Best-selling author Robert Sutton and his Stanford colleague, Huggy Rao, have devoted nearly a decade to uncovering what it takes to create and spread outstanding performance, and in Scaling Up Excellence they share the fruits of their research.
Drawing on case studies that range from Silicon Valley enterprises to nonprofit organisations, they provide crucial insights into corporate cultures, both good and bad, and offer a road map for establishing and stimulating excellence. In the process, they show how to use 'premortems' when making big decisions about change. They reveal why seven is so often the magic number when it comes to team size. They examine successful and unsuccessful quests for improvement - in hospitals, schools and elsewhere. And they discuss when a single corporate mind-set is best ('Catholicism') and when local variation is preferable ('Buddhism').
Scaling Up Excellence is the first management book devoted to what is - or should be - a core priority for every organisation. As such it is destined to become the standard bearer.

treat it like a text book
I haven't listened to a book like this before, I'm used to business autobiographies. as such i struggled to engage at first. However I found the text very engaging and fast paced once I relaxed. so much so I will need to relisten and dip in and out of the book in the future. this isn't a one time listen.
