Strategy Execution Excellence

By Prof. Prashant Kale (Jones School of Business, Rice University)

    Strategy Execution Excellence

    Date: 23–25 January 2020

    Key Challenges

    The best thought-out plans in a company aren’t worth the paper they are written on, if the organization is not able to pull them off. It is critical to transform winning strategies into genuine results and this program takes a step in that direction. Thus, the objective of this program is to familiarize business leaders with not only some core ideas that will help create strategies to achieve competitive advantage and growth in their company but, more importantly, lead the execution of those strategies effectively. Good execution is the great unaddressed issue in many companies today – and its absence is one of the biggest obstacles to the success of a company, and the cause of many disappointments that are mistakenly attributed to other causes.

    Program Benefits

    The program will have following benefits to the participants:

    • Understand the building blocks of strategy
    • Create advantage over your rivals through competitive positioning and sustaining them
    • Insights into creating high performing teams for effective strategy execution
    • Successfully drive innovation initiatives in your company by addressing the challenges faced in their implementation
    • Learn mechanisms to realize and benefits from synergy opportunities in companies
    • Personal skills and capabilities to become an effective leader
    • Ability to create an appropriate organizational architecture and culture which facilitates the execution of a chosen strategy

    The benefits from the program will be enhanced, if a ‘team of 3-4 leaders’ from the same organization are able to attend it together. This will help them internalize the learning as a group, as well work together during the program to apply those concepts to enhance strategy execution efforts in their own context.
