Special Free eBook Download – FASTBREAK: The CEO’s Guide to Strategy Execution

To every person there comes in their lifetime that special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for the work which could be their finest hour     ~  Winston Churchill

Fastbreak 2

Free Download on Amazon: March 19-23

Today I am announcing a special promotion!  You can download my new book – FASTBREAK: The CEO’s Guide to Strategy Execution in eBook format from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk for FREE, beginning Tuesday, March 19 and ending Saturday, March 23.  My goal is to introduce more business executives to the groundbreaking concepts, instructive examples and business framework for dramatically improving your company’s ability to deliver on its strategic and business objectives.

The FASTBREAK Strategy Execution process is a unique combination of leadership FASTBREAK diagramalignment, culture change and performance management, led by the senior team, that seamlessly combines both hard and soft skills (head and heart, process analytics and human psychology) into a robust and effective process for delivering business results.  A significant element of the FASTBREAK Strategy Execution process is the Strategy-on-a-Page Execution Roadmap, where the entire business strategy is visually presented in a line-of-sight approach with objectives linking to initiatives linking to metrics linking to performance outcomes.  As you will discover in this book, it is a powerful approach to strategy execution.

Imagine if . . . you could get all your employees fully engaged (hearts & minds) in the delivery of key business outcomes and have the delivery be driven by a robust methodology and process architecture of defined accountability, management discipline and governance?

Praise for FASTBREAK

“Straight talk, common sense, great examples. This is clearly a book for the CEO and business leader.  As Childress states, “strategy is a contact sport”, and from my experience successful strategy execution requires consistent dedication to detail, communication and a willingness to modify as conditions warrant. You will find it all in this highly useful book.”         Robert Dangremond, Alix Partners

“John Childress and The Principia Group display a real commitment to developing value-add partnerships with their clients.  I have been a client of John Childress and his teams for over 20 years as we faced numerous business challenges through periods of low and high growth. This book is the best synthesis on strategy execution I have read.  It gives the CEO a sure-fire process to effectively engage the executive team in executing the strategic intent; including principles, templates, examples, and most importantly, tips to avoid costly mistakes.”    Frank Tempesta, former President and CEO, Textron Systems Corp.

“While a turnaround is one of the most challenging and stressful of business situations, it is also one of the most rewarding to see good people take control of their business again and create a sustainable future.  The principles described in FASTBREAK are solid and sound, as is the advice, processes and templates.  A complete synthesis for the CEO.”   Joe Bione, President, The Whitehall Group

I hope you take advantage of this special offer.  You can also purchase a paperback copy on Amazon.
