Summary

If you're a chief executive officer, your job is to execute. It’s written right into your title. But what does it mean, in terms of daily tasks, to be the company's top "executer?" After all, CEOs don’t actually build factories or sell products. It’s tempting, therefore, to view the CEO as primarily a thinker; someone who mulls and shapes strategy. That is a part of the CEO's job, of course. But the best CEOs know that strategy is just theory unless it’s actually translated into frontline routines - unless the rest of the company actually is executing the strategy.
