To execute effectively, we need to ensure that we have the CAPABILITY TO DELIVER - resources, people and capital. Our people are critical to our success and we need to ensure that we have COMMITMENT to the strategy and the plan from Owners, Managers and the Team by engaging them in the process and by enhancing their skills, knowledge and behaviours. Focusing on these 3 factors - STRATEGY CAPABILITY COMMITMENT - will significantly lift the performance of your team and your business.
