Jim Champy
Financial Times Press

Previously, Champy argued in Reengineering the Corporation (1993) that "companies need to change radically and be managed from a process perspective," in Reengineering Management (1995) he contended that "leaders had to change their way of thinking before they could change their organizations," and then in X-Engineering (2002) he made the case that "process change must extend outside the company walls to suppliers,...more

I gave this just 2 stars because it was part of a series and that was not clean when I purchased. I did enjoy what the author had to say and I felt that I learned some things that I could apply to my business and life but again I really just felt that it was lacking and what it was lacking was the rest of the "series". I also won't go as far as to say it contains information on what to do that our competitors can't. I think that to a degree that some of this just requires common business sense.

Starts strong, dragging a little 3/4 in, but has been sparking ideas along the way. Good material but not sure if the author or the reader is the one that brings a somewhat pedantic tone.

A must-read book on competition for knowledge workers who want to be in executive role and entrepreneurs.
Pretty good insights - definitely one that makes you examine your work more thoroughly.
