The initiative’s agreement has been signed by STC Group CEO, Dr. Khaled Biyari and by Brightline Executive Director Ricardo Vargas.
Launched early in 2017 by the Project Management Institute (PMI), the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and the Agile Alliance, the Brightline Initiative is a non-commercial coalition dedicated to helping executives bridge the expensive and unproductive gap between strategy design and delivery.
“STC has a profound expertise and a renowned success in building and executing strategies. We are looking forward to joining a coalition that brings together leading organizations and academics worldwide to address the critical business issue of successful strategy delivery,” says STC Group CEO, Dr. Khaled Biyari. He added: “For STC, this capability is core to capturing emerging opportunities in the MENA while remaining a leader in ICT and managing overall challenges over the coming years.”
A report from a global multi-sector survey of 500 senior executives conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and commissioned by the Brightline Initiative found that nearly 90% of global survey respondents admit they fail to achieve all their strategic goals because they don’t implement well, and more than half (53 percent) agree that inadequate delivery capability puts them at a competitive disadvantage.
Brightline executive director Ricardo Vargas says, “The Brightline Initiative welcomes STC to our growing ranks as we help organizations bridge the strategy implementation gap in an era of disruption and social and economic challenges. It is important to highlight that strategies are just passive plans on a piece of paper unless organizations find ways to impact employee behaviors and instill new ways of working together.”
