I love books and I love re-reading them after years. I recently read one of my favourite books, Execution, again. I was amazed that even after 20 years of its publication it is still fresh and relevant.
Execution by Ram Charan and Larry Bossidy. The book came out in 2002 and contained many decades of the wisdom of the authors. I am yet to come across a more compelling argument for better execution.
The book just does not propose better execution, it explores it.
I posted a brief 3 minute summary
on LinkedIn last week and it got a lot of love. Thanks. If you haven’t you can check it here.
The book and its authors do not depend on fancy charts and diagrams to make their point but lean on the power of a sound argument and fluid writing style. When your message is simple and clear you do not need charts and diagrams to explain it.
A longer format commentary and summary is on YouTube
. The commentary by no means is a patch on this wonderful book. If you have anything to do with better management, this is the book I strongly urge you to read.
