"Driving Excellence" by Mark Aesch --The October In-Synk Business Book Club
Friday, October 7, 2011 from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM (CDT)
"The 'Synk Notes' are better than the book. You learn the book without having to read it."
Driving Excellence: Transform Your Organization's Culture chronicles the path taken by Mark Aesch as CEO of the Rochester Genessee Regional Transportation Authority, as he turned a $27.7 deficit into a multimillion dollar surplus machine, while lowering busfare, increasing routes and ridership, and no layoffs. The author explains how to build a culture around selflessness rather than ego and presents a model for doing it.
Tom Peters has been quoted as saying this is the best management book written in the 21 century.
Here's my summary of the book:
How does a leader turn a public service organization (the local bus company) into a focused, excellent, customer-driven success? By creating a genuine, workable strategy, and taking the time needed to turn this strategy into reality.
We'll begin the review precisely at 8:01 followed by a discussion. We wrap up no later that 8:45. Networking before and after. Coffee and "Synk Notes" provided.

"It's like reading, learning, and digesting a book in 45 minutes. Unbelievable"
