any leader. An execution culture links the three core processes of any business, the people process, the strategy, and the operating plan, together to get things done on time.
