Hi, and welcome to another edition of our NST Weekly digest – a weekly summary of all the post we share on our website and on all our social media platforms.
This week’s theme is “Implementation”. We journeyed through the different levels and phases of strategy implementation in our various organizations in our bid to attain success and concluding with the understanding that for successful strategy implementation, we must ensure that our organizations are structured as a means to an end, and not an end in itself. Meaning that structure should follow strategy and not the other way round.

Article of the Week: Achieving Business Excellence

I’ve done all this work to see if I could uncover a pattern of business excellence. At last count, I have read and analyzed about 160,000 pages on best practices and winning strategies and condensed this information to a single page of bullet points…read more
Midweek Tonic: Build Your Organization to Execute
It goes almost without saying that one of the highest priorities of strategy implementation is building an organization capable of effective strategy execution.

The most appropriate end is the purpose for which the organization exists in the first place, as revealed by its strategy. Without coordination between strategy and structure, the most likely by products are confusion, misdirection, and splintered efforts within the organization.
