Implementation

Accelerating value creation through agile and disciplined implementation.

Key challenges

Defining strategic intent without implementation is pointless, but implementation without intent is purposeless. Today implementation must happen in parallel with strategy development. Gone are the days where strategies are defined every 3 years during a 5-6 months process. We are often asked:

  • What is the right level of analysis before implementation?
  • How can one create the right culture around continuous implementation?
  • How do we work in an agile way without losing control and experiencing large budget overruns?
  • When should you implement yourself versus getting external help?
  • How can we track value creation?
