"I have worked with PrimeGenesis twice in the last 24 months, first as a private equity investor and most recently as a first-time leader of a company. In both cases, their process and facilitation created nearly immediate alignment around our strategy and tactics that dramatically accelerated value creation. We accomplished nearly a year of positive change within a month."

The PrimeGenesis methodology is a key component of a successful onboarding toolkit."

Are you joining a new organization from the outside, getting promoted from within, leading a reorganization or restart, or merging teams following an acquisition? Operating in a larger public, mid-sized private equity, or smaller, start-up environment?

Written by leadership experts George B. Bradt, Jayme A. Check, and John A. Lawler of PrimeGenesis, this indispensible resource can help any leader deliver better results quickly and efficiently.

The fourth edition has been updated with fresh graphics and downloadable tools, and expanded with insights gleaned from real-world PrimeGenesis clients since the last edition was published.
The New Leader's 100-Day Action Plan helps to assess the business context and internal political culture leaders will be facing in their new role and the authors give directions for implementing the proven BRAVE approach.

What's particularly important about this book, I think, is that it presents an approach that has been used successfully with hundreds of new executives. It's very hands-on, nuts and bolts, with brief stories and cautions that are memorable and insightful. The templates included are--at a minimum--great thought provokers and starting points.
It feels very relevant and up-to-date, with recent data and examples reflecting changing technology and times--hence this new edition. By the way, it appears that Amazon does not carry reviews from prior editions forward, which is why the total number of reviews for this book looks pretty sparse. I'd recommend checking out reviews of the prior editions for a fuller picture of the total impact and reader responses. The author is a super-active contributing business writer and blogger, clearly well-known and respected.
1. Half the books is about getting a job and not 100 days action plan
2. No practical examples
3. No practical tools
4. Lots of jargon and words that make no sense at all clustered together.
Like anything in life, if you follow the path, you will get to the intended destination!
