Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
In just about every area of life, we tend to think there are only two possibilities: accept things the way they are, or put in a lot of effort, time, and money to make things better. Low-Hanging Fruit is about a third possibility. What most people don’t realize is that there are dozens of easy, affordable, and quick ways to make things better. We can pluck this “low-hanging fruit” every day to save time and money right away.
Step inside any organization, even a very successful one, and chances are good that you’ll find a lot of waste if you know where to look. From providing a feature that consumers don’t care about to doing an outstanding job on daily tasks that only require “good enough” performance, there are countless areas where resources simply go down the drain. In this book, Jeremy Eden and Terri Long have distilled 77 of their most effective techniques for generating real performance improvements drawn from their success working with major companies.
Too many business books are written in a dry tone and offer little practical advice. Low-Hanging Fruit is a breath of fresh air, thanks to the entertaining chapters that get right to the point.
If you think you don’t have the resources to be faster, better, and more profitable, think again. Whether you are a member of a small team or an executive of a multinational company, you will learn from Low-Hanging Fruit how to identify and solve hidden problems.
