    Compelling and Broadly Applicable

    This book may be written from the perspective of a fighter pilot, but its phenomenally powerful principles are applicable to businesses, non-profit organizations, schools, churches, etc. In fact, it's holistic approach and step-by-step processes can be applied in any enivronment where people work together.

    This is a must read!

    This is the official Afterburner handbook.

    If you haven¿t had the opportunity to experience an Afterburner seminar yet, this book links you into their entire process top-down, from strategy to the flawless execution model to the people who carry out the mission. As head of Training for my organization, I was particularly interested in the section Murph dedicated to training. In the business world we don¿t place enough emphasis on the importance of training our people ¿ in the military they never place someone in an environment they are not prepared to be in. Training seems to always get sacrificed because we¿re too busy carrying out tasks to get pulled away. Murph speaks on training to achieve a (specific) Desired Learning Objective, seeing how its done and then doing it ¿ learning from experience. In the corporate world there is much we can learn from military processes. Flawless Execution is a process that can be applied to every business objective ¿ its asks the questions: Did we plan right? Communicate to our people clearly? Give our people the tools they need to execute their job? And, did we capture lessons learned so we can sharpen the saw next time? It¿s a powerful tool we¿re applying in my organization with much success. I just hope our competitors don¿t read this book!
