The book introduces a pragmatic outcome-focused approach to business process management. While major, forward-looking businesses will find much of value in Kirchmer’s thinking, management discipline is both applicable and powerful for smaller enterprises and non-profit organizations as well. I highly recommended this book as a guide for all organizational leaders.
