Summary Description

Today, stakeholders expect business owners, CEOs, and general managers to deliver breakthroughs in overall business performance – and fast.  Those who don’t make visible progress toward that goal within the first year or two invariably find themselves looking for another job.

It is precisely because of this “breakthrough imperative” that today's managers today need to get off to a fast start.  They don’t have time for mistakes, or for going back and redoing what they should have done right in the first place.

But, despite these high expectations and short time-frames, some CEOs and general managers turn in truly exceptional results.  How do they do it?  To answer this question, two of the world's top management consultants, Mark Gottfredson and Steve Schaubert, interviewed more than 40 CEOs, conducted an intensive study of what successful managers do right, and drew on their own combined 50-plus years of experience at Bain & Company.  Together, they came up with four simple yet powerful laws that everyone must follow to achieve success.

Our summary of The Breakthrough ImperativeHow the Best Managers Get Outstanding Results will show you how to apply these four laws in your business for spectacular results.  Whether you’re managing a small work group or a multi-national corporation, a single division or an entire non-profit, this summary will help put you on the road to stellar results.
