Strategy 2 Execution helps leaders and their organizations to successfully transition strategies to effective execution
S2E equips leaders and their organizations to achieve the full potential of their strategic intent. Surveys show that strategic programs frequently fail to meet expectations. When strategic initiatives fail, valuable resources and opportunities are wasted and the targeted ROI is not achieved.
It is our mission to close the execution gap by helping you manage the complexities of strategy execution.

WE BUILD OUTCOMES-BASED INDUSTRY MODELS for large organizations. They provide the foundation for identifying what initiatives and offering you and partners can launch that together will provide targeted client performance.
WE DESIGN OPERATIONS / WAR ROOMS that bring together key participants in the strategy execution process for the purpose of sharing ideas, envisioning, demonstrating new capabilities, monitoring targeted outcomes and providing a safe environment for strategy execution leadership discussion.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT AND ADOPTION
The Strategy 2 Execution method is designed to identify and provide focus on the targeted outcomes most impacted by changes in human behavioral. We have worked with many of the leading Change Management Methodologies. The method and our team provide increased confidence to client leaders of great change by simplifying and introducing to Leaders’ a simplified set of techniques based on the top Change Management Methodologies. We equip leaders to successfully navigate those all-important ‘in the moment’ conversations that can occur at any time with the key change agents who can make or break a successful change effort.
Our understanding of the expectations of all stakeholders allows S2E to help your organization develop and execute the change processes that are required to achieve your targeted outcomes. Ron Lamb is experienced in many Change Methodologies, and certified through Prosci, a leading provider of Change Management training & methodologies.
Ron Lamb, in founding Strategy 2 Execution, had a vision to create step-improvement over current Strategy Execution ‘best practices’. Surveys show that strategy execution programs fail over 75% of the time to meet leaders’ expectations. When strategic initiatives fail, valuable resources are wasted and opportunities and careers lost.
We’ve now completed over fifteen years of systematic research and work with clients with multiple ‘bet the business’ challenges. We have continued to improve upon the principles, unified method, visualizations, technique and tools that serve to build strategy execution confidence that targeted outcomes will in fact be achieved. Strategy 2 Execution is completely focused on creation of step improvement over the way existing methods and tools are applied.

“Ron Lamb has figured out a new way to provide structure to the very unstructured environment where most initiatives live. suspect that in a few years, everyone will wonder what they did without it.”
“Our team of energy firms and the DOE weren’t sure we were working on the right things until we tried the Language of Execution. After a one day session we had a clear roadmap. For the first time we all understood what it would take to achieve our objectives. It has been our guide for the past year”
