Execution remains a fundamental challenge and also one of the least addressed issues in businesses, management literature and academic curricula. Projects and initiatives that failed to deliver stated values abound, yet accepted as a fait accompli.
The culture of execution is fundamentally important to the very survival of an enterprise. After all what good is a strategy, or a plan if it does not get implemented. And yet, it is common to find excuses for execution failures as bad strategy or some other explanation. Execution requires discipline, capability as well capacity to execute.
Our passion is execution. We strongly believe that what is holding back a company's success is not the lack of ideas but its inability to execute those ideas and convert into value.
