„Kultura je důsledkem způsobu, jakým si vedete a jak řídíte firmu.“

„The hardware of a computer is useless without the right software. Similarly, in an organization the hardware (strategy and structure) is inert without the software (beliefs and behaviors).“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done


„But if you have to choose between someone with a staggering IQ and an elite education who’s gliding along, and someone with a lower IQ but who is absolutely determined to succeed, you’ll always do better with the second person.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„The foundation of changing behavior is linking rewards to performance and making the linkages transparent.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„The behavior of a business’s leaders is, ultimately, the behavior of the organization. As such, it’s the foundation of the culture.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„Execution has to be a part of a company’s strategy and its goals. It is the missing link between aspirations and results. As such, it is a major—indeed, the major—job of a business leader. If you don’t know how to execute, the whole of your effort as a leader will always be less than the sum of its parts.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„An environment of fast growth can cover a multitude of sins, but an era of slow growth will magnify every shortcoming of every person in the business, especially the leaders.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„people think of execution as the tactical side of business, something leaders delegate while they focus on the perceived “bigger” issues. This idea is completely wrong. Execution is not just tactics—it is a discipline and a system. It has to be built into a company’s strategy, its goals, and its culture. And the leader of the organization must be deeply engaged in it. He cannot delegate its substance. Many business leaders spend vast amounts of time learning and promulgating the latest management techniques. But their failure to understand and practice execution negates the value of almost all they learn and preach. Such leaders are building houses without foundations.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done


„Competition for the best leaders will be intense. One way to ensure that you have the right people in the right jobs in this rapidly shifting environment is by writing job descriptions for the kind of people you need in each job as it will exist tomorrow, then match those descriptions against the talents and abilities of the peole holding those jobs today. If you don’t have the right leaders for the environment, then it is incumbent to move quickly and make the necessary changes. You must also begin now to cultivate the leaders of the future, testing and evaluating people for their ability to execute in the face of new challenges and circumstances. Operations“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„At a meeting in a formal, hierarchical setting, a powerful player can get away with killing a good idea. But informality encourages people to test their thinking, to experiment, and to cross-check.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„If you can’t describe your strategy in twenty minutes, simply and in plain language, you haven’t got a plan.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„Operations To execute well there must be accountability, clear goals, accurate methods to measure performance, and the right rewards for people who perform. But now, more than ever before, leaders need to design flexible operating plans. In the past a company might make one or perhaps two profound changes in its operations each year.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done


„There’s a saying we recently heard: We don’t think ourselves into a new way of acting, we act ourselves into a new way of thinking.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„Identifying goals requires a level of savvy and expertise to achieve the right balance. That, in turn, requires the realism and the knowledge of the business and the people that constitute the first two of our seven essential behaviors. Choosing the wrong goals can be disastrous. All too often the wrong goals are set because the leader isn’t realistic about the ability of the people to achieve them. Articulating the right goals is the first step. The people in the organization then have to execute and that means setting priorities and benchmarks.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„Without execution, the breakthrough thinking breaks down, learning adds no value, people don’t meet their stretch goals, and the revolution stops dead in its tracks. What you get is change for the worse, because failure drains the energy from your organization. Repeated failure destroys it.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done

„EXPAND PEOPLES’ CAPABILITIES. The fundamentals of this essential behavior don’t change. Even in tough times you can find ways to provide education and training as an investment in the company’s future. Even though promotions may be few and far between in this toxic environment, you can still find ways to stretch and test your people. It goes without saying that you need to do precise, accurate, and candid appraisals, but be sure you are looking for the qualities that matter amid the current turmoil: energy, courage, honesty, integrity, and perseverance. You need people who can roll with the punches, not people who are whiners and naysayers. You also need to rethink which people are more likely to rise to the top in the new environment as your organization’s strategy evolves.“ Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done
