Organizations these days are all about being nimble and innovative, but it is just as important for them to make the right decisions and move in the right directions. Balancing being stuck in analysis paralysis against reckless implementation can be tricky. Jack Bergstrand helps companies do just that and gain velocity in their business to move forward, with speed AND direction.

 

Jack Bergstrand is the founder of Consequent Business Strategy Consulting and Brand Velocity, where he works with a broad range of companies from Fortune 500 to startups. He is an expert in enterprise reinvention, and also formerly served as a senior executive at Coca-Cola. He is the author of, among others, The Velocity Advantage, which focuses on how businesses can achieve better and faster results.

 

It's easy to be fast, and it’s easy to study things to death, but it’s hard to be fast in a way that’s sustainable and produces results. Jack shares his insights about how companies can connect the dots between being stuck in planning mode and implementation that doesn’t stick, as well as the telltale signs organizations should look out for to find out if they don’t have velocity. This episode is bursting with Jack’s wisdom about creating and maintaining velocity, as well as why it’s important to bridge the gap between innovation and execution.
