Valuable for strategists & project?leaders
Mark Morgan, Raymond E. Levitt and William Malek get to the heart of getting things accomplished. They observe the ruins of strategies on the business scene that looked good on paper but failed the test of execution. The authors clearly identify three “strategy-making imperatives” and three “project leadership imperatives” and explain how to implement them.
GetAbstract believes that this book, which is generally well written and pointed, with minimal jargon, will be valuable to any strategist or project leader.
