This is a summary of Patrick M. Lencioni's The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business
There is a competitive advantage out there, arguably more powerful than any other. Is it superior strategy? Faster innovation? Smarter employees? No. New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni argues that the seminal difference between successful companies and mediocre ones has little to do with what they know and how smart they are and more to do with how healthy they are. In this book, Lencioni brings together his vast experience and many of the themes cultivated in his other best-selling books and delivers a first: a cohesive and comprehensive exploration of the unique advantage organizational health provides.
Simply put, an organization is healthy when it is whole, consistent, and complete; and when its management, operations, and culture are unified. Healthy organizations outperform their counterparts, are free of politics and confusion, and provide environments where star performers never want to leave. Lencioni's first nonfiction book provides leaders with a groundbreaking, approachable model for achieving organizational health - complete with stories, tips, and anecdotes from his experiences consulting to some of the nation's leading organizations. In this age of informational ubiquity and nanosecond change, it is no longer enough to build a competitive advantage based on intelligence alone. The Advantage provides a foundational construct for conducting business in a new way - one that maximizes human potential and aligns the organization around a common set of principles.
This summary is aimed at those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the time to listen to the whole thing. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer.
