  • "Clear Thinking on a Misunderstood C..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Richard Rumelt, in Good Strategy Bad Strategy,makes strategic thinking readily available all. There is a lot of clear thinking here that will enlighten readers. For example, aspiration is not strategy. JFK proposed that we go to the moon in a decade. That was technically possible. Going to Mars is technical available to us as well. However, since Kennedy’s moon shot project people have been confusing aspiration with strategy. The implication is that if we just set goals they will be attained. Rumelt sets the reader straight. Rumelt goes beyond telling readers What they should do to telling the readers HOW to do it. Rumelt strays into military strategy at times and his examples can be a little long for my taste. However, this book is still a worthwhile read. After this book interested readers may want to pickup Joan Magretta’s (2011) Understanding Michael Porter and then tackle Michael Porter’s (1998) Competitive Strategy. A third volume, a favorite of mine, is Henry Mintzberg’s Strategy Safari which introduces the reader to all of the basic schools of strategic planning thought. He makes the argument that there is no such thing as strategy and cognitive scientists just might agree. The reading of Sean Runnette is very good. Enjoy.

    Developing and implementing a strategy is the central task of a leader, whether the CEO at a Fortune 100 company, an entrepreneur, a church pastor, the head of a school, or a government official. Richard Rumelt argues that the heart of a good strategy is insight - into the true nature of the situation, into the hidden power in a situation, and into an appropriate response. He shows you how insight can be cultivated with a wide variety of tools for guiding your own thinking.

    Story

    Everyone is familiar with Toyota as a brand. Some are aware of the Toyota manufacturing process. Being aware of the process is not being familiar and being familiar does not imply one is conversant with how it really works. Along comes Jeffrey Liker (The Toyota Way) and Gary Convis with The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership filling any gaps in our understanding. Importantly, Liker and Convis use a narrative approach to presenting their material. They use multiple examples and anecdotes to illustrate the concepts they are reporting. Their use of vignettes to describe how lead leadership works, certainly nourishes the reader’s understanding. Readers interested in manufacturing, Japanese culture, leadership, adult education, and other related topics will find this volume most informative. There is no need to be an engineer, Liker and Convis make the topic readily available to the general reader. The narration of Jim Meskimen is very good.

    The missing link to long-term Lean success! Despite the fact that companies worldwide have adopted Lean production, none has sustained the same levels of excellence as Toyota. Why? Leadership. In The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership, Jeffrey Liker and Gary L. Convis, a former executive V.P. and managing officer of Toyota, help executives and senior managers get employees to refocus their efforts - from simply performing their singular function to continuously improving in collaboration across the organization.

    Story

    Many of us have well thumbed copies of Michael Porter’s Competitive Strategy. Now Joan Magretta has made his work available to a wider audience with Understanding Michael Porter: The Essential Guide to Competition and Strategy. Think of Magretta’s book as a companion to Michael Porter and you will be right on point. Realistically, Porter’s book is not overly difficult to understand, but it does take study and some background. The strength of Magretta’s work is that Porter’s models become clear immediately. If you have read and understand Michael Porter this book is still valuable for its concise, relevant example and context. Readers from business settings will primarily benefit by this book, but decision makers from the not-for-profit sector will gain from reading this book as well. Read very well by Erik Synnestevdt .

    Michael Porter’s groundbreaking ideas on competition and strategy have unfolded over three decades and are spread across a dauntingly long list of publications. Every manager can name individual pieces of his work - competitive advantage, the value chain, five forces - but no one, not even Porter himself, has put the entire puzzle together to reveal it as an integrated whole. This lucid, concise audiobook does just that. This book provides an engaging summary of Porter’s ideas and an invaluable synthesis of this important body of work....

  • Time Management Made Simple

    "A Cut-and-Paste Book"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I don't enjoy this as much as Tracy's other works because it was very obviously cut-and-paste from aforesaid other works. It's like he took a few podcast series and spliced them together, without bothering to order them into an overarching narrative. It's always a challenge to keep the big picture in mind when listening to an audiobook, but when there isn't a coherent structure, it's harder to retain anything. Although I've listened to this book several times, I couldn't tell you one distinctive thing I remember about it that wasn't in his other books. The lack of structure makes the resulting read not very actionable.

  • The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals

    "Great ideas, meh execution"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The ideas in this book are dynamite. They make sense; when I'm listening, I want to get up and go and implement them. I've listened to it a few times, and I'll continue to relisten to it whenever I feel I need a reminder on how to set goals and achieve them. I've recommended it to colleagues at work. The reason I don't give it five stars is I don't care for all the readers on it, and because it's a little too much of an advertisement for the company that wrote it. Still, it's definitely worth listening to despite its performance shortcomings.

  • "Great for small biz & for personal ..."

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    I wasted time, by not getting around to Mr. Calloway's books, thinking it only applied to corporations and bigger organizations. This message is perfect at any level. I think it's easy to get spun around and get off course with attempting to do too much, looking for the silver bullet, making our operation and mission way too complicated. I believe most people will tend to say "this is too simple". But it is. We make it too hard. The hard part is stopping to evaluate, making changes and implementing the ideas we know we should be doing.

    Winners in business aren't the ones who do the most things; the winners are the ones who do the most important things. Be the Best at What Matters Most is about the one essential strategy for those who are or want to be business leaders, entrepreneurs, owners, or managers. Simplify, focus, and win by outperforming all your competition on those things that create real value for the customer. This is about substance, not flash, and the ultimate "wow" factors of high-quality performance, consistency, and relentless improvement.

In Great by Choice, Collins and his colleague, Morten T. Hansen, enumerate the principles for building a truly great enterprise in unpredictable, tumultuous, and fast-moving times. The new study: Great by Choice distinguishes itself from Collins’s prior work by its focus on the type of unstable environments faced by leaders today.

    Why do only a few people get to say "I love my job?" It seems unfair that finding fulfillment at work is like winning a lottery; that only a few lucky ones get to feel valued by their organizations, to feel like they belong. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders are creating environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things.
