You'll find proven techniques that you can implement to ensure that changes in business strategy are reflected in complementary changes to the organizational project portfolio. The Execution Challenge includes over 70 diagrams and figures, an organizational assessment, and reusable frameworks.

  • A multidimensional and nuanced perspective on understanding modern organizational structures and design that provides a comprehensive view of your firm's value proposition
  • How to align business strategy with project-level execution and maintain the alignment as strategy evolves

A can't-miss toolkit for converting words and ideas into coordinated action and momentum, The Execution Challenge is the real-world guide to strategy execution that executives, strategists, transformation and innovation leaders, strategic planners, managers, directors, entrepreneurs, and other business leaders have been waiting for.
