Strategy: 90% execution and 10% planning, which is most important to hire. My hypothesis is that business success is 90% execution and 10% planning. It seems execution is vital to success, but do you agree with the 90-10% split? You are a manager who has the choice (only one) of, a) hiring a super strategic planner and an average implementer, or b) hiring a super implementer and an average strategic planner. The choice you make directly impacts your job and pay. What choice do you make? Why?
