Books I've Enjoyed
B State by Mark Samuel
Problem this book deals with: How o you execute a turnaround if a company is going downhill?
You must act fast.
Both business model and culture must shift at once.
Don't fix what isn't working, eliminate it.
It's not a transition, it's a change of reality.
Process it proposes:
Ask yourself what could the transformed company look like in one year assuming the current constraints don't exist. This is the B-State.
Execution is about changing habits.
Focus on Logic and Alignment.
Ask yourself who is involved in the current process, but don't include emotion.
Practice makes perfect. Not a single interaction. Constant improvement will be a requirement.
The new reality where the old problems, habits, and politics don't exist anymore.
