Beyond Strategy: The Leader’s Role in Successful Implementation
Due to the staggering failure of leaders to deliver on the strategy promises, implementation has become an integral part of strategy discussions, in the last few years. In Beyond Strategy, Robin shifts his focus from why strategy implementation is important, which was the focus of his international best-seller Bricks to Bridges, to what leaders must now do differently. Something needs to change and it starts with the leaders.
Implementation of strategy can‘t simply be delegated. In this book, he provides the model, structure, and specific actions leaders must take to go beyond strategy and deliver on their promises. The book is based on the latest thinking and divided into the areas of the Implementation Compass™, a tool for implementing strategy that identifies the eight global best practices of implementation. Each chapter ends with the actions leaders must take. It is succinct, action orientated, and packed with useful tips and case studies.
The book is a breakthrough in understanding a leader’s responsibilities in strategy implementation.

IMPACT is a structured approach for implementing actions in 90 days and includes templates, guides and tools to ensure their successful implementation. IMPACT starts after you have created the plan of action and as your meeting or workshop is ending. In theory the plan of action is a fait accompli. In practice, it's a different story.
On returning to the organization and despite team member's best intentions, most action plans are not executed.
Most of us start out with the right intentions but somewhere between thought and action, we lose focus, we lose direction, we lose commitment. IMPACT bridges this gap.
IMPACT's design overcomes the most frequent challenges and guides the team to success through its structured approach. It is practical, easy to use and adopts best practices from around the world. At the heart of it is six Action Team Meetings (ATMs), held every two weeks to make sure the team is doing what they said they were going to do.
You receive a customized bag that includes: Team Mentor's, Leader's and Member's Guide; IMPACT Posters; Certificate; Wobblers; IMPACT Pens; USB Flash Disk containing templates and soft copies and other materials.
