High-performing organizations understand the need to create quantifiable and measurable objectives first, and then build plans to achieve the objectives second.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
AchieveIt, a leading provider of execution management and strategic planning software, announced the release of the second chapter of CEO Scott Regan’s book, “10 Secrets of Execution.” The Atlanta-based entrepreneur unveiled secret No. 2 – Measure – which addresses the importance of building metric-driven strategic and operational plans.
The book is a follow-up to Regan’s popular keynote of the same name and provides an in-depth look at the 10 most important ingredients of a results-driven culture. Drawn from Regan’s 24 years as a strategy and operations executive and consultant, during which he has been involved in the development and execution of more than 200 strategic and operational plans, the book affords readers time-tested insights and tips on how to implement a culture of execution and accountability within their own organizations. The book chapter is free to the public and available for download on the company website.
“Too many organizations fail to generate real business results because their plans are nothing more than a compilation of various task lists,” Regan said. “High-performing organizations understand the need to create quantifiable and measurable objectives first, and then build plans to achieve the objectives second. This chapter – Measure – provides best-practice advice and tips for creating plans that are driven by results-oriented metrics.”
Regan has worked with organizations throughout the United States and United Kingdom on strategic issues, strategy development, and creating organizational cultures that foster execution and innovation. His work has yielded tremendous results, including a $40 million turnaround in 24 months for one organization and a $47 million turnaround in less than four years for another. He is the recipient of numerous awards and has published dozens of articles and white papers.
