Ron Lamb, Founder & Managing Director
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 is an accomplished senior business and IT leader offering advisory and engagement management services for building and executing business aligned IT strategies for premier large-scale firms. The S2E method that he developed answers performance-based key questions in an enterprise context using data-driven strategic frameworks and links strategy, change management to enterprise architecture and the technologies that enable organizations to increase revenues and delight customers . Ron helps business and IT leaders make timely and insightful financial and operational decisions.
As a management consultant he is skilled at setting the right pace for increasing maturity of strategy and execution planning and delivery and develops teams who know how and when to leverage best practices and when to “keep it simple”. Cross-leveraging deep IT and business experience into high tech environments is a special area of expertise.
