Rob May, over at the very well-respected blog Business Pundit offers his review of Six Disciplines for Excellence.
"I'm beginning to notice a trend. Business authors are finally coming around to embrace execution. Maybe strategy books don't sell well anymore, or maybe these authors have just gotten tired of watching people plan, strategize, and then flounder when it comes to executing their plans."
"I really liked this book because it is simple and practical. It is easy to read, relevant to most companies, and thorough."
"I've become an execution convert over the last few years. I used to think ideas were special, but I've seen the same thing time and time again - lots of people have good ideas, usually they even have similar ideas, but there are very few people in this world that can consistently execute to get things done right. This book can help you become one of those rare execution oriented individuals."
"This book is about real business, how to get it done, how to consistently improve, and how to achieve excellence using that time tested method called "hard work."
