At a Glance

The authors wrote this book with the aim of convincing potential clients to adopt the management and organizational strategies explained within. Further they explain how to introduce and maintain these strategies once adopted, confident that their clients will see unprecedented productivity and engagement in their business, institution, or even personal life. Broadly, the strategy outlined by the authors is to (1) identify goals whose completion will have the highest impact, (2) develop measures that can serve as day-to-day indicators of progress, (3) track progress on a simple and compelling scoreboard, and (4) create a regular and enforced system of accountability to progress. Each of these steps, and how they fit together, is explained in detail by the authors. Numerous case studies and testimonials are provided by the authors to validate the system they present.
