Excellence in Strategy and Execution Webcast
Why do good business strategies fail? Often, it's because those strategies don’t get communicated to the right people or embedded in the right processes. Despite longstanding awareness of the need to link strategy and execution, very few companies are able to turn good business intentions into good business practices.
Watch this Webcast to learn how you can orient operations with objectives to achieve strategic alignment, predictable performance, and confident decisions. Topics include a discussion of the barriers that hinder success, the role of SAP software in helping to synchronize strategy and execution, and a review of the benefits that better alignment can deliver. The program also features customer insights on how to build confidence and trust into the decision-making process.

John Hagerty, Vice President and Research Fellow at AMR Research, and Jonathan Becher, Executive Vice President and Head of Enterprise Solution Marketing at SAP, provide answers to these and other questions.
