"Time has come to end years of stagnation in the leadership suite"
Most leaders are great at formulating strategy, but very little is actually accomplished and 3 out 4 strategies fail to reach their goals .The approach to strategy in the boardroom and executive suite is old-fashioned, manual, not tangible. Let’s face Strategy get lost in implementation and humans SUCK at implementing strategy. There is a need for change and we as leaders are changing everything but ourselves. We have taken our organizations through optimization, streamlining, rightsizing and now digitalization. But that is not enough.
