Focus more in execution then strategy – Strategy development in agile way

Often, Organizations spend a lot of time on strategy and planning and less on executions. Infact , many times the execution team is even kept out of strategy building exercise, which leads to failure in implementations.

The better way perhaps is to develop the strategy in agile way – Test and fail fast mode..as it is for sure that strategy and plan has to be realigned to the realities when encountered.

Main reasons:

  1. Often, The strategy makers are not aware of execution challenges and realities
  2. Humans tend to be more imaginative in workshops and be ambitious. Many a times i have observed tall goals setup , which is good in way, but bound to fail if not supported by proper execution capability assessment.
