Execution and Common Sense

Bud Bilanch, our good friend - who's known as the "Common Sense Guy," posts about one of our favorite topics: Execution.

His assertions?

"My model for building a successful business is built on four pillars:
  1. Develop and communicate your clarity of purpose
  2. Enlist the sincere commitment of everyone
  3. Skillfully execute the things that matter
  4. Build long lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with your important constituencies"

Here are Bud's five keys to effective execution:

  1. Focus on what's really important.
  2. Develop meaningful measures.
  3. Create SMART goals.
  4. Measure progress regularly.
  5. Reinforce good performance, redirect poor performance.
