Cover from The Execution Shortcut, a book about strategy execution by Jeroen De Flander

The strategy journey to success is long and dangerous. Most strategies lose between 40 and 60 percent of their financial potential along the execution highway. There is a path that will make the trip dramatically shorter. It exists in every organization, but mostly stays hidden. With the help of science, we’ll uncover The Execution Shortcut.

There are three prerequisites:

  • The Head connection – people need to be aware of your strategy;
  • The Heart connection – people need to care about your strategy;
  • The Hands connection – people need the energy to push your strategy forwards.

– Kristof Luys | HR Manager | TerBeke-Pluma

I have been able to use this report as a benchmark to improve my organisation’s performance management process”
– Dr. Mohammed Ilyas | Manager Economics and Business Support | SABIC

– Robin Speculand | CEO | Bridges Business Consultancy

“A breathtakingly vast and informative report that is still easy to understand. It highlights those precise points, which, in my opinion, require more attention during the execution of strategy. A must read for anyone with the word ‘manager’ in his/her title.“
– Jari Lahtinen | Senior Specialist of Critical Projects | Nokia

“… (an) extremely granular study on a hot topic. Changing rules, roles and responsibilities in an environment of financial and economic instability, today, even more than ever, requires a strategy with a clear focus and predefined deliverables, including its associated actions. From the individual Balanced Scorecard right up to the view of a multinational corporate, both have one key element in common: it’s all about strategy. This study is a great tool that not only helps to critically analyse one’s own individual behaviours, but also to position a corporate strategy against those of its industry peers across all regions, cultures or industries“
– Hans Sawatzki | Senior Sales Consultant | ING
