Excellent book from some of the best business men in the world. "Execution" gives very good insights about building company success, but also developing leadership and ensuring personal success. When one of the best CEOs in the world talks about strategy, execution and results, you should listen. If you are a manager, there's no good excuse for you not to listen to this program.
The contents of the audiobook are superb, however, the narrators make it boring and after a couple of hours it is very difficult to keep focused due to the unpleasant voices and asian accent.
But the E-Myth series by Michael E. Gerber is much more helpful for business guidence. It has more pratical tips for small business, while Execution is more for big executive types.
You have got to be an idiot to enjoy this book. I recognize some great voices but one of the voice is just questionable. The inflection and tone of the voice is just horrible.
Please dont buy this book. The content is very bad and one of the voices will leave you lost.
This is a great book. it is written in a language everyone will understand and it has some very usefull advice to leaders on all levels,in companys of all sizes. Some critics has commented that the book is too heavily inspired by GE?s Jack Welch and his thoughts and doings. I found that this book was the perfect supplement to Jack Welch?s selfbiografy Straight from the gut, because jack in his book only touches the issues in a superficial way. This book digs in a lot deeper. So buy Straight from the gut first and then Execution.
Outstanding advice for all stakeholders to grasp the milestones/ solutions necessary for seamless execution of strategic goals.
This book was an easy read with a very disciplined strategy to help you get things done. I loved that the authors provided real life cases study examples and discussed the real questions that need to be asked in any business. The three core processes (People, Strategy, and Operations) are broken down and discussed in a way that is easy to digest. It is also easy to directly relate to your current leadership role to improve your team's performance. Overall, it is very useful in helping you achive focus.
This was an interesting listen with a lot of usable information. It was a worthy investment of my time and money. It seemed like a textbook at times and probably had about one third of it as extraneous information.
I liked the way the authors alternated narration in the audiobook.
