Is your business operating like the winning thoroughbred at the
Kentucky Derby? Or, does your business look and feel more
like a broken-down plow horse? This program will examine
two vital distinctions in the world of business: "strategy" and
"execution" and how these concepts are inextricably linked not
only for mega companies but small businesses as well.

You'll learn more about these concepts, how they apply in
your business, and specifically how they can be predictive
of future company performance. We will be discussing this
not only from the edge of the company, but also examining
how central functions within your company impact business
execution. We'll look at some real life examples of how
strategy must change to better support business execution
and financial performance. And, you'll learn about a
transformative project in the fire truck industry that provides
lessons for all.

What you will take away from this session
* "Strategy" and "execution" -- key distinctions.
* Simple tool for assessing where your business is today
    in terms of strategy and execution.
* Real world examples that everyone can relate to.
* Approach to examine where you are so you can develop
    a plan to get to where you want to be.
* CEO insights from people who live these issues every day.
* Great new book: Mass Customization by David Gardner
