Closing The Gap

Most organizations find it difficult to do what they regard as important; they are good at planning but struggle to put these plans into action.  This is not a new challenge; this is a widespread & enduring problem for most organizations.  Learning how to close this gap is the purpose of this presentation.  It’s not about creating more detailed plans, rather it’s about creating “clarity & alignment”.  This is accomplished by creating a culture where top leadership focuses on “what to achieve & why” and grants autonomy so front line executors can focus on “what to do & how”.
