Strategy or Execution: Which is More Important?

“…any seasoned strategist knows that strategy is not just sloganeering. It is the series of choices you make on where to play and how to win to maximize long-term value. Execution is producing results in the context of those choices. Therefore, you cannot have good execution without having good strategy.

In this June 1, 2012 article in Strategy+Business online magazine, the authors argue that both good strategy and good execution are required for sustainable success.

More from the article:
