By now, most executives and managers realize that. Unfortunately, most organizations are still far better at developing strategy than at executing it.

Now fully updated, this Second Edition reflects new research at Wharton and beyond, and extensive additional input from managers confronting and solving execution-related problems. In an expanded applications section, Hrebiniak shows how to apply his model to a wide range of challenging, real-world situations. This edition offers new chapters with deeper analysis of strategy execution in global environments, and of linking project management with strategy. Responding to many requests, Hrebiniak has also added an entirely new chapter on service organizations.
