As organizations grow in volume and complexity, the demands on leadership change. The same old moves won't cut it any more. In Chess Not Checkers, Mark Miller tells the story of Blake Brown, newly appointed CEO of a company troubled by poor performance and low morale. Nothing Blake learned from his previous roles seems to help him deal with the issues he now faces. The problem, his new mentor points out, is Blake is playing the wrong game. The early days of an organization are like checkers: a quickly played game with mostly interchangeable pieces. Everybody, the leader included, does a little bit of everything; the pace is frenetic. But as the organization expands, you can't just keep jumping from activity to activity. You have to think strategically, plan ahead, and leverage every employee's specific talents--that's chess. Leaders who continue to play checkers when the name of the game is chess lose. On his journey, Blake learns four essential strategies from the game of chess that transform his leadership and his organization. The result: unprecedented performance!… (mais)

I won this book in the FirstReads program of GoodReads. The opinions I share are my own :)

I'm torn about how to rate this book. The text offers good, useful frameworks for leading any organization. The text is also takes a long time to get to the point, and repeats the point a whole lot. Once I finished reading, I filled a couple pages with thoughts about how to apply these lessons to my own job, which helped make up for wading through the writing.

I'm both glad that I read this, and glad that I didn't pay for it. ( )

I received a free copy of this book from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review. This book arrived quickly and in good condition.

The best thing about this book is the fact that he has combined know how with a story. Although some of the characters will not keep you guessing there isn't anyone who will read this book and not come away with some new valuable piece of insight. This is a quick read with much information to be had. ( )

In Chess not Checkers: Elevate Your Leadership Game, Mark Miller, co-author of The Secret: What Great Leaders Know and Do, uses the metaphor of chess and checkers to demonstrate the shift in leadership style needed to manage as an organization grows in size and complexity. Through a simplified case study and a book easily read in one sitting, the author illustrates a clear management vision.

Leading has never been easy. From our first experiment trying to get our classmates to follow us or receiving our first official assignment at work, leadership has always demanded our best effort. That hasn’t changed—but something else has: the complexity of the problems we face and the organizations we lead has increased exponentially.
