Strategy Execution Award

About the Strategy Execution Award

Since 2001, we have been studying Strategy Execution trends and best practices. During these last 12 years, Strategy Execution evolve from a token discussion to a top priority in most organizations.
Strategy execution is no longer the black hole that drains performance. Today’s organizations are aware of the performance lost through bad strategy execution. But in order to take the next step – to close that gap – organizations need a more detailed view of exactly where they are losing performance.
The Institute for Strategy Execution is the global accreditation body for strategy execution practitioners and organizations. The Strategy Execution Award ® is created by the Institute for Strategy Execution in order to publicly recognize organizations around the world that use a best-in-class approach to execute their strategy successfully and achieve breakthrough performance results.
Our assessment goes beyond the Balanced Scorecard and looks in different dimensions of strategy execution (extended 8 framework). Each dimension gives you execution strengths and weaknesses from a different perspective. Together, they give you a unique dashboard of your overall execution capability.
More and more organizations are inspired to initiate their journey toward strategy execution. Culminating with the participation in the unique global strategy execution award program: to be recognized as a role-model organization for realizing strategy. We invite you to participate in the exclusive strategy execution award 2019 to gain global recognition and visibility.
