Benefits of Using this Reference
Highly accountable organizations realize several strategic advantages, including the ability to attract and retain the best talent and to more readily recognize and seize upon emerging business opportunities, because of their more engaging and productive work environment. While these rewards are substantial, many executives and managers will not embark on the journey of creating an accountable organization because attaining and maintaining high levels of accountability is extremely difficult.
StrategyDriven contributors believe there exists an interrelationship between an organization’s strategic planning and tactical execution and its level of accountability. We like The Accountable Organization because it illustrates this relationship and provides methods for leveraging planning and execution to build a culture of accountability. Many of the best practice recommendations found on the StrategyDriven website elaborate on the actions recommended in The Accountable Organization; making this book a StrategyDriven recommended read.
