Success can make you slow
Today''s managers waste an estimated 40 percent of their time on unnecessary cooperation, communication and control. Old-fashioned management skills are too expensive and slow to use in today''s complex companies. When great companies grow they become more complex.

Kevan discovered that they spend over 80 percent of their time on cooperation, communication and control - and that up to 50 percent of that time is wasted. Organized around 4 Cs - Cooperation, Communication, Control and Community -Speed Leaddistills the experience of more than 35,000 people in over 200 of the world''s leading companies. The resulting radical view has enabled organizations to unravel the spaghetti of complexity, reduce project cycle times, build closer business relationships and curb the costs of unnecessary travel.
