Implementing Strategy, a guide to turning strategy into action

Developing a strategy is not the end of the process, it is only the beginning.

If you think translating a strategy into action is a significant challenge you are not alone. All too often, the benefits that were promised are delivered late, or fail to materialise at all. Management teams get distracted by the day-to-day challenges of running the business. Cross-functional initiatives fall between operating silos, budgets get reallocated and the initial momentum is lost.

Despite strategy implementation being seen as a key priority by most senior executives, fewer than 15% of organisations consider themselves to be successful when it comes to executing strategy.

Andrew Hone of Zenith Strategy created this easy-to-follow guide to learn how you can start implementing strategy successfully and turn plans into action.

This is a sequel to Andrew's first publication in the series, "The Perfect 4-Week Strategic Review."
