For more than 25 years, Flemming Videriksen and Bjarni Snæbjörn Jónsson have worked with international organizations in strategic development and implementation. They have also written many excellent works on organizational leadership. With this professional weight behind them, they have spent the past ten years mapping how to create the optimal infrastructure for successful implementation of strategies. They did so in recognition of the fact that methods and tools in the field have basically not changed since the 1950s, while technology has revolutionized all other management disciplines.
They dreamed of designing a digital infrastructure that could help management with strategic governance by supporting all the complex processes and resource aspects associated with it. Together with some of the most skilled programming and UX specialists, they embarked on the development of DecideAct—a cloud platform that sets a new standard in strategy implementation.
In the summer of 2020, Flemming Videriksen and Bjarni Snæbjörn Jónsson set out to write an easy-to-read guide to modern strategy management. In Strategy Execution Management in a Nutshell, the authors generously share their knowledge of successful strategy implementation. After reading it, you’ll know everything you need to get started with Strategy Execution Management in the digital age.
Hand on heart, do you really take the management and execution of your strategy as seriously as your financial management?
If the answer is no...
The SEM Guide will help you rethink the way you have implemented strategies in the past. Your future efforts will have a much higher success rate.
