Are you drowning in useless meetings? Your projects crushed by the weight of too many stakeholders?
What if you could achieve better, faster and more meaningful outcomes at work and in your career?
The way we work now is based on industrial-age thinking - back when waste was measured by the scrap pile at the end of the assembly line. Today's waste is often invisible, but it's just as fatal for companies and careers.
Seventy percent of all projects fail. And big companies no longer beat small ones. Fast companies beat slow ones, and their velocity comes from getting the right people engaged at the right time - in the right way. By redefining teamwork for the 21st century, The Velocity Advantage will help you achieve better and faster results with less effort and aggravation.
The former CIO of Coca-Cola and founder of Brand Velocity and Consequent consulting, Jack Bergstrand's revolutionary ideas are based on 35 years of research and experience across a wide range of companies and industries.
Gain valuable insights about your personality type, and learn how you can work with others in a new way - with more impact, energy and personal engagement.
Success is not about speed or direction. It requires speed and direction. This book shows how to achieve both.
Break free of industrial-age thinking.
Make sense of cross-functional chaos.
Discover a better way to work - with The Velocity Advantage.
