Execution is driven by people not by strategy

Strategic leaders spend a lot of time and efforts on developing robust strategic plans, vision, road maps and initiatives, and they should spend just as much time if not more on the "people" to ensure that execution per the vision is realized. Industry experts state that no matter how difficult the strategic planning is, execution can be 10 times harder however typically it is the flawlessness of the execution that separates the winners from the losers.
