Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this incisive and practical book, Tom McGehee reveals techniques he developed in Ernst and Young's Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE) to help companies achieve radical innovation. Whoosh presents groundbreaking formulas to bring about sweeping adjustments in business, and guides organizations to jettison deadwood ideals in favor of a focus on the cutting edge. It offers a blueprint for a better type of organization-called a Creation Company-that generates ideas by the truckload. Creation Companies do not hesitate to abandon the industrial age artifacts-best practices, mission statements, policy manuals, etc.-that place false barriers between people and achievement. Whoosh will lead companies, and the individuals within them, to strive for and ultimately achieve the state of Whoosh that will transform the workplace right before their eyes.

Book News Annotation:

McGehee has written a well-organized and clearly focused book for business leaders on the concept of collaboration as a new model for corporate work. Using examples, he describes the creativity that can come from breaking out of routines, both of schedule, and of thinking, and learning to work collaboratively. This new thinking is contrasted with the old business mindset that stressed individuality and competition.
