Blue Note Consultants

Blue Note Consultants helps companies succeed with Strategy Execution by building Execution Leadership Excellence

40-60% of a company’s strategic potential is lost due to poor execution. It is an alarming failure rate, and the need to execute strategy properly has only increased with the accelerating speed of change and uncertainty in the modern business world.

Our clients are business leaders with a desire to create and execute their business strategies better and faster. That is what Blue Note Consultants help business leaders to master.

From our experience – gathered over three decades – the main reason for poor execution is that most companies miss to build ownership and accountability around their strategy and that requires Execution Leadership skills, which only few managers excel.

Execution Leadership Excellence is exactly what we are building at our clients.

Now imagine creating a culture of accountability, in which all your employees say I will do whatever it takes, and my word is my bond. Think about what that kind of company culture could do to your success in strategy execution.

By tapping into the Human Power of Promises and creating Bottom-Up Engagement, this universal leadership approach will enhance the likelihood of success with Strategy Execution – even in today’s world of rapid and unpredictable change.

In short, our approach is a way of developing Execution Leadership skills necessary among your company’s managers to be able to create the ownership and accountability that is required to execute strategies successfully. It is not so much about tools and processes – it is about learning to leading people to mutually engage around making the strategy deliver the desired results, while not losing focus on daily operations.
