This richly illustrated book is for anyone who has a dream and wishes to fulfill it, but whose aspirations require the support of others. Most approaches to strategy implementation fail because strategy is created at one level (the top) and handed off to another (the middle and bottom). Consequently, everyone is frustrated.

Any executive or manager concerned with strategy execution should read this book. The authors tell you how to build a comprehensive strategy execution roadmap that deploys strategy throughout the organization and fits the organization to it.
