Executing Your Business Transf
How to Engage Sweeping Change Without Killing Yourself Or Your Business
Praise for Executing Your Business Transformation "This book reflects the authors' valuable experience in the trenches of some difficult cases, where egos, politics, and culture get in the way of making substantive, quick organizational change." -Neil Smith, managing partner, SmithO'Brien "Executing Your Business Transformation identifies the key problems facing every successful business and offers insightful and valuable strategies that not only protect but pave the way for continued success." -Steve Gill, vice president, product marketing and business development, ALLDATA LLC "Without evolution to respond to changing business conditions, organizations will die. This book really helps to explain this need and the constant requirement to avoid tactical and strategic lethargy. Get the message or go out of business-what could be more simple?" -Howard Charney, senior vice president, Cisco Systems, and cofounder, 3Com "Today everyone should know that organizations must transform. We spent the last decade (or more) learning that and seeing what happens when organizations either don't transform or fail to do it well. Executing Your Business Transformation provides a framework, examples, and questions that lead to the in-depth introspection every organization needs before and during transformation. I think the book may be even more valuable where leaders don't see the need to transform; maybe by reading it, they can see the error of their ways before it's too late." -Sean Morgan, professor, California State University, Chico "Transformational change is a tall order for any leader. If you are contemplating making sweeping change, you owe it to yourself and your people not only to read but to study this book. The authors make visible, in a holistic fashion, the critical aspects of any business that must be addressed to prevent waste and failure."? -Robert W. Lauridsen, CEO, Strategy Execution Challenge
