Every company has a set execution capacity. It’s the maximum level of performance that an organization can achieve with its available time and resources. Yet most companies are not performing at their full potential.
So we set out to quantify the size of this execution problem. We surveyed over 2000 business leaders across 6 countries, 8 industries, and 4 different lines of business to build a benchmarks report that accurately represents the state of business execution today.
From Procurement to Accounts Payable, Order Management to Accounts Receivable, we measured performance, quantified its financial impact, and made recommendations for improvement.
