Quint Studer provides "straight forward" tools and tactics to help leaders better understand the external environment and how to lead to survive it. A few of my key takeaways from the book include:
"Mandatory is okay." When evidence shows a certain way of doing things is the most effective way, that way needs to become mnadatory. (p.4)
"Set high goals." A low goal enables a lack of urgency. (p.5)
"Execute quickly." It's not about the plan. It's about the ability to execute the plan. (p.8)
"Best Practices are Over-Discussed and Underused." He gives eight tactical steps to improve the spread of best practices. (p.62-65)
This book is a perfect read for senior leaders and middle managers to increase their leadership skill set.

Alignment, action and accountability. Quint Studer, founder and CEO of the Studer Group lists three things that an organization must have to succeed in the increasingly competitive medical environment. First they must align their entire organization to a set of goals. If part of the organization is not aligned they will work against the larger goal. Second, the organization must take specific actions to get where they need to go. Studer calls these 'prescriptive to-do's.' Just knowing what to do isn't enough, you must go and do the work. Many organizations suffer from what Studer calls paralysis of analysis. And finally the organization must put into place a system of accountability to make certain everyone gets on board. Studer's many years of consulting with the very best medical organizations in the country shows in this comprehensive and innovative book. No matter where you fit in the field you will learn something new from this book, and furthermore something you can put into action immediately to improve your organization. This is not a book you will read and put aside. It becomes a workbook that you will refer to on a regular basis to make you a better professional.Was this review helpful?
