What is strategy execution?

An effective agile strategy should assess your position, identify value streams, define your objectives, and set the key results you need to achieve them. The way this aligns with decision-making and the actions you take is called strategy execution. 

As with anything agile, this process is not waterfall or linear in nature. It involves constant learning and adaptation as you go along – and it's unique to your organisation.

Agile strategy execution can be broken down into four key steps:

  • Planning: establishing the umbrella goal and approach to execution across the corporate, business, and functional strategy.
  • Alignment: coordinating all your goals before you execute the strategy by setting values and timelines.
  • Execution: all your decision-making comes together here, using cross-functional communication.
  • Assess & Adapt: understand what is working and what is not, and make timely adjustments.

Discover Quantive Results

Quantive supports enterprises to execute their strategic objectives effectively by creating clear lines of sight between their strategy, priorities, and everyday work. Its purpose-built solutions expand your digital transformation capabilities by improving strategic agility from the top down.

Quantive Results uses the objectives and key results (OKR) framework to consolidate data and insights, connecting you and your people to a shared mission in one platform. It helps you understand what's working and what's not and how to adjust your approach to improve.
