Execution Plain and Simple
Twelve Steps to Achieving Any Goal on Time and on Budget
Create concrete goals, design practical strategies and heighten company performance with a basic 12-step execution plan.
Has your corporation or department misplaced its vision, purpose or spirit? Relax. Author Robert A. Neiman provides an effective path out of the lost-and-found department. Neiman’s 12-step program offers practical solutions and political advice for even hardcore bureaucracy addicts. The text features true-to-life scenarios, worksheets and instructions for a full menu of corporate activities, ranging from dreaded employee reviews to awards ceremonies. The author’s portrait of corporate life is like an excellent still-life painting, with realistic details, highlights and shadows. The text is enhanced with actual snapshots from testy workplace situations. These insertions, however, would work better with a bit of pruning and, although the vignettes are helpful, it is tempting to skim these little corporate dramas. But don’t skip the charts and worksheets. These features are excellent tools. What’s more, the author’s insistence on honesty, integrity and personal responsibility is a business wakeup call. getAbstract recommends this book to every ambitious worker, manager or executive on the corporate ladder.
