THE EXECUTION LEADER BY FRANCIS ABBAH

“Most strategy problems are not problems with the strategy at all. Most strategy problems are purely execution problems.” – Francis Abbah

There are several responsibilities of a leader, and part of a leader’s responsibilities is that of developing a strategy for the very vision and purposes of their entities to be achieved within a particular time frame. And strategies are formed when there is a vision for the very entities that leaders are part of.

However, strategies alone do not make a leader and his or her people attain the set vision and purposes of their entities. For most leaders are able to draft strategies for their entities, and in most of these instances, the visions of their entities are still not attained- whether it is in the short term or in the long term.

Strategies are good, however, strategies alone do not yield much results. No matter how detailed a strategy is drafted by a leader, without proper execution, the strategy will still not yield much results for the very entities that the leaders are part of.

Most leaders are good at drafting strategies for their entities. Hence, the problem really isn’t about the strategy. For most strategy problems are not problems with the strategy at all. Most strategy problems are purely execution problems.

How effectively leaders and their people execute their strategies is what will determine whether the vision and purposes of their entities will be attained in both the short term and the long term.

Great leaders do not only have great visions for their entities, but they, together with their people, are also good at executing the plans and strategies they have for the very vision and purposes of their entities to be attained within a given time frame. Also, great leaders are not just great communicators, for they back up their communication with a lot of execution to ensure that what they say, is actually implemented.

For execution to take place effectively, then leaders will need to take into consideration the three major components of an entity, which are as follows; Strategy process, Operational process and People process.

First, for execution to take place effectively, then a clear and good strategy must be drafted by the leader and his or her people which spells out what needs to be done within a particular time frame for the vision and purpose of their entity to be attained.

Secondly, leaders will need to consider the Operational process of an entity. The Operational process shows the decisions and actions that need to be undertaken each day by both leaders and their people to ensure that the visions and purposes of their entities are attained.

Lastly, leaders will need to take into consideration the People process within their entities. The people process shows who will be responsible for what activities, actions and roles that will ensure that both the short-term and long-term vision of their entities are attained.

Strategies are good, and effective leaders understand that. However, they back up their plans and strategies with effective execution at all times.
