Strategy, Execution and The New Year

Intending on improving the way you execute your strategy in 2008?

You have two choices:

1. Doing the right things.
Doing the right things focuses on choices - it's all about strategy. It's how you differentiate yourself from your competition, and what you've chosen not to do.

2. Doing things right.
Doing the right things focuses on process - it's all about execution. It's how you repeatedly improve how things get done.

BOTTOMLINE: For 2008, I suggest a third option:

3. Doing the right things...right.

This would be a balance between strong strategy and strong execution. You'll be hearing much more about how to increase the capability of your organization to execute its strategy in a more predictable, sustainable way.

Happy New Year from Be Excellent!
