Flawless Execution + your team

Even when you know you’ve nailed your strategic goals, putting your plans into action can result in less than acceptable results. We call this the Execution Gap. It’s what happens in a changing business environment where competitors advance, resources get redirected and priorities change after your goals are set.

So how do you create a forward-leaning team that bridges the Execution Gap and reaches your goals — without getting derailed by the unexpected? Our team building and leadership consultants can equip your team with the Flawless ExecutionSM framework, a business methodology based on the high-performance, rapid learning methods elite military teams use to operate successfully in uncertain environments.

Case study

VMware

"My challenge was to build a successful sales organization in the wake of one of the largest mergers in tech history. With all of our talent and great products, we were faced with the prospect of a couple of down quarters sales-wise. A colleague of mine suggested I bring in Afterburner to help get my team hyper-focused.

Afterburner worked with our team on two things: One, getting the post-merger teams aligned around a very clear picture of the future. And two, Afterburner worked side by side with our entire team to get everyone in our globally dispersed team highly disciplined around execution.

Flawless Execution is our offense and defense! We are still working with Afterburner because you can’t argue with delivering four straight quarters of exceeding forecast and being a contributing factor to our stock price tripling."

The Debrief process has become a religion for us, and we've been able to take the Flawless ExecutionSM process and apply it to pretty much everything we do.
