He gave many reasons for failure and explained each of them in detail using a graphical presentation. He said that there should be clearly defined goals and objectives, which should be communicated clearly, simply, and from time to time to avoid any confusion and the number of goals to be set should be minimum so as to give them a priority. Clear roles, responsibilities, and expectations should be set to assert accountability. He also mentioned that complexity is the enemy of execution and that tasks should be made as simple as possible and to achieve this an individual must encourage their team to challenge everything.
