Overview

We live and work in a time of rapid change. Innovativetechnologies—from the latest social media platforms tohigh-tech automated warehouses—reinvent the way we do businessevery day. At the same time, globalization and new nonlinear careerpaths continually transform our workforce, with teams constantlydiversifying. Managers and organizations know they must adapt, butsimple awareness of these sweeping changes is not enough. How canyou go beyond merely understanding this new world to see unique newopportunities and, more importantly, beat the competition totomorrow's greatest ideas?

The answer lies in being "plugged in"—not just to newtechnology, but also to processes and people, and, most crucially,to the way these strategic elements fit together. Today'shypercompetitive economy demands seamless integration between theparticular skills and knowledge of a team, the range of anybusiness's technological tools, and the structure of theorganization. After years of studying respected, successfulcompanies, Professor Terri L. Griffith reveals how top performers"plug in" to achieve impressive results.

The cornerstone of Griffith's work is an easy-to-understandframework for plugging in, explained through three corepractices:

  • Stop-Look-Listen: What do your data say? What do you alreadyknow that will help you with this project?
  • Mixing: How do you balance your available resources?
  • Sharing: How can you achieve better results by integrating yourchoices with other team members?

To show how the most plugged-in organizations developsophisticated, industry-leading strategies from these basicpractices, Griffith goes behind the scenes for interviews and casestudies at leading companies such as Zappos, Intuit, Microsoft,Nucor, Socialtext, and many more.

With Griffith's deep understanding of today's business climateand her practical model for maximizing the potential of anyorganization's resources, The Plugged-In Manager is an essentialtool for success in our fast-paced, interconnected world.
