Execution Blueprint- 'Why?' of Strategy  

Creating Executable Strategy - Overview

Typically organization jump from strategy blue-print/business plan right down to action. There is one more critical layer which forms the foundation for 'making-it-happen'. A strategy without an execution blueprint is like a high-level city map with partial navigation and missing the level of detail one needs to find a street. A good Execution-Blueprint looks at all aspects of making it happen including 'why? of strategy', 'how?' to make it happen, 'what-if?' the assumptions do not bear out, 'how to sustain?' the business results. This Chapter provides an overview of Execution-Blueprint. Over and above this, it also shares on how the 'Execution-Feasibility' of a strategy is included during the strategic planning phase.
