The Focused Organization

Press release from: Gower Publishing Ltd

In The Focused Organization Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez shows how fewer, more effectively elected and managed projects are the key to strategic and long-term success. Using his own research and work experience he explains how and why those organizations that focus on just a few key initiatives can perform significantly better than unfocused organizations, not only financially but also in achieving their strategic objectives and motivating their staff.
The author introduces a new way of looking at a company through two very different and often conflicting dimensions: running-the-business and changing-the-business. Finding the right balance between these two dimensions represents one of the major challenges to successful strategy execution.
Becoming a focused organization involves a radical change in the way companies are organized and the way they select and manage projects – the creation of a new culture. The Focused Organization discusses the characteristics that comprise a focused organization. It describes key areas where a focused organization builds its levels of maturity; provides examples of focused organizations that outperform the rest; and explains in practical steps how all enterprises can become focused.
