WinningAccording to Jack Welch, strategy is very straightforward in life. On page 165 of Winning, he says, “You pick a general direction and implement like hell.” And again on page 167 he says, “Strategy, then, is simply finding the big aha and setting a broad direction, putting the right people behind it, and then executing with an unyielding emphasis on continual improvement.”

ChessSo much of what we do as project managers is to make winners out of our people on projects.

To be on time, on schedule, and within scope would define a winning project.

Is Mr. Welch correct with his philosophy “Its all in the sauce”?

Can strategy be that simple?
