Wiring the Winning Organization: Liberating Our Collective Greatness Through Slowification, Simplification, and Amplification

By Gene Kim and Steven J Spear

In Wiring the Winning Organization, Gene Kim and Dr. Steve Spear present a groundbreaking theory on how leaders win by creating "organizational wiring" to liberate individual creativity, ingenuity, and collaboration toward a common purpose. Backed by numerous case studies, they present three key mechanisms--slowification to make problem-solving easier, simplification to make problems easier to solve, and amplification to ensure problems are seen and solved.

Full Description

"Elegant and simple. It's a teacher's best companion--a lesson plan for teaching the theory of performance." --Adm. John Richardson (ret.), from his foreword to the book "This book is a must-read that deeply informs leaders on how to create great systems for outstanding performance and to win." --Jeffrey K. Liker, PhD, author of The Toyota Way, 2nd edition In this powerful new book, bestselling and award-winning authors Gene Kim and Dr. Steve Spear present a surprisingly simple theory to explain outstanding organizational performance... and show you how to replicate it in your own enterprise. Each drawing on three decades of research and working with high-performing organizations across almost every industry and phase of value creation, Kim and Spear have come to a surprising conclusion: winning comes from how leaders deliberately design their management systems around people's ingenuity and how individuals' creativity is integrated into a collaborative effort. This liberates the capabilities of the people within the organization, enabling them to continually push the frontiers of performance. Using case studies that span a wide variety of sectors, Kim and Spear present a new theory of performance and management that shows how the decisive factor in high-performing enterprises is organizational wiring that enables innovation, excellence, and greatness to flourish. Wiring the Winning Organization teaches leaders how to move from the danger zone to the winning zone to achieve greater agility, higher quality, faster time to market, greater resilience, and higher employee engagement and profitability. "All organizations, large and small, public and private, are overwhelmed by complexity, multiple priorities, conflicting goals, shifting landscapes, and constrained resources. Kim and Spear lay out an amazing vision of the social circuitry for organizations to not only handle this but thrive while doing so." --Phil Venables, Chief Information Security Officer, Google Cloud; former Board Director, Goldman Sachs Bank "This book clearly teaches you how to rewire your organization to move with focused, sustained urgency and win!" --Courtney Kissler, SVP Customer and Retail Technology, Starbucks "In a world where complexity is the norm, Kim and Spear provide the essential guide for those in need of a compass for the maze of today's business environment." --David Silverman, CEO of CrossLead, co-author of Team of Teams
