By Michael Gremley on February 4, 2008
Format: Paperback
For years I have used this framework for evaluating critical business decisions. It has been an invaluable compass when allocating resources in human capital, intellectual capital, and investment capital, particularly when those resources can be so scarce. We have a saying that, `Vision without execution is hallucination.' I would follow that with `Visions supported by Return Driven Strategy have the best chances for success.'

Since I have been exposed to the thinking of the Return Driven Strategy, I am actively using this approach as planning and analysis tool for business and personal matters. This structured, holistic and easy to grasp approach has offered me important insights on many of my case assignments at one of the top consultancies in the world. The book DRIVEN offers an amazing insight to this thinking. It's a must read for anyone interested in strategy and value creation. In addition, the included case studies give a great indication of the importance of following the Return Driven Strategy.

This approach gives senior managers in a firm the tools necessary to recognize the key decisions in their pursuit of excellence, as well as clarifiying which issues are not key to achieving results. This book is a "must" for every executive that makes strategic decisions and translates those to execution!

I have been a strategic management consultant for twenty years, and this book taught me more about my own thoughts on strategy for my clients and myself. Highly recommend. Isn't too deep or confusing. Not game theory. Just real world strategy.

DRIVEN compiles each of the key concepts toward achieving balanced and boundless success professionally and personally. The Return Driven Strategy Pyramid offers a roadmap to success. Using the pyramid to clarify thought and prepare for action ensures superior returns.

With the good fortune to participate in seminars hosted by Frigo and Litman, I can personally attest to the power of this book. The ideas and nuances of Return Driven Strategy are perfectly presented in this edition.

From both quantitative and qualitative perspectives, do not miss this opportunity to grow professionally and personally with DRIVEN.
