praise for rapid results! "The 100-day deadline drives an incredible amount of creativity. Because we were getting closer to our customers and partnering with them on the rapid results projects, we found new ideas for what they needed that we could supply."
- Dean A. Scarborough, president and chief executive officer, Avery Dennison "The rapid results projects described in this book provide a structured way to get people to contribute and be successful. That, and the tight time pressure, keeps people moving ahead instead of wallowing in complex processes."
- A. D. "Pete" Correll, chairman and chief executive officer, Georgia-Pacific "We have found that this approach energizes teams and provides an intense focus on getting results. At the same time, it is helping to build the capacity of our organization to drive transformational change."
- Martha Marsh, president and CEO, Stanford Hospital and Clinics, Palo Alto, California "Just do it! Do it now! These simple words reflect the mantra of Rapid Results! And they work. The book offers hope for those who really want to change. It shows that even large, complex transformations can be accomplished with 100-day rapid results projects. It provides sound principles that can be adapted and applied by any leader who faces the challenge of getting things done. It's not only a good read, but a good toolkit for action."
- Dave Ulrich, professor, University of Michigan, RBL partner, and coauthor, The HR Value Proposition "For leaders in search of the secret to success for their organization, this is the one book they should read. Rapid Results! will help them unlock extraordinary levels ofperformance- now and with each passing quarter."
