Publisher's Summary

Detonate explains how organizations built up bad habits, identifies which ones masquerade as "best practices", and suggests alternatives that can contribute to winning in the marketplace. With a focus on optimism and empowerment, it focuses on an approach and mindset which are critical to successfully compete in an era characterized by profound technological advances and uncertainty. 

  • Core themes challenge how you think about and approach problems 
  • Case studies illustrate the challenges you face and how to overcome them 
  • Recommendations are pragmatic and steer clear of suggesting a brand-new, complicated wiring diagram 
  • Actionable advice provides the first steps down an evolutionary path 

If you want to compete differently in today's marketplace and to challenge the things your company does which you have a nagging feeling are actually just a waste of time - and maybe value-destroying - Detonate gives you what you need to ignite change.

good ideas, but ..

great ideas on how to take a close look at your SOP. I found it disrespectful to the value of tradition. there are real reason some things are done, they should be reevaluated regularly but you don't just say blow them up. leadership is about getting others to do what you ask, poking them with a stick is not how you do that.
