Strategy Implementation

Knowing how to plan and implement an appropriate strategy, while overcoming “today’s surprises” is the most foundational leadership capability any organisation can have.
With the economy becoming more and more competitive with each passing day it is imperative that organisations succeed in the implementation of their chosen strategy.

However, there is a widespread problem with strategy implementation, organisations do struggle with it, it’s an old problem which has been around for many years.
There is plenty of good academic research around strategy. However, little research exists which seeks to gather knowledge about the effectiveness of strategy implementation from people at the sharp end.

At NorthCo we seek to support top leadership and management teams to keep “ahead of the wave” through the effective implementation of an appropriate strategy.
Our primary and secondary research seeks to provide relevant insight into strategy implementation through the lens of those that are on the ground.

Please help us with our research, taking 60 seconds to complete this tick box survey – it’s anonymous, we have no desire to track individual input, and even if we did we can’t because we don’t know how.
