Strategy-to-performance gaps foster a culture of under-performance Unrealistic plans create the expectation throughout the organisation that plans simply will not be fulfilled. This book shows how to overcome such failings and implement strategy effectively. Common failings include: Companies rarely track their performance against long-term plans - less than 15% of companies make it a regular practice to go back and compare the business' results with the performance forecast for each business unit in its prior years' strategic results Results rarely meet projections - when companies do track performance, it rarely matches the prior years' projection. The consequence is year-after-year of under-performance relative to the original plan A lot of value is lost in translation - a combination of poor communications, misapplied resources, limited accountability and lack of information creates an in-built strategy-to-performance gap

Drawing on original research and work carried out by business schools and consultants, and using the experiences of firms such as Reuters, Diageo, Pfizer, Deutsche Bank and IBM, Michel Syrett highlights common failings, such as poor resource planning and performance management and demonstrates how they can be overcome. (Manager Magazine)This is a very readable - and relevant - introduction to a key issue for strategy. (Professional Manager Magazine)

  • By Anthony Martin on 5 June 2008

    I really like Michel Syrett's style and down to earth approach in this book. He debunks the implication that the design and execution of strategy are a mystery that only business gurus and highly paid consultants can unravel - and looks at how a number of organisations have kept their business objectives on track. The case studies are well worth reading, especially as many of them are on blue chip companies and household names. Attributed insights and comment such as these are pretty rare.

  • By Guest on 28 May 2008

    I would recommend this as essential reading for all business strategists. With insight garnered from a wealth of experience, backed up by great real-life case studies, Syrett takes the reader through the key steps to carrying out successful strategy. I shall certainly be applying his methods.
