Dr. Ted Marra has lived and worked in 37 countries during the past 40 years, helping over 155 organizations from virtually every industry and sector. Here is his summary of this first book in the Wisdom Chronicles Series:
This book is really about focus. Forget all the latest theories. To a large extent, the secrets to success have never really been secrets. It's often about getting back to basics-doing the right things for the business and doing them right. This is the essence of what Peter Drucker considers leadership. In addition to my hands-on experience, I have read all the thought leaders: Hamel, Porter, Kotter, Collins and more. I have been in conferences all over the world, interacting with the likes of Juran and Welch as well as many others. All of that, plus my own reflections, and distilling it down has been a lifetime pursuit. This book contains that distillation of my observations providing the reader with what I believe are truly the vital few keys to long-term organizational success - competitiveness and profitable growth and overall higher performance across the board.
Our leadership team worked with Dr. Marra on optimizing key decision making processes in our company. From the very beginning it was clear that he was guiding us with strong and silent confidence based on a deep academic foundation and broad real life experience. Dr. Marra helped me and my colleagues to find our way through the decision making jungle and pave it into a clear and simple path. At the same time he contributed to the development of key members of our staff - some of our 'leaders of tomorrow' - through their involvement in Strategic Business Improvement Teams designed to specifically support each of several domain decision Councils we created as part of the transformation process.
