  1. Al

    Execution The discipline of Getting Things Done Larry Bossidy and Ram CharanCentral Truths 1 Execution is a systematic process of rigorously discussing hows and whats, questioning, tenaciously following through, and ensuring accountability.2 No company can deliver on its commitments or adapt well to change unless all leaders practice the discipline of execution at all levels.3 You need robust dialogue to surface the realities of the business.4 How people talk to each other absolutely determines [...]

    What a completely over rated book I suspect this made the top 20 best ever booklist that led me to it on the basis that the title sounds good, like something a knowledgeable business person should advocate Bossidy has earned the right to write on this topic, but the story lacks any sense of instructive meat It s really suited to a motivational speech or a Tom Peters interview Reading 250 pages was painful Some business books are thoughtful others make me really dislike business culture in gener [...]

    A bit lengthy written with two main messages 1 As a CEO or a leader at the top level management, it is wrong to only focus on the planning or big pictures The modern style of managing is to also make sure how to get the things done Do not blame the staffs if execution goes wrong.2 To do point 1 above, make sure you hire good people that are entitled to get things done To do so, you have to use all channels of reference checking, contact people that know your candidates closely.Very inspiring, bu [...]

    A former manager of mine once told me to read this book That was back in 2007 It took me until now to read it, but now I understand why he had such high praise for the book Execution in it s simplest sense is to get things done Period But it s complex than those 3 words might suggest It s about getting the right people in place, building a strategy around the resources available, and finally implementing the strategy, linking the strategy with people.As with many other books on management scien [...]

    It s not you, it s me Well that s what I think at least So many business books read like a rehash of a boring seminar and this is no exception Every page could be a power point Every line could be a bullet point Everything is crafted for presentation with very little background, substance or reference Anecdote is not evidence, yet anecdote is ever present You know, it reminds me of sitting through talks and speeches in church when I was a kid All Mormon talks are exactly like this a few bullet [...]

  6. Robert Chapman

    I gave this 3 stars not because it was a bad book, but rather because I think other books better convey a similar but concise message Those books would be The Oz Principle and The 4 Disciplines of Execution Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals.The idea that many people intellectualize, philosophize and cannot actually implement or execute is so very true, I have seen it over and over again in my career.Leaders show up and get into the weeds, it builds dignity in subordinates Forty percent of a [...]

    A rambling mess that seemed to have never crossed an editor s desk, this book read as though it was literally spoken into a tape recorder, transcribed and then published As to its subject matter I cannot think of one bromide the authors managed to leave out, particularly of the tautological sort You hire good people by.hiring good people, you build good products by good products Wow I finally tossed this sucker aside after about the 84,000th mention of Jack Welch, in such slobbering terms they d [...]

  8. Paul Bard

    It s not worth reading, in my opinion, because it s full of jargon and puffery Who knows if the wall of corporate verbiage has any meaning or not Apparently many are convinced it does I am not.As to the puffery, the book makes out plain prudence to be some great new discovery This is not even marketing, but simply spin, as far as I can see Because the authors are corporate leaders, this book is treated better than it deserves It deserves to be treated as an marketing addition to the authors resu [...]

    I might have missed the point of this book, but what I came away with was This is a book based in a different time and while execution is as fundamental to business success the incarnation in this book and its implementation is obsolete It s hard to take it too seriously when statements that are key to the message of the book are based upon bad data Most of what s usable in this book is just re branded common sense While they are good reminders they do not inspire nor impress Stop trying to dazz [...]

    This book is valuable to individuals and is even value to senior leadership in organizations I enjoyed considering the key difference between what behaviors successful companies exude Also, I strongly agree that a culture of execution normally separates industry leaders from other companies Here is my personal review of this book Execution is a systematic process of rigorously discussing hows and whats, questioning, tenaciously following through, and ensuring accountability It includes making a [...]

