    Any strategy that’s too complicated to execute isn’t a strategy — it’s a
    book report. Here are three steps for breaking down complex strategies into
    actionable, executable steps.

    Professor Sull – Really enjoyed the article and video and have shared with
    others as part of our strategic planning process. I created a summary in
    Power Point and posted to Slideshare (dot)
    net/modigs/simplify-your-strategy-14075165 for others to apply these
    concepts to their business.

    Great Video. Back to Basic. Simplicity is the key. 

  16. Professor Sull is on target. If you’re interested in what he has said, you
    may want to check my most recent post. I’d be happy to discuss your
    planning approach. johnson-woodford.blogspot.com

    Excellent points here! For additional reading I recommend ‘Simplified
    Strategic Planning’ by Bradford & Duncan with Tarcy. Thanks, HBR, for this
    insightful video!

  18. Say no more – that’s all we need to know.

    We found that Donald Sull, London Business School professor, poses three
    questions to break down complex strategies into actionable steps.

  20. A book report? I don’t think you see the value of complexity.

    Prof. Sull @simple_rules “Any #strategy that is too complicated to execute
    isn’t a strategy, it’s a book report” http://ow.ly/lcoK8

  23. Prof. Sull’s definition of strategy (how a firm creates, captures and
    sustains economic value) is the same as that of a business model. What,
    hence, is the difference between those 2?
