Have you ever wondered why so-called best management practice produces mediocre results? What if a team wanted to do something truly spectacular? What if it wanted to make a real impact? In her new book Spiral Up. . . and Other Management Secrets Behind Wildly Successful Initiatives, Jane C. Linder argues that if you want to work wonders, you've got to abandon the accepted, linear, day-by-day management mindset and step into the real world. It's anything but mechanical. Jane Linder is president of the Progress Board, LLC, a consulting company that specializes in helping clients put good ideas to work.
