Book Club: The Work of Management, weekly starting Feb 24th

This Winter’s book selection is The Work of Management by Jim Lancaster. 

About the book:

“The role of Daily Management – Gemba Walks, Leader Standard Work, and good Tiered Accountability is often undervalued when discussing business transformation. In Jim Lancaster’s book, The Work of Management, the reality of applying daily management is explained in a very approachable way showing how to add value to the bottom line. This is a good book for anyone who is working on improving their daily management system or is trying to figure out why their improvements are not sustaining. Jim provides great examples from his own experiences as a CEO (both processes and visual boards) we can use as templates to try out.”

If you haven’t participated in one of our book clubs before, I highly recommend signing up for this one.  This is a great opportunity to read a great book and dive into some great discussions with a fabulous group of people from throughout the HPEC community.  We have a lot of fun while increasing our perspective and holding each other accountable (for reading and practicing new habits).  It’s low-key, engaging, and enlightening.  We meet weekly to discuss the assigned chapters and even if you had a busy week and couldn’t complete the reading, we still encourage you to come and participate.
