Execution - The Discipline of getting things done
The discipline of getting things done
By Larry Bossidy & Ram Charan
‘Asystematic process of rigorously discussing
the HOWs and WHATs, questioning,
tenaciously following-through and ensuring
• 70% of strategic failures are due to poor execution of leadership
• Fundamental problem: CEOs think of execution as the ‘tactical’ side of business
and NOT as a discipline and part of the company’s strategy
• What a company’s leader wants to achieve & the ability of their organization to
Execution is a Discipline
Execution is the job of a
Execution has to be in the
constructive & persistent
- Execution doesn’t happen by chance, but through integrating and operating:
• BLOCK ONE : Leaders 7 essential behaviours
• BLOCK TWO : Creating Execution Culture
• BLOCK THREE : The Job No Leader should delegate- Having the right people
at the right place
•Know your people and business:
- If leader loses touch with day-to-day realities of business, wont have a feel for where the action is/ Ask tough
questions to get to the heart of the matter.
- Employees will lose confidence, they will know more about the business than the leader
- Get to know people and business involved ( micro level)
• Insist on Realism:
- Some talk about strengths eliminate weaknesses
- Don’t filter out bad news- address it
- Leaders who value realism will be just as interested in analysing what’s going wrong + what’s done right
• Set clear goals and priorities:
• Follow Through:
- Good leaders make people feel accountable by monitoring
- Employees become reflective of the work they do
• Reward the Doers:
- Performance should be rewarded and respected by the organisation
• Expand peoples capabilities via coaching:
- Observe | Provide feedback | Ask questions – as 80% of the learning happens outside the classroom
• Know yourself:
- Ability to be honest to yourself | Acceptance of reality
Authenticity: Who you are on the outside should be who you are on the inside. People spot fakers.
Self-Awareness: Know yourself , be comfortable in your own skin
Self-Mastery: When you know yourself you can master yourself, key to self-confidence. ( Ego in check,
take responsibility for behaviour, embrace change etc.)
Humility: Allows you to acknowledge mistakes, learn from them and over time create decision making
process based on experience
•The Basic premise is simple: Culture change gets real when your aim is
• You don’t need a lot of complex theory or employee surveys to use this
approach. You just need to change peoples behaviour so that they produce
Tell People clearly the results
you’re looking for
Discuss how to get those results as a
key area of the coaching process
Reward everyone who
gets specified results
If they come up short, you
rewards, give other jobs,
or let them go.
When you do these things consistently, you create a culture of getting things done.
WHY THE RIGHT PEOPLE ARENT IN THE RIGHT JOBS?
- Because Leaders don’t pay attention to people, but are too busy thinking
about how to make their companies bigger and better than competitors.
•Lack of Knowledge- The leaders may not know enough about the leaders
•Lack of Courage- The leaders may not have the courage to discriminate strong
and weak performers and take necessary actions.
•The psychological comfort factor- The leaders may pick people with whom
they’re comfortable (psychologically) rather than others who have better skills
for the job.
- Ultimately, choosing the right people creates sustainable competitive advantage.
- Dell out-competed Compaq, because Michael Dell took great pains to have the
right people at the right jobs – People who understood how to execute the
business model superbly.
WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
- The kind that energise people
- They’re decisive on tough Issues
- Get things done though others
- They Follow through
HOW TO GET RIGHT PEOPLE FOR THE RIGHT JOB?
