Add to Cart About Execution The book that shows how to get the job done and deliver results. Ram Charan is a legendary advisor to senior executives and boards of directors, a man with unparalleled insight into why some companies are successful and others are not. Bossidy and Charan show the importance of being deeply and passionately engaged in an organization and why robust dialogues about people, strategy, and operations result in a business based on intellectual honesty and realism. People then work together to create a strategy building block by building block, a strategy in sync with the realities of the marketplace, the economy, and the competition. Once the right people and strategy are in place, they are then linked to an operating process that results in the implementation of specific programs and actions and that assigns accountability. This kind of effective operating process goes way beyond the typical budget exercise that looks into a rearview mirror to set its goals. It puts reality behind the numbers and is where the rubber meets the road.

People then work together to create a strategy building block by building block, a strategy in sync with the realities of the marketplace, the economy, and the competition.
If you can get everyone moving in the same direction and at the same time then successful execution is much more likely. They must strive to be rigorous and consistent with their actions and encourage all team members to practice the discipline of execution. Realism is the second behaviour that a leader needs. Rather than avoiding the truth a great leader needs to embrace the truth. And if this means identifying and acknowledging weaknesses then be as real as possible. Leaders need to be setting goals and priorities.
Being someone that always follows through is important for a leader, it means that people will believe what you say and take you seriously. Never be someone who has a lot to say but never puts anything into action. The fifth behaviour a leader must have is the ability to reward people. In doing so you encourage your team to work hard and achieve results.
Consider bonuses, pay rises or stocks.
Pass on knowledge, always be expanding other peoples capabilities. Leaders need to be strong characters who know themselves well. Accepting and acknowledging your own weaknesses and working to improve these is a great trait for a leader. Building block two: cultural change Bossidy explains that companies often focus on changing their strategy and structures.
But they fail to work on the people, the beliefs, and behaviours of those that they work with. He emphasises that cultural change is just as important if not more as strategy and structure. When the changes are so disconnected, they are not likely to succeed. A business needs to understand the deep connections between company culture and business outcomes.
These will change the beliefs and behaviour of people in ways that are directly linked to bottom-line results. Bossidy explains that the first step is to clearly identify and communicate what results you are after. Then have a discussion about how those results are going to be reached.
And finally, you reward people when the goals are reached. In the scenario where you and your team do not reach the end goal adequately, assess what happened and ask how can you learn for next time. Actions Bossidy explains that behaviours are the outcome of beliefs being turned into action. The results are a direct result of the behaviours. One that brings reality to the surface through openness, candor, and informality.
Robust dialogue makes an organization effective in gathering information, understanding the information, and reshaping it to produce decisions. It fosters creativity—most innovations and inventions are incubated through robust dialogue. Ultimately, it creates a more competitive advantage and shareholder value.
These are the people that make decisions every day and take actions towards either success or failure. Bossidy explains that consistently successful businesses always have a leader who is dedicated to selecting the perfect people for the perfect roles.
It takes time and dedication when selecting the right employees but it is always going to be worth it. Development Further to selecting the right people, Bossidy emphasises the importance of developing people within your company. Whether it be providing experiences, learning opportunities, feedback, coaching education or training.
It is critical that everyone is always learning and developing. This encourages them to stay motivated, stay on track and better themselves and their work. Then you need to find out about their past and present accomplishments, how they think, and what drives their ambitions. The people process, the strategy process, and the operation process. All are equally important. The people process This process is all about connecting the people to the strategy and operations.
People are at the core of any business, they are the ones that make decisions and create strategies. A framework will be provided to identify and develop leadership. Establishing this link will encourage people to remain focused and motivated and will keep everyone accountable. By identifying milestones both medium and long-term you will have a system by which you can assess your staff.
By assessing how quickly and effectively they meet their milestones you will be in a better position to understand who is better equipped to take on more responsibility. In some cases, people who have been promoted will be underperforming in their new role and need to be shifted back or eliminated altogether. Bossidy explains that when the right people are in the right jobs it will become evidently clear.
The way everyone works together seamlessly and delivers the desired results will be a clear identifier. The people process begins with one-on-one assessments, but when developed and practiced as a total process, it becomes incredibly effective as an execution tool.
He explains that strategies all have a common, ground-level goal: to win over the customers and establish a competitive advantage. And this needs to be done within current financial restraints.
