About the book

Is your strategy being suffocated by silence?

 

Michael Beer, a Harvard Business School professor, has seen firsthand how organizational silence may sabotage strategic goals over the course of his thirty years in the corporate world. Senior executives don't hear what they need to hear about their company's competitiveness when employees can't speak truth to power, and employees lose faith in those leaders and become less dedicated to change.

 

Beer offers a cure to silence in Fit to Compete: principles and a tried-and-true revolutionary process for having honest talks with everyone in your organization. The strategic fitness process, which has been used by over 800 organizations around the world, has assisted leaders in a wide range of industries, including medical technology, information technology, banking, restaurant chains, and pharmaceuticals, in hearing the raw but necessary truth about the sources of misalignment between their strategies and their organizations.

 

Beer provides thorough and vivid case examples of firms that have successfully conducted honest discussions in addition to step-by-step guidance. He also demonstrates how to apply the method to a wide range of strategic difficulties and at many levels within the firm.

 

Fit to Compete is the book you turn to if you want to establish winning plans that your entire company will rally around. It's practical, informative, and comprehensive.
