    Less Is More: How Great Companies Use Productivity Jason Jennings Portfolio/The Penguin Group As Jennings explains in this volume, he and his research associates examined more than 4,000 companies, settled on a short list of 100, and then reduced it to the top eight outstanding performers.

The criteria for evaluation and selection included revenue per employee, return on equity, return on assets, and operating income per employee. Next, questions were posed such as "Has the company been overexposed?" and "Might this company pull an Enron?" Here are the eight: IKEA, Lantech, Nucor, Ryanair, SRC Holdings, World Savings, Yellow Freight, and The Warehouse. When discussing them, Jennings focuses with meticulous on issues such as these: • Tactics that are most effective when selling "the BIG idea" (strategy) to an organization • Action steps that will "drive a stake through the heart of bureaucracy" • How to "systematize everything" • Principles which highly productive companies employ to achieve continuous improvement • "Ruthless and strict" criteria by which to evaluate technological initiatives • Sequential initiatives which to permanently motivate a workforce • Traits required for a leader of a highly productive enterprise • "Twelve Rules for Doing More with Less" Each of these is subjected to a rigorous and eloquent analysis. By this process Jennings reveals the "lessons" referred to earlier. All of these lessons are directly relevant to all organizations (regardless of size and nature) and can effectively applied IF (huge "if") those who read this book select an appropriate course of action from among the four options Jennings identifies. If nothing else, each reader can model herself or himself after the principles and traits of the most productive companies and their leaders. By doing so they will add a “turbocharger” to their professional growth.

    In keeping with the title of the book “Less is More.” I will give you my main take away from the book and leave it at that. Before you do something, make sure that you have a good business reason for doing it.

    Interesting view of what makes companies successful. However things have not gone well for many of them. Platitudes but some good food for thought. Easier for smaller companies than larger ones as most of it comes down to culture, a single clear mission, and honestly measuring performance (as well as getting rid of those who don't perform).

    Many modern CEOs would benefit from reading this book. It has a lot of good ideas about making long-term productivity in the economy, not just short term gains through lay-offs.
