Even with the best structure and strategy, if we fail to execute with consistency and quality, we face a difficult path to excellence.
The challenge in getting results lies in consistency and reliability of execution. For example, a school district might purchase a reading program for all schools to implement. Some leaders apply the program with fidelity, some apply it with little effort, and others don’t apply it at all. The problem is not necessarily the program, but rather its execution. In other words, we are great sometimes, good most of the time, and on occasion we have real issues. Obviously, we need to be great always.
