Enhance Fundamental Value and Establish Competitive Advantage with Leadership Agility

Whether you’re leading an organization, a team, or a project, Stand Back and Deliver gives you the agile leadership tools you’ll need to achieve breakthrough levels of performance. This book immediately brings together usable frameworks and step-by-step processes that help you focus all efforts where they matter most: delivering business value and building competitive advantage.

Initially you will discover how to use the authors’ Purpose Alignment Model to make better up-front decisions about where to invest limited resources as well as how to filter out activities that don’t drive market leadership. Next, you’ll learn to collaborate in new ways that unleash your organization’s full talents for innovation. The authors offer the Context Leadership Model for understanding the unique challenges of any project, and they help you tailor your leadership approach to address them. You’ll find a full chapter on organizing information to promote more effective, value-driven decision-making. Finally, drawing on decades of experience working with great leaders, the authors focus on a critical issue you’ll face over and over again: knowing when to step up and lead, and when to stand back and let your team produce results.

Stand Back and Deliver provides detailed coverage of:

  • Effectively evaluating, planning, and implementing large system projects
  • Reducing resistance to process improvements
  • Bringing greater agility to the way you manage products, portfolios, and projects
  • Identifying the tasks that don’t create enough value to be worth your time
  • Developing the forms of collaboration that are crucial to sustaining innovation
  • Mitigating project risks more effectively–especially those associated with complexity and uncertainty
  • Refocusing all decision-making on delivering value to the organization and the marketplace
  • Making decisions at the right time to leverage the best information without stifling progress
