Management frameworks; aligning strategy thinking and execution.


Management frameworks; aligning strategy thinking and execution.

Kemp, Jacques and Andreas Schotter, Morgen Witzel.



205 pages




Kemp, a board and council member for various organizations, Schotter (strategy, Thunderbird School of Global Management), and Witzel (Centre for Leadership Studies, U. of Exeter, UK) explain how to integrate overarching frameworks into the management process, involving all key decision makers in all business units and functions to combat "silo" approaches to management and face complexities in organizations, thereby leading to greater efficiency. They focus on the connections between business strategy, organizational structure, and performance effects to demonstrate how a big picture overview allows a strategic approach to management. They show how frameworks that unify and connect all parts of an organization allow managers to harmonize planning, execution, and organizational structure and help the organization achieve its goals. They describe management frameworks and how they work, summarize and compare existing frameworks, and suggest how they can be used to guide executives. They outline design questions for the development of a framework, and consider portfolio, marketing, organizational, operational, reputational, and financial drivers, and performance excellence.
