In a recent Forbes article, PMI CEO Mark Langley talked about why employees don’t always do what their CEOs tell them to do on major projects. Mr. Langley said there are three major factors that cause company leadership and other employees to not follow the CEO’s strategic lead:

  1. CEOs are busy and once the direction is given, they are often off to the next situation.
  2. Implementing strategy is difficult.
  3. Governance is not in place to fulfill the CEO’s direction.
