Speed Lead: Faster, Simpler Ways to Manage People, Projects and Teams in Complex Companies
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Talented people in today's organizations waste an estimated 40% of their time on unnecessary cooperation, communication and control. Old-fashioned skills are too expensive and too slow to use in complex companies. Speed Lead distills the experience of more than 35,000 people in over 200 leading companies. The resulting radical view has enabled organizations to unravel the spaghetti of complexity, reduce project cycle times, and curb the costs of unnecessary travel.
