                  Execution means the act of executing something.
                 It is important for every human being to imagine, to plan and to execute the plan for making dream true.
          The utmost importance is execution of dream, plan or imagination.
         An IT firm CEO Mike Roach states that Planning without execution is nothing but Hallucination.   
                  The following Garhwali folktale persuades that unless the person executes the plan the planning is useless.

                              Chipadau Kood -The Lizard House:  a Garhwali Folktale for Manager


                 The tale is about ancient time. There was lizard and she was houseless. Ii was sever winter time. There was snow fall and lizard took shelter on tree trunk. As soon as the night was progressing the lizard was shrinking. The cold was beyond her bearing power. The lizard took a vow that in morning she would build her own house. The lizard planned that she would collect twigs and would build a nest as birds do so.  She imagined that she had a nest and in winter she was living comfortably in her house.
       When the sun arose the lizard started taking sun. By sun rays she felt warm. Slowly and slowly she was comfortable and she forgot building her own house. By then, night started covering the area and she climbed on the tree. Again the snow fell and lizard vowed to build the nest. It was morning on another day and lizard started taking sun rays.  The lizard forgot building nest.
              For many nights, the lizard used to take vow for building nest and every morning after sun arising she used to forget building nest.
          On a dark night, there was heavy snow fall. The cold was again unbearable. The cold was so severe that lizard died of severe cold.  Had the lizard would have built nest she would be alive. 



                                   Planning and Execution

 “At some point, you have to stop planning and start doing” (unknown quote)
 Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan the authors of book ‘Execution: The Discipline of Things Getting Done” define ‘Execution’,” Execution is the great undressed issue in the business world today. Its absence is the single biggest obstacle to success and the cause of most of the disappointments that are mistakenly attributed to other causes.”
                David Arella states that following guidelines from the above book ‘Execution: The Discipline of Things Getting Done” are important for organizations from execution point of view -
1-There must be accountability, clear objectives, accurate methods for measuring the performances and right rewards for performers.
2- Following up the execution is part and partial of execution.
3-Usually managers blame to the strategy for the failures. However, in most of the cases, the results went wrong because executions were wrong or were not delivered.
4-In any effective and result oriented execution the interactions with ground people is the only key factors.
5- The interactions along with execution bring realities on the surface
6-Usually unrealistic plans fail.
7-Simple plan or goal is the key for successful execution. Everybody should know their responsibility for successful execution.
8-There should be robust discussion at the time of planning and each should be agreed upon planned methods.

                                    Barriers and Solutions in executing the plan

 A consulting firm Project Leadership states that there are following barriers in executing the plans
1-The strategy is not clear
2-The plan is overly optimistic
3-No one is responsible for results
4-The plan has not been actively deployed
5-The plan is static
 The consulting firm advices to overcome those barriers by taking following measure for successful execution-
1-Invest the time to clear the strategy or plan
2-Define priorities
3-Raise the stakes
4-Moblize the troops
5- Make an execution process
                   Therefore the mangers should take care about execution as soon as the strategy is formulated and concluded.
