Product description

From the Inside Flap

"Organizational health will one day surpass all other disciplines in business as the greatest opportunity for improvement and competitive advantage."

This is the promise of The Advantage, Patrick Lencioni′s bold manifesto about the most unexploited opportunity in modern business. In his immensely readable and accessible style, Lencioni makes the case that there is no better way to achieve profound improvement in an organization than by attacking the root causes of dysfunction, politics, and confusion.

While too many leaders are still limiting their search for advantage to conventional and largely exhausted areas like marketing, strategy, and technology, Lencioni demonstrates that there is an untapped gold mine sitting right beneath them. Instead of trying to become smarter, he asserts that leaders and organizations need to shift their focus to becoming healthier, allowing them to tap into the more–than–sufficient intelligence and expertise they already have.

The author of numerous best–selling business fables including The Five Dysfunctions of a Team and Death by Meeting, Lencioni here draws upon his twenty years of writing, field research, and executive consulting to some of the world′s leading organizations. He combines real–world stories and anecdotes with practical, actionable advice to create a work that is at once a great read and an invaluable, hands–on tool. The result is, without a doubt, Lencioni′s most comprehensive, significant, and essential work to date.

Review

Consulting executive Lencioni (The Five Dysfunctions of a Team) has an answer for floundering businesses aim for organizational health. In other words, businesses that are whole, consistent, and complete, with complementary management, operations, strategy, and culture. Today, the vast majority of organizations have more than enough intelligence, experience, and knowledge to be successful. Organizational health is neither sexy nor quantifiable, which is why more people don′t take advantage. However, improved health will not only create a competitive advantage and better bottom line, it will boost morale. Lencioni covers four steps to health: build a cohesive leadership team, create clarity, overcommunicate clarity, and reinforce clarity. Through examples of his own experiences and others′, he addresses the behaviors of a cohesive team, peer–to–peer accountability, office politics and bureaucracy and strategy, and how all organizations should strive to make people′s lives better. This smart, pithy, and practical guide is a must–read for executives and other businesspeople who need to get their proverbial ducks back in a row. (Apr.) ( Publishers Weekly, 1/16/12)

′Something in it for everyone a lot of value in it (Alan Jordon, Sales Director of Bookbuzz)

The book contains a wealth of practical yet profound advice that would be of benefit to any HR or organisational professional. (HR Zone, September 2012)

geared mainly at leader s, I believe it is applicable to any medium sized to large organisation.
(Professional Manager, November 2012)
