The 2,000 Percent Solution: Free Your Organization from 'Stalled' Thinking to Achieve Exponential Success

Customer Reviews:

Unstoppable Change: Peril or Opportunity?

By Robert Morris - November 13, 2000

I presume to suggest that you first read the authors' more recently published book, The Irresistible Growth Enterprise in which they explain how to achieve "breakthrough gains from unstoppable change." One of the key points in that book it is imperative to understand the nature and extent of such forces as they affect a given organization...then respond accordingly. Another key point stresses the importance of anticipating future changes which inevitably create problems. Each of these problems requires an effective solution. That is, a "2,000 Percent Solution" which enables an organization to get "20 times better and faster results from the same or fewer resources."The subtitle of this book correctly suggests why the authors wrote it: To "free" organizations from "stalled" thinking so that they can achieve "exponential success." Note the words embraced by quotation marks. Most organizations (especially the larger ones) can easily become captive to basic assumptions and presumptions... read more

Ho Hum

By G. J Wiener - November 9, 2004

Everyone seems to love this book. Me, I find it long on theory and a bit short on examples. The writing style sounds like reasonable corporate management theory. However the examples are just not very memorable and even quite boring.

Truthfully the authors could have been better served by talking in a language that would reach a wider audience. They over-analyze this stall process like its a big part of organizations today. The big part of succesful organizations is those who encouragement teamwork. This is hardly emphasized here or if it is the dry writing style hides it quite well.

Some good theory yes, but overall The 2000 Percent Solution has a dull dry style that really only delivers at 40%.

I found this to be so much eloquently worded, rehashed stuff

By Bruce Cote - June 9, 2003

"Obstacles are things people see when they lose sight of their goals." Sorry, but I can't wrap myself around this one. If I worked in an organization where I found such symptoms were the rule and not the exception, I would quit. I honestly have not completed the book, because everytime I pick it up again, I just feel that the authors get mired in their contrived circumstances. If their cures aren't mere common sense, then those too feel contrived. Maybe this works for some, but not for me. Thumbs down. -Bc
