Fewer than half of employees, according to a quoted poll, understand their company's strategic goals and only 43% think there is ever any follow-through on planned strategy shifts.

I've been there and it is not a fun fate.Beware of zombiesThe . Jeff Bennett said Good information and some great stories. Torn between three and four stars but this was rated all five stars and for me it just didn't rate there. While there is solid information it seems like this is more two consultants marketing their company that a useful guide. Nothing wrong with that and it is a good strategy, but for me it was a bit labored due to that feel.I nodded my head a lot but didn't take a lot away that I felt like was unique. I enjoyed the anecdotes most and I am sure that for many this would read like a thriller, just not me.
