Book Abstract
What do leaders need to do to optimize effectiveness in their organization? This 'How To' book provides leaders with proven, immediately usable frameworks and processes that leaders can use to deliver results. The authors make extensive use of their own hands-on experience and case studies to engage readers and provide a roadmap for success.

Book Summary
Today's global and complex markets have narrow market windows, fast-paced cycle times, and low tolerance for mistakes. Companies have discovered that iterative methods can address these needs. But how do leaders ensure they are delivering the right results? In this dynamic environment, leaders ask: "How do I keep my company from spiraling into chaos?" "How do we make better business decisions?" and "Are we doing the smart stuff and not doing the stupid stuff?"

In this book, the authors offer a set of tools leaders can use to address their company's immediate needs for leading change: strategy, deciding what the right thing is to do and when, and how to manage risk and deliver complex and uncertain projects. Combining collaboration with these tools, leaders create organizations that embrace change. With the direction defined and communicated, leaders stand back and guide the organization to deliver external and internal results.
