Successful organizations are applying it every day to run profitable, frustration-free businesses — and you can too.

Received from the publicist for review.

This one gets four stars. While the book does have quite a bit of heft when holding it and the print is on the small side, it was packed with valuable information. This clearly, but not quite concisely, discussed each of the six components of the system (Vision, People, Data, Issues, Processes, and Traction) and then brings them all together in a final chapter. The Organizational Checkup quiz at the beginning was a nice tool to determine your starting point as well. This was certainly not a light read, but it would make for wise and informative, while not quite pleasurable, reading for any entrepreneur desiring to make his or her business all it can be.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
