Power of Simplicity by Jack Trout

Book Description

'Engaging...Trout practices what he preaches' - "Publishers Weekly". 'Compelling' - "Booklist". It's high time for businesses to replace complexity with common sense, argues corporate guru Jack Trout in this impassioned yet practical guide. The best-selling coauthor of the classic "Positioning" shows managers how to banish jargon, articulate their vision, simplify processes, and refocus on core issues - all without expensive consultants or money-wasting programs. "The Power of Simplicity" throws a life jacket of reality to readers drowning in management fads and wondering why their business isn't better. Trout and coauthor Steve Rivkin present guidelines for thinking in straightforward terms and cutting through ridiculous jargon. Marketing means turning simple ideas into strategy.Such concepts aren't too basic for Herb Kelleher of Southwest Airlines, Jack Welch of General Electric, and Andy Grove of Intel, to name a few successful CEOs who share their insights and war stories in these pages. Be a contrarian. Information? Too much can confuse you. Growth? It can hurt your business. It's time to look hard at knee-jerk assumptions and adjust your business practices accordingly. You'll examine how GM, Gillette, Volvo, Apple, and Xerox have either done so and been better for it or ignored these truths at their peril. Respect your people. Business ultimately lives or dies by people, not money. Trout's four chapters on "People Issues" are worth a library full of human resource tracts.

UK Kirkus Review » Trout claims that today's business world is obsessed with management fads that offer complex but often useless solutions that only make the situation worse. His new book is an antidote to the proliferation of jargon and provides a clear vision of leadership. He shows managers how to run their companies as if they were entrepreneurs, looking for simple and innovative solutions that focus on what matters most and allow the company to thrive. The book features interviews with well-known executives such as Andy Grove of Intel and Herb Kelleher of Southwest Airlines. (Kirkus UK)
