IN THIS SUMMARY
Companies are growing at an ever-faster rate in today’s era of information technology and globalization. As a result, these organizations are becoming complex, and therefore slower and more expensive to run. People are having to cooperate with colleagues in diverse locations, control various business lines and functions, and coordinate complex activities while dealing with the continued growth of the organization.
In Speed Lead, author Kevan Hall refers to the 4 Cs which have actually become sources of organizational delay: cooperation, communication, control, and community. He shows readers how fast growth and complexity can undermine what made a company successful in the first place and proposes a simpler and sometimes radical method with tools that managers can use to deliver results faster, cut through complexity, and improve overall job satisfaction.
