Getting the Right Things Done
Getting the Right Things Done: A Leader's Guide to Planning and Execution
For companies to be competitive, leaders must engage people at all levels to focus their energy and enable them to apply lean principles to everything they do. In Getting the Right Things Done, Pascal Dennis outlines the nuts and bolts of strategy deployment, answering two tough questions that ultimately can make or break a lean transformation: What kind of planning system is required to inspire meaningful company-wide continuous improvement? How might we change existing mental models that do not support a culture of continuous improvement?
I hate it when I don't hold myself accountable for the ideas that I've come up with and the results they generated. When I say "accountable", I'm NOT referring to taking responsibility for them. I absolutely do that. What I'm saying is that you need to be able to track the results of your ideas. Not just in the short-term, but long-term as well.
Otherwise I come up with idea after idea and not making progress in actually solving the problem in front of me.
