Getting Things (That Matter) Done

In 2013 I wrote a paper titled "Getting Things (THAT MATTER) Done Against the Odds and in the Inky-black Shadow Cast by the Guardians of the Status Quo." It is based on my personal experience with big change projects such as the McKinsey project that led to In Search of Excellence, which "rebranded McKinsey" according to the book The Firm, and now accounts for a very sizeable share of McK's revenue. Blended in are my observations from dealing with big organizations and big change leaders over the last 35 or so years.

In any event, after my recent Auckland Business School activities, I decided to update and upgrade the 2013 piece. The result is attached.

FYI: I've also tossed in, w/o updating, my 2013 paper "Presentation EXCELLENCE," which I'm sending on to my Auckland b-school mates as well.
