This episode is sponsored by The Agile PrepCast. PDU for PMP:: Paul R. Williams, PMP In many organizations, there is a familiar gap between what should get done and what does get done. This gap is commonly referred to as the “execution gap” and it represents an organizational leadership issue that is difficult to overcome. In his article Mind The Strategic Execution Gap Paul Williams (http://www.thinkforachange.com/aboutpaul) argues that we also have an “innovation gap” as well as a gap in strategy execution. The strategic execution gap is most often a result from a lack of focus and action between the strategic direction of the organization and its frenetic attempt to balance keeping the lights on and the customer happy. In our interview Paul defines the problem and we learn a lot about these various gaps -- how they come to be and how they represent a problem to our organizations. But of course we also discuss how project management and project leadership fits into all of this and how we project managers and project leaders can help overcome the issues.
