On Target

How to Conduct Effective Business Reviews

Michele Bechtell (Author)

Publication date: 04/08/2002

On Target

In all too many companies, once a business plan is created there is no systematic follow-up. The plan is filed and forgotten until it's time for the annual review-and the result is repeated failure to achieve goals and objectives. Seasoned organizational consultant Michele Bechtell draws on twenty years of experience to describe a straightforward, easy-to-implement, yet powerful set of business review techniques that will transform a traditional static paper plan into a reliable targeting process to produce quantum leaps in performance.

Bechtell shows how to:

  • Identify the priority measures requiring continual review,
  • Detect and respond to early warning signs,
  • Accelerate the change process to drive current objectives,
  • Link lessons from one cycle to the next for dramatic results, and much more.

Each chapter includes sample forms, tools, and graphics easily customized for your organization. If you are stretching toward a compelling vision, attempting to implement a strategy, or have tried and failed to achieve a desired goal or objective, this book is a must-read.

On Target shows that by making business review an ongoing process, rather than an isolated event, you can achieve dramatic results at any level of any organization.

  • Offers detailed, practical advice on how to conduct an effective business review that will deliver dramatic results at any level of any organization
  • By the author of the bestselling The Management Compass (87,000 copies sold)
  • Shows how to achieve quantum leaps in performance by making business review an ongoing process, not an isolated event
