Beschreibung

Reinvent best practices that have become bad habits 

Without meaning to, and often with the best of intentions, most organizations continually waste precious time and money on processes and activities that don't create value and no longer make sense in today's business environment. Until now, the relatively slow speed of marketplace evolution has allowed wasteful habits to continue without consequence. This reality is ending.

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.

Klappentext

Praise for Detonate

"Detonate will open your eyes to see the processes, policies, and organizational practices that have outlived their usefulness to customers, employees, and investors. Steve and Geoff give us new ways of operating logically that better align with the fast changing requirements of our future 'everything is digital' world."
LOWELL MCADAM, Chairman and CEO, Verizon Communications

"Tuff and Goldbach build a compelling case for why conventional wisdom and 'best practices' are the surest way to get average results. If you truly aspire for outstanding leadership results, the words you never want to hear are 'that's the way we've always done it.' The authors of this book explain how to 'blow up' practices that companies adopt to reduce risk and, in doing so, renew your business and your organization. A must-read for any business leader!"
CHIP BERGH, President and CEO, Levi Strauss & Co.

"Detonate is rooted in the real world of human behavior, unlike so many of the practices that organizations adopt out of risk avoidance and maintain out of shear bureaucratic entropy. Tired of text-book thinking? This book challenges conventional wisdom and provides paradigm-shifting solutions."
TONY CIEPIEL, Chief Operating Officer, Vita-Mix Corporation

"In a fast changing, disruptive world, Detonate provides great insight to how you need to transform the behavior of your organization to innovate and stay competitive. Most organizations are trapped in the pursuit of best practices and risk avoidance. This is a book for leaders."
MARK COSTA, Chairman and CEO, Eastman Chemical Company

"The authors have been helping organizations 'blow up' some of their best practices for a long time. They know what they're talking about because they've seen it. They have been able to boil down successfully what they know into a readable and useful volume."
OFRA STRAUSS, Chairperson of the Board, Strauss Group

Zusammenfassung

Reinvent best practices that have become bad habits

Without meaning to, and often with the best of intentions, most organizations continually waste precious time and money on processes and activities that don't create value and no longer make sense in today's business environment. Until now, the relatively slow speed of marketplace evolution has allowed wasteful habits to continue without consequence. This reality is ending.

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.
