Jason Jennings spent eighteen months traveling the globe, researching and discovering the “fastest” companies in the world for his book, It’s Not The Big That Eat The Small – It’s The Fast That Eat The Slow. Within weeks of its release, it hit the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and New York Times Bestseller Lists. Published in 32 languages, USA Today named it one of the top 25 books of the year! Next, Jason Jennings and his research team identified the ten most productive organizations in the world after studying more than 40,000 companies worldwide. In his best-selling, Less Is More, the secrets of the world’s most productive companies are revealed. His latest, TheReinventors- How Extraordinary Companies Pursue Radical Continuous Change, which reveals the secrets of those leaders and organizations that have successfully reinvented and transformed themselves also became a best-seller.
Following several years of research, Jason Jennings published, Think BIG – Act Small, profiling the leadership of the only companies in the world to have grown both revenue and operating profits by ten percent or more annually for ten consecutive years. Like his previous books, it debuted on all the bestseller charts.
In his recent work, Hit The Ground Running: A Manual for New Leaders, Jason Jennings and his team searched for the new CEOs who had pulled off the most impressive transformations of this decade. He interviewed ten who, on average, had doubled revenues, doubled profit margins, and more than tripled earnings per share, at companies such as Staples, Goodrich, Humana, and J. M. Smucker. The result: ten new “golden rules” that can help leaders balance the short term and the long term, and the competing needs of shareholders, employees, customers, and the community.
