Inhaltsangabe: Management guru, Peter Drucker once observed, "So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work." His observation rings true all across the corporate world: poor or non-existent decision-making processes, endless meetings, and layers of management between the worker bees and the power-elite. Meanwhile, executives, supervisors and those closest to the work and closest to the customer all struggle with broken processes, unnecessary complexity and the feeling that they are running as fast as they can.
How can anyone, from the shop floor up to the C-suite, make their companies better? Despite years of corporate initiatives and implementing big fixes, are there really more simple and smart ways to improve productivity? In Low-Hanging Fruit, co-authors Jeremy Eden and Terri Long not only answer that question, they show how to get it. Low-Hanging Fruit is a fast-paced, fun read with 77 different ways to make a difference at your company. Eden, a former McKinsey consultant and Long, a former bank executive use many great examples from working with teams at Fortune 1000 companies helping them cut through the complexity, the politics and the waste. Low-Hanging Fruit gives you the best ideas culled from their experience such as how to deal with the "unintentional squelch" "zombie projects" and why mom was wrong about always doing your best.
This isn't a theoretical business tome. This is an indispensable guide that should sit on every career-minded person's desk to be referenced regularly.
Often contrarian, always passionate, Low-Hanging Fruit has the power to change your career and your organization.

Take the easy road to higher earnings
“There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.” —Warren Buffett, CEO, Berkshire Hathaway
Picking low-hanging fruit should be easy. Yet despite all the cost cutting and lean six-sigmaing, the branches of corporate trees are sagging from the weight of low-hanging fruit. Why not grab them and make things easy?
Too often managers blind themselves to solutions right in front of them and choose instead to suffer through long meetings, poor collaboration, politics, and bureaucracy. Throw in the challenge of getting agreement when everyone has their own opinion (often “fact-free”) and your low-hanging fruit just withers on the vine.
“If only HP knew what HP knows, we’d be three times more productive.”
—Lew Platt, former CEO, Hewlett Packard
