An Executive Briefing from the Alliance for Leadership Acceleration and the Harvard Business Review
Speaker: Lynda Silsbee, Founder and President of the Alliance for Leadership Acceleration
Since Michael Porter’s groundbreaking work in the 1980s, we’ve gotten really good at developing strategy—but we’re not nearly as good at executing it. Studies show that up to 75% of large organizations struggle to implement their strategies. When global CEOs are surveyed about their biggest concerns, execution tops the list—ahead of innovation, geopolitical instability, and top-line growth.
In this 40-minute Executive Briefing, attendees will hear from leading executive coach and organizational consultant, Lynda Silsbee on:
- leading research published in Harvard Business about valuable insights about strategy execution
- the top 5 myths that corporations believe and practice which lead to issues with execution of their strategic priorities,
- why a top-down approach to execution won’t work, and
- how executives and leaders can resolve the 5 problems and get execution on track to improve results.
