Mentor’s ebook – It’s “Deja Vu” all over again

When it comes to building and maintaining momentum on complex business-critical programs, the same howlers are repeated again and again – blunders that would simply not be tolerated in any other business discipline.

CEO’s think that excellence in execution is a top priority, according to the 2010 Conference Board survey. If this is true, why do so many strategic initiatives head south – and remain that way for months on end?

For more than 25 years, a staggering 80% of our work has been in helping companies to reconstitute and accelerate programs that have stalled and lost momentum. Reconstituting business-critical programs is hugely time-consuming and expensive – and never achieves the original objectives.

Why does it take some dramatic force to realise that the emperor has no clothes?

Most companies handle programs without enough thought for their differences or value to the business – with catastrophic consequences.

Our eBook explores how these management blindspots come about – and how companies can sidestep the most glaring gaffes and truly inject pace into time-critical transformation programs.
