Editorial Reviews

Review

“Tough love is the signature of a Jason Jennings book and The High-Speed Company does not flinch in painting a nasty, brutish, and short future for businesses that fail to step up. But the empathetic Jennings doesn’t stop there. He shows how to move forward. His conversations with thousands of CEOs worldwide come through in memorable stories of struggle and learning—and from those, battle-tested strategies and tips for success.”

Rich Karlgaard, publisher, Forbes Magazine and Media, and New York Times bestselling author of The Soft Edge


“Jason Jennings presents a thorough look at what makes a high-speed company. This is a must read for anyone starting a company or running one.”

Dan DiMicco, chairman emeritus and former CEO (2000-2013) of Nucor, North America’s largest steel company, which has paid 166 consecutive quarterly dividends


“When a book claims to show you how to get your company to move fast and right, it had better be written by the sure voice of experience, wisdom, and empathy. Jason Jennings flat-out delivers in The High-Speed Company. He promises that you can open this book anywhere and find insight, inspiration, or instruction. It’s true—and you should devour every page.”

Stan Slap, New York Times bestselling author of Bury My Heart at Conference Room B and Under the Hood


“Hits all points necessary for surefire success, including purpose, values, people, communication, and growth. Building speed into your organization is hard work but it pays off—so get after it and then celebrate!”
Michael Long, chairman, president, and CEO, Arrow Electronics, a $21.4 billion global provider of electronic components and solutions


“Jason has nailed the high-speed path to a high-speed company. Read this book or be left in the dust by your competition.”

Guy Kawasaki, chief evangelist of Canva and author of The Art of Social Media


“A fascinating book on the imperatives of driving urgency and growth. This is a must read for managers who are seeking to steer their companies along the fastest lanes of today’s corporate autobahns. It is lucidly written, easy to read, and packed with memorable stories from high-speed companies. Most important, the authors provide a simple, meaningful, and practical guidebook for revving up speed in so many key areas and winning every important race for your team.”

Harish Bhat, member, Group Executive Council, Tata Sons Ltd., and author of Tata Log. The Tata Group operates in 150 countries, with revenues of $96.8 billion.
