Why is Everyone Working on the Wrong Things?
Metrics are important in an organization, but how do you create metrics that energize your employees to work on the right things? How is managing a front-line process different than managing other managers? How do you create a strategic plan that is more than a list of things we wish would happen?
Author and consultant Steven Ouellette will answer these questions by showing you how to build a set of integrated metrics that supports day-to-day management as well as a strategic plan. He does this through a straightforward process that has been tested in hundreds of organizations, while showing how it works by building a business step-by-step with the reader.
Interspersed with stories from Galileo's life that have relevance today, Galileo's Telescope is a must-read for anyone wanting to know how to build, manage, or lead an organization.
Business Management and Other Topics
You’ve seen the situation – a manager makes the same mistakes over and over, an executive reads a book or article and decides to implement it at their organization. Why do they fail when they try to use their own or someone else’s experience? It’s because experience alone teaches nothing.
Even a small business is pretty complicated. I have heard some people say that business is so complicated that no one can really understand or control one. While the former might be true, you don’t need to understand everything about a business to manage it. And it can be understood by watching flocks of birds.
Most businesses know the importance of using metrics to manage, but a lot of them struggle with creating metrics that actually fulfill their purpose. How do they go wrong, and how is hiring an external consultant to tell you the “right” metrics like getting an organ transplant that fails?
