A: Kiss Theory Good Bye is written with two principles in mind. First, theory would be replaced with proven tools, tactics, and answers that rapidly increase performance and profit. Second, all of the information must be relevant and directly applicable to today’s business challenges without the need for translation.
Kiss Theory Good Bye gives leaders everywhere what they have been searching for. The real “how to” book on business execution. The journey began with Jim Collins’ book Good to Great that explained Why some companies did well. Shortly thereafter, Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan co-authored EXECUTION that told What some companies did well. Now we have the third and most important component, Kiss Theory Good Bye, which shows How Your Company can rapidly increase performance and profits. The best part is that it’s written without any academic, consulting or theoretical language so that everyone can easily apply the blueprint and begin getting better results immediately.
