Written from the point of view of someone achieving business success in today's turbulent economy, Forget Strategy. Get Results offers you a fresh way of thinking about successfully managing any sort of business, under any conditions.
Controversial, thought-provoking, and entertaining, it delivers TelecityGroup founder and CEO Michael Tobin's OBE unconventional approach to management and shares the lessons he's learned on his path to building one of the world's largest data center provider companies.
Radical, creative, often extreme, the techniques it describes are the same ones Michael uses every day at TelecityGroup, and with which he has achieved nothing short of awe - inspiring results. Inspiration and practical tips for managers or business leaders who are stuck in a rut and in search of new ways to motivate their teams, make bolder decisions and handle change with more agility.
Michael allows managers at all levels to rethink and reassess the way they plan, manage, and deliver vision in their organizations. He identifies 11 fundamental rules that any manager or leader can adopt at any level in any organization.
I love the author's strategies to make a point that won't be easily forgotten. Brilliant.
What disappointed you about Forget Strategy. Get Results?
Was looking forward to a new view on getting things done... but this book repeats the same idea over and over (put your team in an uncomfortable situation, and they will learn!) and highlights living day to day as a means for success.
A good book about bold and different approach to management that may not work for everybody. The book has many interesting and inspiring stories. It was a good read/listen.
