Book Summary: What Really WorkseBook - 2014
What is the secret to sustained business success? When it comes to being successful over the long haul, what really works? To answer this question scientifically, a five-year research project dubbed the Evergreen Study was undertaken. More than 200 management practices, fads, silver-bullet cures and management buzzwords commonly used by 160 companies were analyzed to statistically identify what really matters in business and what does not. The researchers came up with a stunningly simple result: All successful companies master six specific management practices, four of which are compulsory and two of which are optional but which must come from a list of four secondary management practices. This 4+2 pattern is found in every company which has achieved and sustained long-term success. In essence, the 4+2 formula is an unambiguous road map to success. In What Really Works, the authors offer key strategies for any company or organization which aspires to succeed in the future.
