"Generally, everyone is looking for successful execution and the one key ingredient for this is people," said Dr. Imtiaz Abdul Kader, founder and CEO, Perfected Execution. "When I practice strategy execution, I think about augmenting people to improve productivity, and to improve the capabilities so that you can get the desired form of execution. Let's not vent out people by adopting these technologies."

Technological approaches including data lake, data analytics and data visualization are critically important to achieve strategy execution.

"Data is the foundation of everything we need to use in the future. We need to first look at getting quality data that we can consume, and then draw capabilities that can assist us to visualize this data so that we can draw insights and foresights," Dr. Kader said.

In this video interview with ISMG, Dr. Kader also discussed:

  • Building capabilities to support strategic initiatives;
  • Technology-based enablement of business;
  • Is the adoption of generative AI a viable option for businesses?

Dr. Kader is a distinguished professional with a strong background in research and technology adoption. In the financial services industry within South Africa, he has experience as a CIO and is currently a business enablement head.
