Why strategies often fail
The best-laid strategies of any organisation are useless without proper implementation. This is far from straightforward, however, as corporate strategy is by its nature conceptual and often complex.
Here’s what the Executives* said:
*Source – The Economist Intelligent Unit
Fortune 1000 Companies. Sample – 587 Execs, 52% C-suite, 48% Senior Managers
Strategies fail because the C-suite executives focus on:
Delivery of short term results and not paying sufficient attention to implementation processes.
Operational challenges rather than oversight, communication and support for strategic initiatives.
Doing everything on the list instead of selecting higher priority strategic projects and ensuring resourcing for them.
Moving to the new vision and transformation without formalising and standardising processes to analyse and record lessons learned.
Pushing next level senior executives to perform better rather than hiring and developing strategy execution skills.

I took a mixed basket with years of experience, wisdom, value-add, expertise and frustration to Jeff’s door and with calm and collective business insight, he sifted through the mix and found a clear path to a practical, strategic process. There is real, solid, measurable value in the “Lomey Method”, regardless of the size of your business or challenge.
Antony Sipho Sibanda
Chief Executive Officer @ Generator And Plant Hire (SA)
Jeff’s approach to strategy is one of the most realistic, simple, yet dynamic approaches i have experienced in over 15 years of being involved with corporate strategy and vision execution. His team takes time to learn the business, role players and individuals involved before getting the team in one room to unpack the journey and how it relates to all stakeholders. This tactful approach quickly exposes weak links in the team, perceptions that need clarity and any mis-alignment on the vision and road-map for the business. Time is then dedicated to building a tangible strategic trajectory the entire team identifies with and takes ownership for milestones in execution. My business would not have survived the last 12 months without Jeff’s support and input, period!

Jeff is an immaculate and visionary strategic facilitator. The lessons that he taught me in emotional intelligence and building my management team stayed with me for years.
Sales Lead @ Microsoft Australia
I was fortunate enough for Jeff to be my team’s coach during our Group Leadership Development Program. During this time Jeff provided my team and I key guidance and feedback which enabled us to consciously evaluate and accelerate our immediate performance and ongoing potential.
Jeff brings a fantastic mix of direct questioning which can stop you in your tracks and take stock of your actions with more profound techniques which provide you the opportunity to reflect on your approach.
His ongoing connection with his past students also demonstrates his commitment to seeing through his work and his commitment to results.
I spent a week in an intensive leadership course with Jeff as my personal coach. It is difficult to sufficiently convey just how impactful the experience was… It combined practical leadership advice, amazing team building, and an intense psychological learning experience. I believe the latter was the most valuable to me, as the coaching we did before and throughout helped me to understand how I work in groups and how to build a highly functioning team. It also helped me think at a much deeper level about what makes for effective people leadership and how I can use my skills to motivate our teams to a common cause. Last by not least, the group of people in our team and in the wider group was world-class. It was a privilege to meet them all, to work with Jeff, and to experience the amazing Dimension Data culture in Johannesburg. I highly recommend Jeff’s work.
