The Challenge: From Corporate Strategy to Implementation
Why is it so difficult for companies to put their strategy into practice?
- Corporate culture of silos
- Too few resources are made available
- Inability to react dynamically to change
Achieving sustainable success is the goal of every company. To do this, you need to turn your goals and strategy into reality. This actually sounds quite simple, but the reality is that many companies still fail when going from defined goals and a clear strategy to the actual execution.
The Gap Between Strategy and Execution
A study by the think tank Brightline™ in cooperation with PMI, Boston Consulting Group and other industry experts shows where most companies fail. The study also shows that the formulation of corporate strategy is often not the real problem. Because you know the future vision of your company, your goals and, best of all, your plans. Where companies struggle is closing the gap between strategy and execution. With Meisterplan, you can actively implement your strategy and goals.
