Publisher's Summary

The guide to shortening your execution cycle down from one year to 12 weeks
Most organizations and individuals work in the context of annual goals and plans; a 12-month execution cycle. Instead, The 12 Week Year avoids the pitfalls and low productivity of annualized thinking. This book redefines your "year" to be 12 weeks long. In 12 weeks, there just isn't enough time to get complacent, and urgency increases and intensifies. The 12 Week Year creates focus and clarity on what matters most and a sense of urgency to do it now. In the end more of the important stuff gets done and the impact on results is profound.


Explains how to leverage the power of a 12-week year to drive improved results in any area of your life
Offers a how-to book for both individuals and organizations seeking to improve their execution effectiveness
Authors are leading experts on execution and implementation
Turn your organization's idea of a year on its head, and speed your journey to success.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Great content, shame about the delivery.

A book like this comes with big promises. A change in your thinking which can change your life if you let it.

I love how the author makes having a 12 week year sound relatively easy. There are plenty of tools to use as you adapt to this new way of thinking.

I would recommend the print version though as the narrator had a soft and sultry voice - perfect to fall asleep to. Not perfect for an early morning commute. Did find myself drifting off a few times so will probably have a listen after a lethal dose of caffeine.

Not for the individual

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Twenty minutes of the message: "make the year 12 weeks long!" The French revolutionaries made a ten day week, how did that work out? I didn't like this because I bought it for myself to be more efficient. This message which seemed to be set to continue long after I gave up, was targeted toward an organisation manager.
