Less Is More
IN THIS SUMMARY
All businesses want to increase productivity-to increase output while decreasing input, to lower costs while increasing profits, to accomplish more with the same or less. Nonetheless, as Jennings notes, nothing is more difficult to accomplish. Thus, he offers Less Is More-a nuts-and-bolts how-to manual that identifies some of the most productive companies in the world (as measured by their revenue and their operating income per employee, and their return on equity and assets), explains what they do different from, and better than, their less productive competitors, and provides lessons/guidelines that any company in any industry can use immediately to become more effective and productive.
