Balancing planning and execution

In the digital age, organisations have been forced to respond to their customer demands and market trends in a quick and agile manner. This means that strategy, planning, execution, and alignment all need to work closer together. Planning specifically, needs to be more agile and iterative in order to ensure the organisation can evolve and thrive.

Only 46% of COOs surveyed, stated that digital strategy is being effectively delivered company-wide, and at sufficiently cohesive levels

84% of surveyed organisations also state that it’s the CIO who’s championing the digital transformation

Align strategy and execution to ensure transformation success

Organisations should ensure their planning process is agile and shortens the timelines in which execution should commence in order to deliver pockets of value more frequently. The days where leaders take a long time to plan the way forward are long past. This process needs to become a daily activity, which ensures that the organisation can execute promptly to deliver tangible value.
