It was stated that the ability to execute is more important than a beautiful strategy. Why do organizations have difficulty in implementation? One problem is that strategies or business plans (or other fancy terms) are always changing, but the tools for measuring have not kept pace. Measurement is directional: it keeps management motivated on the strengths, focused on the weaknesses, and action conscious to overcome problems.
