Quote of the Day | What comes first.. Strategy or Execution?

To quell the constant and popular argument in the business world, on what constitutes more importance and what precedes the other, is it strategy or execution? … here’s a quote from a business leader all the way from Taiwan, Morris Chang, CEO of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) (and yes… like you, I’ve never heard of him, but I value his thoughts).

The perfect antidote for the two camps who think one or the other is important. The truth is: BOTH STRATEGY & EXECUTION ARE INTERLINKED and INSEPARABLE!

It’s simple, really… the way I see it, anyone can dream up or imagine an strategy that on paper looks like a great game plan… but without execution, if you’re just sitting on it and no one takes any action, than that strategy is just a unexecuted plan!
