It’s hard to read a book when you are constantly stopping to take notes. The introduction and first chapter alone provoked my thinking about the ambitions of my own company and the strategies needed for success. I love this book. Each chapter is a true story about an organization and the practices and differentiators that led to its success. The organizations are highly diverse and while each is unique – most of us don’t instruct our customers to build and use pit latrines – there are commonalities that can be practised by all of us. Read this book. You will be inspired and compelled to take action.- Susan Scott Founder of Fierce Inc and author of Fierce Conversations
The stories of a dozen great organizations from around the world – and what we can learn from their decency and vision, as well as their success. Recommended reading for any business leader.- Hamish McRae Chief Economics Commentator, The Independent
Every now and again a new book comes along which really does add something new to our understanding of high-performance organizations. This is one of those books. A highly readable book offering real insight into how organizations become leaders in their respective fields.- Jeff Grout business consultant, coach, speaker and author
