Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Brown, a management consultant, presents a smart and readable guide for executives seeking to improve the effectiveness of their corporate strategies. Even though one-third of all business strategies fail, executives tend to stick with the plan, maintaining that a bad plan is safer than no plan at all. Brown shows how to break free from this mentality and makes her message stick with energetic prose and cheeky humor. She questions prevalent corporate beliefs and shows how following these misguided approaches can ruin an organization. She highlights change as the key factor; it's the "anti-gravity" that will propel a company forward. Citing such successful examples as Nu Skin and Southwest Airlines, Brown illustrates key points on what works and what doesn't, and concludes each chapter with a helpful summary. A new voice in a very crowded field, Brown provides an original perspective on corporate growth. (Sept.)
