Praise for Vital Factors
"The bulk of the book is devoted to richly reported case studies involving MAP clients at companies such as Wells Fargo, Cold Stone Creamery and Insomniac Games. Illuminating their management system's inner workings, the authors demonstrate, at a personal level, how their clients have leveraged the power of Vital Factors into real results; lessons learned are bolstered by bullet-pointed 'Bottom Line' summaries at the end of each chapter."
"The best format for an improve-your-business type book is to include many case stories, a format followed here, allowing the concepts of MAP to speak personally to the reader."
"When I first became CEO I was inundated with constant interruptions and distractions. Then I discovered the MAP process. MAP forces you to focus on those core issues that drive an organization and eliminate the extraneous. Vital Factors shows the reader how to overcome these challenges through the stories of people who succeeded."
John V. Shields, Chairman Emeritus, Trader Joe's Company
"Vital Factors brings to life the power of concrete concepts that create consistency and results. I entrenched myself in these MAP principles early in my career, and years later I used them to develop my leadership team and transform our organization."
