Role 3: Execute Strategy

Make it easier to get the results you want.

Leaders must not only think big, but also execute their vision and strategy all the way through to completion, with and through others. When leaders execute strategy, they move from thinking success comes from the strategy to knowing that enduring success is in the systems.

A system is a process, method, or set of procedures for achieving something. A great system is aligned to achieve what’s most important and makes it easier to get work done. Effective systems operate independently of the leader and endures beyond them.

Leaders execute strategy by aligning the Six Rights and implementing the 4 Disciplines of Execution®.

The Six Rights

  • Right People: Do we have the right people, with the right skills, doing the right work?
  • Right Structure: Do we have the right roles and responsibilities in place?
  • Right Rewards: Are people compensated, recognized, and rewarded in the right way?
  • Right Resources: Do we have the right tools, budget, technology, time, and other resources?
  • Right Decisions: Are the right decisions being made by the people closest to the work?
  • Right Processes: Are the core work processes aligned to support the strategy in the right way?

The real problem isn’t executing your goals, it’s executing your goals in the midst of the whirlwind.
