Detonate: Why - And How - Corporations Must Blow Up Best Practices (and Bring a Beginner's Mind) to Survive (Hardcover)
Reinvent best practices that have become bad habits
Without meaning to, and often with the best of intentions, most organizations continually waste precious time and money on processes and activities that don't create value and no longer make sense in today's business environment. Until now, the relatively slow speed of marketplace evolution has allowed wasteful habits to continue without consequence. This reality is ending.
Detonate explains how organizations built up bad habits, identifies which ones masquerade as "best practices," and suggests alternatives that can contribute to winning in the marketplace. With a focus on optimism and empowerment, it focuses on an approach and mindset which are critical to successfully compete in an era characterized by profound technological advances and uncertainty.
- Core themes challenge how you think about and approach problems
- Case studies illustrate the challenges you face and how to overcome them
- Recommendations are pragmatic and steer clear of suggesting a brand-new, complicated wiring diagram
- Actionable advice provides the first steps down an evolutionary path
If you want to compete differently in today's marketplace and to challenge the things your company does which you have a nagging feeling are actually just a waste of time - and maybe value-destroying - Detonate gives you what you need to ignite change.
