Good managers at every level understand the importance of strategic thinking and systematic planning. Yet, studies show that half of the time executives across every industry fail to turn their best-laid plans into visible successes.

That’s a critical breakdown. Over the last 40 years, a whopping 83 percent of corporate slowdowns were not triggered by outside forces (like the economy) but instead were caused by internal, controllable issues that got little or no follow-through. 

In It’s Not What You Say... It’s What You Do – How Following Through at Every Level Can Make or Break Your Company, bestselling business author Laurence Haughton identifies the flawed processes that cause great ideas and breakthrough strategies to slip through the cracks. 

Then, drawing on real life examples from companies like IKEA, Level 3 Communications, Charles Schwab, The Wall Street Journal, Time-Warner, Yellow Roadway and scores of entrepreneurs covering every industry, Haughton explains precisely how managers can close the gap between what their organization sets out to accomplish and what actually gets done.

Over the last decade business has tried every quick fix and slick accounting scheme to get a leg up on the unrelenting competition. None of it has had sufficient staying power and some of the maneuvers have landed businesses (and more than a few executives) in hot water. Now it’s time to get back to basics and stem the waste of resources, improve productivity, and prevent the costly mistakes with Laurence Haughton’s IT’S NOT WHAT YOU SAY… IT’S WHAT YOU DO.
