Reviews

Globalization, technology and scale can lead to growth and success, but they also bring dysfunctional baggage. Kevan shows how to get off the organizational 'hamster wheel' and focus on what is important. -- Geoff Armstrong, Director General, CIPD Speed is the key word for companies in the Asia Pacific Rim. Kevan's remarkable...book comes from his long practical experience. New tools and techniques from this book can be applied in many different countries without any cultural difference. -- Professor Jae Ho Park. Yeungnam University, South Korea A much needed new look at managing and leading in complex modern organisations. Practical tools you can implement to speed up your company. -- Bob Morton, Head of People Development Competence Centre, Europe-MEA, Ciba Specialty Chemicals We want our companies to be faster, simpler and easier to run - this refreshing blend of challenging ideas and practical tools shows us how. -- Karl Kahofer, Group President Europe and Asia Pacific, Rubbermaid/IRWIN An eminently practical book, good at giving pragmatic, realistic tips that can help the reader to reframe and reflect on one's practice, and change behaviour without the guilt from being 'stuck' in an outdated managerial mindset. This is a well-organised and enthusiastic synthesis of good managerial practice. * People Management * Intensely practical. Hall's book is a highly stimulating guide to creating a more efficient business. Any global firm would benefit form the chapter on managing across time zones by organising continuous 24-hour working. -- Carol Kennedy * Director * The book is accessible, easy to read and practically written...I found the book gave me cause to examine how I manage, and I was able to take away some practical ideas that I will apply in my own working environment. * Personnel Today *
