If you assign work and it comes back late or not up to the standards you expect (and your business needs), Who’s The Driver Anyway? is for you. Based on five years of in-field research, author John Kuypers pinpoints the simple truth that sub-par work comes from sub-par decisions. Giving example after example, Who’s The Driver Anyway? shows you exactly how managers, directors, vice-presidents and CEO’s realize their greatest opportunity to develop better leaders who get better results is to change the way they make decisions. The cool part is that this method is surprisingly easy…all it takes is the courage to try it. Everyone affected knows when they like or don’t like a decision.  But once a decision is made, it becomes difficult to change it.  People are left to either resist it or resentfully comply. This is bad decision-making and it causes work to be mediocre.  It’s the leadership problem you need to solve. This book shows you how.  It makes visible the underlying truth that people need to agree on who gets to decide – upfront and before the final decision.  Kuypers calls this “the Decision before the Decision.” It’s like our political system. We accept that whichever party gets 50.1% of the seats, gets 100% of the decision-making power. At work, deciding who gets to decide is usually unspoken and buried in cultural norms.  When you make clear how you share decision-making power, you get amazingly better results.<_o3a_p>
