Join Darden Executive Education for our upcoming Darden Ideas to Action Leader Series masterclass, designed to provide new perspectives for ongoing challenges facing managers and leaders today.
Top leaders frequently see strategy execution as the most critical issue facing their organizations today, yet recent results of CEO surveys, academic research and consultancy studies paint a dire portrait, with as much as 90% of companies consistently failing to effectively execute their strategies.
Poor operational and strategic decision-making are often cited as key contributors of weak strategy execution, resulting in as much as 70% of all strategic initiatives failing within their respective organizations.
Learn why so many firms struggle with strategy execution while others achieve breakthrough performance, foster the ability to better assess execution capability, understand the implications of and keys to effective strategy execution, and discover practical strategies to help generate alignment around effectively executing an organization’s strategy.
This masterclass is for mid-level managers responsible for executing strategy, as well as senior leaders who need to communicate expectations and mentor teams through the strategy implementation process.
This workshop is particularly useful for fostering a shared perspective on successful execution of strategic objectives. Whole teams are highly encouraged to attend together, if possible.
Developed to meet the needs of professionals who are always on the move, Darden Executive Education's Ideas to Action Leader Series 2-day "bootcamps" are:
