Strategy to Execution Framework

A Guide to Strategic Business Analysis for Enabling Business Transformation


The strategy-to-execution process is a dynamic framework designed to bridge the gap between strategic planning and implementation within organizations. It focuses on programs rather than projects, emphasizing the alignment of business outcomes with strategic goals. This process acknowledges the complexity, ambiguity, and unpredictability inherent in organizational change initiatives. Programs, which are temporary and have their own structures, involve multiple work-streams or projects that converge to deliver overarching business outcomes. The adaptive nature of programs necessitates periodic alignment with evolving organizational strategies and environmental factors.
