This is a collection of articles that caught my attention this week with the theme of strategy execution.
The development of strategy can be a productive exercise and serve to bring people together around a common vision for the future. Although it's good to have a sense of where you should go and what you should be doing to get there, taking action is often the hard part. This week's articles touch on aligning organizational resources with business strategy; refocusing on execution versus growth targets; and how several large companies are accelerating the execution of their strategy. The trend here is in execution and making things happen.
