From the Back Cover
--Dan Phelan, Chief of Staff, GlaxoSmithKline
The model is understandable, sound in theory and offers great practical tools and tips. I also found Leading Execution inspiring as it offers a realistic plan leaders can implement to effect system-wide change.
Most strategy books focus on the easy part of strategy: generating a future vision. Leading Strategy Execution focuses on the hard work of strategy: getting the organization to deliver great results. If you're looking for practical, clear advice on improving strategy implementation, read this book!
This books puts it all together! It is pragmatic, readable, and realistic. The authors offer tools, stories, and sound advice based on their years of experience...an exceptionally valuable read.
--Linda Ackerman Anderson, author of The Change Leader's Roadmap
This much needed resource provides an enormously helpful set of ideas and applications. It enables leaders to successfully navigate the waters of strategy execution.
