The strategy-to-execution gap is an enduring problem with no easy solution. As the Japanese proverb goes, “Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.” In their seminal HBR piece, Paul Leinwand, Cesare Mainardi, and Art Kleiner outlined what senior leaders must do to close the strategy-to-execution gap. We built on this research by going beyond the lens of the individual leader to investigate how the most successful teams bridge the gap. We wanted to unpack the how by identifying what sets these teams apart in terms of how they spend their time and the critical behaviors they engage in. To do this, we examined how 49 enterprise leadership teams spend their time and also looked at their perceived effectiveness on critical behaviors of a senior team. They also responded to items that corresponded to the Leinwand et al. framework, as detailed below.
