Organizational Procrastination

Research shows 90% of well-formulated strategies fail due to poor execution.

Procrastination - putting things off - important things -- is simply a lack of execution.

Procrastination can kill a career, a relationship, an organization.

Avoiding organizational procrastination involves developing constructive accountability -- which provides the focus needed to keep the "urgent" tasks from overriding the "most important" tasks.

BOTTOMLINE: If procrastination is a problem within your organization, an Individual Plan (IP) is a time-tested, proven method to correct the problem. When used by all team members, the result is an organization that has the most vital core competence of all -- the ability to execute its strategy - to be excellent. Read about Individual Plans in the top-rated book Six Disciplines for Excellence.
