Strategy to Execution

Successfully Execute Your Strategy

Achieving Goals Without Detours and Delays

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.

Struggling with Strategy to Execution
Bridging the Strategy to Execution Gap

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.

There are a lot of things that go into a project plan besides the timing and resources. We need a lot of context and it shouldn't be a surprise when a project needs attention. Our projects need to tie back to our mission and what we want to achieve. With Meisterplan, we can make informed decisions and move the organization forward.

One of our problems was being able to show everybody our portfolio plan. Now we see all our projects we would talk about, graphically depicted. You can see their durations and when you scroll down, you can see the team. Maybe these two projects are significant and they're taking two resources each for this period of time. We can now see how much room is in the capacity bucket that we have left to fill. From here we can look at our options. Using Meisterplan to do that helps us show our work and provide transparency.