  11. Tim Andersen

    There were some good things to think about as far as open and honest feedback from reviews and assessment There were also some good points on when to take coaching opportunities Most of the book was about setting expectations and following through by holding people accountable There is a lot of emphasis on scrutinizing the business plans of underlings and driving out the specific actions to see if they have actually thought about it or just made up numbers to meet their performance objectives Th [...]

  12. Mark Hanson

    A few interesting and helpful suggestions, but for the most part it was a lot of verbiage without much actionable content Geared for much larger organizations with a larger hierarchical structure of authority where one can push off the actual process of doing to many direct reports.

  13. Maureen Ennis

    I was lucky enough to work at AlliedSignal and participate as Larry Bossidy ran the Execution machine he describes in this book I have found it invaluable in transforming organizations of all sizes.

  14. Zaher Alhaj

    I think the book is overrated Although it includes some useful tips, however it lacks the deep thoughts that one can expect form such an over hyped book.

    2014 Excelent book I learned a lot of things from Bossidy and Charan, specially that execution is not something you delegate, it is the direct responsibility of the leader I also learned that business plans have to be so detailed, they become daily guides.The only thing I didn t like is that they wrote the book from the perspective of huge company, in the billions of dollars of sales category I understan that is the primary area of expertise of the author, but I would like to read a book this go [...]

    This is one of the better leadership management books that I have come across Like most books of the genre, it stresses goals and visions as essential to moving forward, but this book takes it in a different direction at some point, you need to stop dreaming and start doing something.Execution stresses a hands on approach to leadership It s not enough to simply sit back and be the idea guy hoping that someone else is taking care of the work The book is generally written for the CEO level, but t [...]

  18. James Pritchert

    This is a vintage read from the early 2000s It is directed towards CEOs and those who want to be CEOs All that aside, I enjoyed it and I have retrieved some useful nuggets of information that I am able to apply in my current position which is far from the CEO suite It is a good thing to view the world of work from the top level instead of the trenches It tends to help put things into perspective for us working guys.

  19. Nora

    Started off very strong and somehow became less impressive towards the end For some reason, it felt less precise, even though it was describing the operations and strategy processes Nonetheless, I wholeheartedly support its core premise that you have be specific about how to get things done.

  20. Sushant Sharma

    Tends to get repetitive and loses its luster as it moves ahead It does provide good use cases and a certain direction but too many times just gives mixed signals and foggy discussions Good one time read and should be used as a milestone to move to sterner literature on execution frameworks.

  21. S James Bysouth

    This is a must read for anyone working in a corporate office, small business, or hot dog stand In the 5 or 6 years since reading, time and time again I have thought about the things I learned here.

  22. Donovan Richards

    The Academy and the CompanyHaving experienced this phenomenon over the last year or so, I can safely attest to its accuracy The shift between academic life and business life is stark, challenging, and effulgent.The scholarly life requires deep rumination, careful consideration, and an ability to distill complexity into simplicity so that others might learn In terms of delivery, the academic certainly has deadlines, but responsibility falls on one s self There are no clear and present responsibil [...]

    All along I ve taken pride that I m an ideas guy I am not an implementer This book made it abundantly clear that if there were an extra Beautitude in the bible it would be the implementers shall inherit the Earth It s not enough to be think strategically and fashion an exception strategic plan A plan is only as good as it execution So often leaders are changed out under the guise of having a poor strategy When in actuality it was poor execution that doomed them to failure The book made the case [...]

    Execution The Discipline of Getting Things Done by Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan was recommended to by someone I met on a bus As we conversed, she suggested I would find reading this book exciting and learn one or two things about getting things done Here are my thoughts about the book Execution is a business book outlining three processes a leader should focus on to successfully execute a business strategy the people process, the strategy process and the operations process According to Larry and [...]

    If I recall correctly, this book became necessary reading while working as Director Marketing, Internet at Molson Coors Canada very early in my career there Current CEO Dan O Neill became a big believer in the advantages and performance benefits that could arise if we could just inch by inch become much better at EXECUTION of not only the smallest local tactical promotions but ALL efforts everyday Great ideas and the perfect promotional campaign only fails or certainly falls way short if poorly [...]
