INTRODUCTION

T
he execution of strategy is the biggest challenge business leaders face today. How do you move
out of business-as-usual mode and push your company forward?

At Advisory Works weve been fortunate to work with hundreds of companies over the last twenty
years, to help execute strategy and win in a changing market. Weve seen it all, and we understand the vital
role strategy plays in success. Strategy is all about exclusion saying no when needed - so you can focus
your resources on areas where you can win in the marketplace.

Business advisory is more than just financial numbers with some commentary or the latest piece of
standalone technology. As leaders and disruptors in the business advisory space, we partner with
companies to help them execute strategy and were at the forefront of research into this field. Our
framework the four cornerstones of strategic execution contains four key components that work
synergistically to bring strategy to life:

Culture: This is your values, your mindset, and your tribe.

Strategic Intent: Understanding what youre setting out to achieve, and building a plan to achieve it.

Disciplined Execution: The best plan in the world will fail without a way of achieving it. Without
disciplined execution, nothing actually happens.

High-Performance Leadership: Leading your people to get things done.

In this guide, we outline our research framework for successful strategic execution and show you how the
four cornerstones work together to bring your strategy to life.
