This idea is completely wrong. Execution is not just tactics – it is discipline and a system. It has to be built in to a company’s strategy, its goals and its culture. And the leader of the organization must be deeply engaged in it. He cannot delegate its substance. Many business leaders spend vast amounts of time learning and promulgating the latest management techniques. But their failure to understand and practice execution negates the value of almost all they learn and preach. Such leaders are building houses without foundations.” Ram Charan, Execution, 2002, p.6 Why is Execution So Difficult? :  Why is Execution So Difficult?
