Mona & David's book provides an enjoyable, easy to digest model for filling the common gap between the definition & realization of strategy. Reading it reminded me a lot of Kotter's Leading Change. The authors have also provided many "breadcrumbs" for those who wish to take a deeper dive into any of the seven elements. I especially enjoyed the strong emphasis on the criticality of authentic leadership and transforming corporate culture to fit the desired strategic vision.

This book was a timely and valuable read for me! In my coaching and training practice, I have found that a dysfunctional organizational culture is the single biggest hurdle to overcome. Mona and David give practical advice and great 'how to' steps to begin the process of building a culture that makes execution of even the most complex projects look easy. My first step will be to purchase copies for some key influencers within my client base. Thank you Mona and David


Finally, a book that tackles why good teams fail when achieving their strategic goals.  We spend so much time in our business focusing on building the plans and very little time on the execution of these plans and so often fail.  By reading 7 Elements of Strategy Execution you will get to the heart of why strategic plans fail and how you as a leader can truly weave your strategic plans into your organizational culture to guarantee success.  It will cause you to look at how you as a leader are impacting the culture and what you can do differently to drive the successful execution of the strategy, not just on the building of your strategic plan.  We have all created great strategic plans that end up documented and on the shelf, It is time to bring strategy into real action and to organizational success!

A book that talks about projects from the team member perspective. Why it is so important to have clarity in what a strategy is trying to achieve and how that clarity, or lack thereof impacts the entire teams performance. In a world, where the Agile methodology has taken hold, it is even more important to have clearly articulated, measurable targets for success. This book will show how to leverage those targets to build and motivate the team and ultimately deliver a successful project.
