Every day, seemingly intelligent and successful companies make headline news for poor decisions that can cause their business to stumble and make many of us scratch our heads in wonder. Why would such a successful business make "that" strategic decision? Neil Smith, with more than 20 years of experience leading large-scale performance improvements, reveals the hidden barriers that limit excellent companies from reaching their potential, and cause even the smartest managers and leaders to falter. During his experience transforming some of the top global businesses, Smith has identified 8 barriers that exist in every organization and prevent them from implementing literally thousands of ideas to improve the way they work: Avoiding Controversy Poor Use of Time Reluctance to Change Organizational Silos Management Blockers Incorrect Information and Bad Assumptions Size Matters Existing Processes Rich with anecdotes and case studies, Smith identifies the ways in each of these barriers interrupt your own business. He then outlines a fast and proven process in which 12 principles of business transformation can break down the processes that hold companies back. What Smith offers his readers is the same thing he offers every day to the major companies he works with, A PROMISE that by following his insights, the company will be able to increase communication, simplicity, and profit tolevels never before attainable. Throughout the book, Dr. Richard Levak has contributed personality and organizational insights that shed light on why an individual or an organization behaves in contrary ways giving you a better sense of why these internal walls exist and how to be aware of your actions in your day to day life.… (mer)

(Can't believe I neglected to post review for so long)

Nothing fancy or earthshaking... I get others comments about "sales pitch-y" as well. If you are a business addict (which I am sometimes), it may appeal. Beyond that, I cannot recommend. ( )

The ideas presented by Neil Smith in this book are very relevant to higher management in medium to large companies looking to fix operations and efficiency. With lots of experience and case studies to draw on, Smith can illustrate his "barriers" and roughly outline fixes in a variety of environments. The book had plenty to offer and a lot can be taken from Smith's expertise but as other reviewers pointed out, the book reads more like a advertisement for consulting services than a management tutorial. Solutions are hinted at but never truly presented and each chapters has a very polished shine to it which reads more like ad copy than professional development text. Devoted readers/managers could pull some ideas from the book but implementing them without further employing Smith might prove difficult. ( )

I read this one shortly after receiving it from Early Reviewers, and just noticed that the review I wrote apparently never got saved. Ah well. I found it spot-on in identifying the various problems businesses face, particularly the problems of companies not soliciting improvement ideas from all employees, and resistance to change in general. The arguments were convincing, but I found myself doubting that companies would actually be able to put the reforms into place. ( )

I couldn't finish it. It seemed like a sales pitch, and I just couldn't get interested. ( )

I received a copy of this as part of librarything Early Reviewer program.

Self help book for business. Good read but nothing new or innovative. ( )
