Getting an organization to implement and execute a new strategy for which one?
calls for essentially the same kinds of creative management talent and innovative thinking as does crafting strategy
is a market-driven process rather than an operations-driven activity
is a job for a company’s whole management team, not just a few senior managers; moreover, all employees are participants in the strategy execution process
depends heavily on the caliber of a CEO’s business vision, industry and competitive analysis skills, and entrepreneurial creativity
tends to be a simpler, quicker management task to perform as compared to crafting a winning strategy
