I suspect that if you were to do so, you will find the question more difficult than it seems. The term “strategy-execution” implies that:
- Strategy has two distinct parts – planning and execution; and
- Execution can be more difficult than planning.
This makes strategy a journey and not a destination. More significantly, though, it is not a journey you control. And that is why you will find a continuing focus on controls counter-productive. Just as insisting on adherence to a particular, pre-planned route can result in reaching your destination long after you needed to be there, when finding alternative routes would have enabled you to by-pass problems and delays and arrive in time.
