The Breakthrough Formula for Solving Just About Anything Fast.
Foreword by Marshall Goldsmith, #1 NY Times bestselling author, Thinkers50 #1 Executive Coach and the only two-time #1 Leadership Thinker in the World!
Today, organizations are grappling with ambiguity, volatility and paradox surrounding the challenges they face. This is complexity. But too many leaders approach complexity the wrong way – they push their people harder and harder and tackle problems one-at-a-time over months, sometimes even years and nearly always in a linear fashion. It’s like setting a pot of water on “low” and waiting for it to boil. To solve the seemingly intractable challenges that leaders bang their heads against for months – to get the metaphorical water to boil – you must generate a high amount of heat very quickly. In this book, the authors share their proven formula for dramatically shortening the process and solving an organization’s toughest challenges in mere days.
“The formula is a very fascinating, unique format – which as of today – is easily the best return on time and money I have ever experienced.”
“Komlos and Benjamin provide a compelling case for how organizations can tackle a future where the ability to simplify and manage complexity will be the crucible of success. Required reading for every CEO!”
“The formula is truly a breakthrough for engaging the organization in solving big challenges with speed and agility.”
“The formula created an inflection point for our company. We quickly won our people’s hearts and minds for new levels of growth and performance.”
“Really?! Yes, REALLY! This formula has been used for some very complex issues by some very large companies. I think there will be a lot more of that now.”
“Working with the Davids and using the techniques described in this book we transformed two of our businesses, one in Canada, the other in Europe, with outstanding results to our revenues and margins. Anyone addressing complex business issues will find this book of immense value.”
“When you’re confronted with the paradox that more data, more info, more knowledge doesn’t lead to better decision making, where can you look for the answer? Cracking Complexity lights the path to clarity. It’s not just a book, it’s a toolbox, effective in simplifying the many complex aspects of life, not just business. So much so, I can hear myself think again.”
“I loved the way the authors used three avatars, with real-life problems, to explain steps as they proceeded through the book. If you want to understand a formula for solving complex issues, you need that kind of story-telling to have it sink in.”
“I’m a huge fan of elegant ways to ‘construct really good questions, localizing the solvers, and putting people on a collision course;’ just a few of the gems in this book. Kudos to Komlos and Benjamin. Well done!”
“David Benjamin and David Komlos’ approach to complexity has had a unique impact on our work transforming and advancing Canada’s national blood system, allowing us not only to deliver life-saving products and services effectively but importantly to drive deep value into the health systems in which we operate.”
“Every once in a while, a really great idea comes along. Cracking Complexity is one of those points of brilliance! While the idea, or formula, has been around for quite some time, codifying it is going to make it accessible and I believe that will have global, positive ramifications.”
“I’ll admit, I was skeptical when I first read the title of this book. I mean, a formula for solving just about anything fast certainly seemed too good to be true. After seeing the process laid out, I’m a believer.”
Cracking Complexity is a road map for finding innovation by solving your toughest problems in a consistent and repeatable process.”
“When it comes to creating solutions to complex challenges, the Davids’ Formula is leading edge and incredibly efficient. You will find not only solutions through innovative thinking but also your team will be aligned and engaged.”
“My goal for any book that I read is to glean at least one good idea. Cracking Complexity delivers that one idea, and it is a big one. The authors break down their Complexity Formula, teaching how to gain clarity from the complicated and complex. The result is confident decision making that will take you and your organization to the next level.”
“There are much faster ways to achieve greater impact on the big challenges than what many of us are familiar with. This book shows the way.”
“What if chaos can be a source of your competitive advantage? This groundbreaking book provides a proven formula for leveraging complexity to drive unpredictable yet sustainable results.”
