How Leaders Mistake Execution for Strategy (and Why That Damages Both)

How Leaders Mistake Execution for Strategy (and Why That Damages Both) | Higher Education Business Strategy | Scoop.it

Good line in the comment section from Richard Lipscombe, "Frankly, I don't care anymore whether people confuse Strategy with Execution - what is more important to me is does one have a sustainable, workable, viable, simple, and agreeable (to consumers) revenue model."
