What You Will Learn
Delta Developmental's Masterclass in Execution goes beyond talking about execution, showing leaders HOW to create the conditions for consistent exemplary execution.

About the Master-Practitioner
Scott Zimmerman is a four-time business leader and CEO whose teams have created nearly $1B in shareholder value. By day, he is the group CEO of five businesses. By night, he helps CEOs and executive teams across industries create breakthrough performances where others had failed. This masterclass is an apprenticeship with someone who lives in the trenches and is gifted at guiding implementation and change.
The Importance of Execution
There is rarely a shortage of ideas in organizations, but executing ideas and strategies remains a significant challenge. A Gartner poll showed that 75% of respondents struggle to implement their strategy or ideas, and Harvard Business Review reports three out of five companies rate their businesses weak on execution. This gap between ideas and execution has severe consequences for leaders and organizations.
Organizational success comes down to two fundamental moves: Creating new value for customers (ideas) and value creation for shareholders (the ability to execute those ideas). If you ask a leadership team to self-assess their skill in ideas and execution, on a scale of 1-10, you might see something like the math equation.
The importance of execution becomes clear when we consider which incremental improvement investment matters more.
If a leader builds one skill level better on ideas, their results only improve incrementally (i.e, from 6 to 7). Instead, if the leader invested in learning and building more skill with execution, in this case, from the rating of one to two, their results would improve exponentially (i.e. from 6 to 12).
Which incremental investment in effort is most effective?
Who is this for
This program is for leaders who are hungry to be more and do more, yet are challenged to move beyond fire fighting and being held hostage by short-term demands.
This course is for leaders who are hungry to put an end to the grind; looking to shift away from their forceful, effort-filled ways of leading. Leaders who want to use their authority and influence in better ways, so they can lead with greater intention, find more connection and meaning, and start having more fun. In the process, their teams will achieve more with less wasted effort.
