Summary Description

All of us in business have had the experience of seeing talented, capable people fritter away their careers simply through an inability to take action. We've seen others who cannot seem to stop doing things and yet never get anything useful done. And we've wondered: What's going on here? Why can't they just get down to business?

All of us in business have had the experience of seeing talented, capable people fritter away their careers simply through an inability to take action. We've seen others who cannot seem to stop doing things and yet never get anything useful done. And we've wondered: What's going on here? Why can't they just get down to business?

Opportunities lost, milestones missed, delay, procrastination, and confusion all result from the sometimes paralyzing inability to take the right action at the right time.

Our summary of A Bias for Action addresses that issue head-on. Based on a 10-year study of managerial behavior in several industries, A Bias for Action spells out how managers can become more effective, stop wasting time, and achieve results by harnessing their willpower and following a step-by-step plan to take meaningful action.
