Strategic Business Execution is an emerging field that focuses on getting “big and complex” things done in today’s fast paced environment. The basic premise is simple: having good strategies are simply not enough; good execution is required to achieve real and tangible benefits. For example, in a recent study by The Economist surveying C-level executives of world-class organizations, 88% of executives say executing strategic initiatives successfully will be essential or very important for their organizations’ competitiveness; yet 61% acknowledge their firms struggle to bridge the gap between strategy and implementation.

 Te Wu is CEO of PMO Advisory LLC, a management consulting firm that specializes in Strategic Business Execution including portfolio, program, and project management. Te has more than 20 years of experience in management consulting, having worked with industry leaders such as KPMG, Accenture, Oracle, Kraft, Standard and Poor’s, Chase Bank, LexisNexis, Lumina Foundation, and Weill Cornell. He also serves as a college professor at Montclair State University, Stevens Institute, and Touro Graduate School of Business teaching international business, organization change, and project management for the past 13 years. Te is one of few, estimated at less than 50 in the world, professionals certified in Portfolio (PfMP), Program (PgMP) and Project Management (PMP). He is also a researcher, author, and speaker.
