    In Repeatability, Chris Zook and James Allen - leaders of Bain & Company’s influential Strategy practice - warn that complexity is a silent killer of profitable growth. Successful companies endure by maintaining simplicity at their core. They don’t stray from, or regularly discard, their business model in pursuit of radical renovation. Instead, they build a “repeatable business model” that produces continuous improvement and allows them to rapidly adapt to change without succumbing to complexity.

    Story

    I know, this is a bold statement, but entirely true. This is THE best business book I've ever read because it takes something that is so instumental to a business' success (strategy) and give some ways to make sure that humans don't overcomplicate it or take their eye off it. I've had experience working with Bain Consulting, and will tell you they have great minds and really validate whatever they put their name on. For instance, the research that they performed and site in this book was proved out via completely different ways (analyzing pure data/attributes of companies *and* via c-suite interviews). They found nearly identical results, so you can feel confident that focusing on your core business, incorporating feedback from frontline employees and customers, and creating a way to translate nebulous strategy into daily activities is the best way to replicate your company's greatest successes over and over.

    If you are an executive or frontline manager, this is a must read. In fact, you should commit it to memory.
