From the top desk to the desk top. In many organizations there can be a wide divide and disconnect between the executives in their large corner offices and the managers and employees. The separation disconnect that I am referring to is between the strategy that is formulated by the executive team and the employees tasked to implement it. It is rare that there is a good connection between the two.

Executives exhibit this disconnect by being frustrated that their well formulated strategies are falling short of being implemented. Worse yet, the shortening tenure of CEOs with an increasing rate of their terminations is evidence that boards of directors are less patient if the financial results from the strategy are below their shareholder expectations.
