The Silent Killers of Strategy - Implementation and Learning

This article, written in 2000 by Michael Beer from the Harvard Business School and Russel Eisenstat from McKinsey, highlights six key barriers to implementing programmes and policies. Topics covered by these barriers include leadership, communication, prioritisation and coordination. Discussion of these barriers is supplemented by several examples from the private sector. Recommendations for how these barriers can be addressed and overcome are also included. This article will be of interest to policymakers and service providers with management responsibilities.
