I started implementing the lessons from this book as I was learning them and my team has responded really well. They are still trying to wrap their heads around the concept of VSO's but they are beginning to see the light. I think that we are making better decisions and are making large strides in our effectiveness as a team.
Ultimately what I would say is that most of the concepts in this book are not earth-shattering. You have probably come across many of these ideas in training or other books. But what is profound, at least in my opinion, is the practical way the information is presented and the focus on why we should or shouldn't do something.
As much as we'd all like, work never executes perfectly to plan. Good managers ensure the team is focused on the right goals. Great managers make sure they have the alignment and communications processes to make sure gaps is execution are identified and teams adjust (the plans, the resources, etc) quickly with a minimum of finger pointing and defensiveness.
Ed Muzio lays out a straight-forward guide to building a team and the needed process to execute and adjust in both simple and complex/linked organization. How to keep the signals clear to individuals, managers, and leaders can focus on the right adjustments to get back on track or change the plan to meet the new reality.
Ed supplements the exercises and examples in the book with available online videos to make the lessons clear. His decades of real-world application come through in the examples he provides to guide application, including how to keep meetings productively focused on information flow and decisions to make decisions and trade-offs vs the all-too-common collusion to avoid hard conversations based on the real data, and how to do it in a way that brings teams together to focus on the most critical work for the business, not just the individual silos and departments.
