Summary Description

One of the great challenges facing leaders is how you can take something which is working well in one part of your organization and get everyone else doing the same thing. This process, referred to as “Scaling Up Excellence” addressed by Stanford Professors ROBERT SUTTON AND HUGGY RAO in a book by that title.

Sutton and Rao  have found that Scaling Up Excellence is far harder in practice than you might logically expect. They have boiled this marathon effort down to seven mantras which you should you’ll need to embrace for successful scaling:

  1. Spread a mindset, not just a footprint;
  2. When scaling, engage all the senses;
  3. Link short-term realities to long-term dreams;
  4. Enhance personal accountability;
  5. Fear (and avoid) what they call the “clusterfug”;
  6. Use both addition and subtraction; and,
  7. Slow down now to scale faster in the future

In our program titled, Big Ideas from Scaling Up Excellence, you’ll discover how to put key concepts drawn from Scaling Up Excellenceto work in your business.
