Then we read Mastering the Rockefeller Habits. And we found we could actually implement the plans that we learned how to develop from the methods and techniques defined in the book. We now have plans that work. And our company has matured tremendously as an organization from following the book. I strongly recommend that any company, from young start-up to those more mature, read and implement the strategies in this book. It will change your world.
If you have a burning desire to grow your business, and become successful but like me, you don't know where to start, then you MUST READ Verne's book. If you are content with slow growth, or if you think you have already heard everything you need to know, then don't waste your time.
In the 6 years that I have been following the methods described in this book I have seen my business grow over 25,000%. From the outside that must sound too good to be true. However, if you want to see that kind of growth and you are willing to do the work required but you just don't know where to start, then pick up Verne's book and start practicing these habits.
Pay special attention to the planning pyramid; it's helped me share the big vision and get the organization into alignment. By putting stakes in the ground, it also quickly helps to identify any holes there may be in the overall strategy.
All in all, this is a must read.
1. "Does the organization have objective Top 5 priorities for the year and the quarter and a clear Top 1 priority along with an appropriate theme?"
2. "Does the organization have sufficient data on a daily and weekly basis to provide insight into how the organization is running and what the market is demanding?"
3. "Doers the organization have an effective rhythm of daily, weekly, quarterly, and annual meetings to maintain alignment and drive accountability?"
These three questions suggest issues that leaders in any organization (regardless of size or nature) should regularly address with sufficient rigor and candor. Leaders in the ten exemplar organizations do so to ensure that (a) everything they do and are planning to do is of great importance to their current and prospective customers, and (b) everything they do or are planning to do will differentiate their organization from its competitors.
In my opinion, this is one of the most practical business books written in recent years, offering material based on a wealth of real-world situations and filled with insights and suggestions that almost any leader can put to immediate use.Read more ›
