Finally a book from Ken Blanchard that takes more than one minute to put into place. Unfortunately it is still narrative and it would be great to read about a real company that really existed that made these things happen.
I brought the book because I was working on our strategies for the year ahead and noticed it talked about sharing information (something we do OK at) and creating boundaries (something we are currently working on). I hoped it would be something I could read with my team but as a story it is just to slow moving.
It lacks what John Allen calls "intellectual curiosity"
Did I enjoy it, not overly. Did I learn something? I always do.
Below is a summary of the book from a diagram call "The Empowerment Game Plan"
