Stories about speed and success

Speed, to effective leaders, is not measured in terms of races won, but through two broad metrics, viz. reduced time to value and increased value over time, say the authors of Strategic Speed: Mobilize people, accelerate execution (Harvard).
You may have hired brilliant employees and conceived brilliant strategies, but unless you can reduce the time it takes for employees, leaders, teams, or initiatives to contribute to the enterprise in the manner and to the extent that they were meant to contribute – and then ensure that they continue to contribute – you won't really be accelerating execution, write Jocelyn R. Davis, Henry M. Frechette, Jr., Edwin H. Boswell.
