Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 25JAN10

This week’s focus: strategy and execution

What is more important? Strategy or execution?

A failed strategy can keep your company or department from thriving just as can failed or poor execution.  Both are essential to thrive in your marketplace.

More executives “leave for personal reasons” due to failed execution than bad strategy.

Do you have the right strategy?  Is your execution on par with expectations?  If you are concerned about either of these, are you taking appropriate corrective action?

Thought for the week:

“Laugh at yourself, but don’t ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don’t leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.” –Alan Alda
