Strategy = Execution is for leaders, professionals, and entrepreneurs who view strategy execution as their principal job instead of strategy definition. Organizations are currently in a new economy, where they are either being disrupted or causing disruption.

Continuity is no longer a given. Only one law applies: strategy = execution, because a strategy is only as brilliant as its execution. Strategy execution is the last competitive advantage, and strength, speed and agility in execution are more important than a perfectly mapped-out strategy based on feasibility and predictability.

- Get an overview: 6 success factors, 4 accelerators and 16 building blocks
- Get inspired: 16 cases and more than 50 innovation methods and new business models
- Get started: 5 strategy execution approaches and an online test of your organization’s execution capacity
