Kiss Theory Good Bye: Die fünf lähmenden Gewohnheiten von Unternehmen

0977684806.01. SCMZZZZZZZ V44661370Gestern habe ich das Lesen abgeschlossen Seestern und die Spinne: Die unaufhaltsame Kraft führerloser Organisationen. If I were to rank it, it may be a 3 or 4 out of 10. It's a quick read and the message behind it is both timely and incredibly important. In all honesty, though, it could have been published as a white paper and had the same impact. That's no offense to the authors… it's just that the book is one of discovery and affirmation. It's not a book of action.

Bob Prosen's book, Küsstheorie Auf Wiedersehen is quite the opposite. As soon as I picked this book up, I felt as though I stepped off an escalator and onto a rocket ship. I'm only through the introduction and there's already valuable information. Here's a teaser – Die fünf lähmenden Gewohnheiten, die Unternehmen und Organisationen nirgendwo schnell hinbringen:

  1. Unsinn klarer Richtungen
  2. Mangel an Verantwortlichkeit
  3. Rationalisierung minderwertiger Leistung
  4. Planen statt Handeln
  5. Abneigung gegen Risiko und Veränderung

Ähm ... autsch! Bob fasste nur meine wachsende Frustration über meinen Job zusammen. Ich arbeite für einen fantastischen, erfolgreichen Arbeitgeber wächst wie verrückt. The more employees and promotions, the slower we seem to get, though. Bob doesn't know a thing about our company but he absolutely nailed it! These warten Genau die Dinge, die uns verlangsamen, müssen wir sofort ändern.

I passed on a couple copies of this book to some folks in the organization. I hope they have made it through the introduction as well! I can't wait to dig into the rest of this book. The book doesn't focus on these crippling habits, it focuses on what's needed to change the organization and get it moving in the right direction!

I'm sure I'll be sharing much more from this book with you in the next few weeks. Pick up a copy of Kiss Theory Good Bye von Bob Prosen damit wir es gemeinsam diskutieren können.

    Mist. Meine lokale Bibliothek hat es nicht.

    Ich bin zu 100% mit Ihnen in den Top 5. Ich mache gerade bei meinem Start ein "Lassen Sie uns unser letztes Post-Mortem ignorieren und die gleichen Probleme wiederholen" durch. Pfui.

      Interesting, engtech. We’re so afraid of our last mistakes that we’re paralyzed in planning mode. Weeks from release and we’re still arguing features and functionality. It’s not healthy at all. At one company, one of the best bosses I ever had called it “Analysis Paralysis”.

      Sometimes you just have to move forward. To your point, though, you can’t simply move without adjusting!

      Bücher warten my creative outlet and they really tap into my imagination. I’ve always been an avid reader – mostly because I’ve always been able to apply what I’ve learned to what I do.

      Of course, creativity is probably not a primary requirement for the jobs that I do (even though it is core to it). You, of course, have been both educated and have trained yourself in creativity – so I guess opening a book may not be the best resource for you. That’s really an interesting perspective, Bitt! Do you have other creative outlets?

      I do try to make 1 of 5 books to be fictional so that I’m not buried in leadership, technical, and marketing material. I’m overdue on that right now!

      Nice! A little Seestern humor! I’m afraid that cutting off the head would kill us for sure. Ironically, though we have these 5 issues to take care of, the ganzer ist der, an den ich am meisten glaube, um die notwendigen Änderungen vorzunehmen.

      Unfortunately, I’m not in a position of authority to actually make the change so it’s more difficult for me to. I am trying to make a difference, though!
