Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 04, 2013

AchieveIt, a leading provider of execution management and strategic planning software, announced the release of the first chapter of “10 Secrets of Execution.” Authored by AchieveIt Founder and Chief Execution Officer Scott Regan, the initial chapter, “Decide,” delves into the importance of focusing on the critical few organization imperatives, rather than the desired many.

The book is a follow-up to Regan’s popular seminar 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 at

“Study after study has shown that roughly only 10 percent of plans that get developed are ever executed,” Regan said. “The 90 percent failure rate is crippling businesses in all industries to the point that execution is now the new strategic imperative. This book is designed to provide easy-to-implement strategies that can have a profound and immediate impact on an organization’s business results.”

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.
