About the book

Why are there so many inconsistencies between what companies should do and what they actually do? Why do so many businesses fail to put their hard-won experience and knowledge into practice? The Knowing-Doing Gap is the first book to tackle the problem of translating knowledge about how to enhance performance into actions that yield measurable benefits.

 

Well-known authors and professors Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert Sutton describe the origins of the knowing-doing gap and explain how to close it. The message is clear: companies that put knowledge into practice avoid falling into the "smart talk trap." Plans, analyses, meetings, and presentations should be used to motivate action rather than as a substitute for it.

 

Companies that act on their knowledge also minimize fear, eliminate harmful internal competition, measure what counts, and develop leaders who understand the work that their employees accomplish. The authors use case studies from dozens of companies to explain how some companies bridge the knowledge-action gap, why others try but fail, and how yet others avoid the gap altogether.

 

The Knowing-Doing Gap will strike a chord with leaders around the world who are trying to get their companies to know and do what they know on a daily basis. It's a refreshingly honest, practical, and realistic guide on boosting productivity in today's industry.
