About the Summary

If there is one thing that is certain in business, it’s uncertainty. Still, there are great organizations that perform consistently and with excellence, regardless of the conditions. This practical book is about getting predictable results in good times and bad by applying four key principles: excellent execution; high trust levels with all stakeholders; achieving more with less; and transforming fear into engagement.

In This Summary, You Will Learn:

  • Winning companies have “simple goals repeatedly revisited, together with clear targets and strong follow-through, including the measurement of results.”
  • Winning companies are capable of quick action “with the agility to respond ahead of, or at least stay even with, rapid changes in the new economic environment.”
  • Winning companies focus totally on value –– they are not just cutting back, they are simplifying, reducing complexities that customers and employees don’t value.
