The demand to drive growth has never been greater. In order to just “meet” analyst growth expectations the average S&P company will need to generate nearly $1.5B in new revenues in the next three years. Unfortunately, current plans for growth have less than a 60% success rate unless companies can crack the code on strategy execution. To achieve this, senior leaders must figure out project prioritization and unlock capacity within their organizations. The key word here is “unlock,” which fundamentally means freeing up the mental capacity to successfully execute new growth strategies by stopping work on old ones. Begin unlocking your growth potential today.
