About the Presentation
Most organizations have trouble linking strategy to performance. According to current business literature and research, companies, on average, deliver only 60% of the financial performance their strategies promise. The literature and research also reveal that high performing companies managed to close the strategy-to-performance gap through better planning and execution. In many cases, companies don’t have process that links strategy and execution; therefore, these companies never capture the full value of the strategy or effectively map it to the needs of the organization. Strategy execution focuses on translating strategic goals into a structured portfolio of programs to meet organizational objectives. In this presentation the following strategy and program management topics will be presented and discussed: the gap between strategy and organizational performance; issues that prevent linking strategy and execution; creating a program portfolio to facilitate aligning strategy with financial and human resources to meet business goals; and developing a performance monitoring system to manage a strategic program portfolio.
