James M. Kerr - The Executive Checklist

A Guide for Setting Direction and Managing Change

James M. Kerr, BlumShapiro,-TotalPicture Radio interviewJames M. Kerr

The Executive Checklist is a new book I recommend for all talent acquisition and HR managers and executives, written by James M. Kerr,  a partner at BlumShapiro Consulting in West Hartford, CT. Jim specializes in strategic planning, corporate transformation and project & program development.

Welcome to a Leadership Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio, this is Peter Clayton reporting. In the introduction to The Executive Checklist, Jim writes,"What better way to simplify the complex than to create a checklist? Checklists are a modest way to reduce failure, ensure consistency, and safeguard comprehensiveness." One thing you'll appreciate in reading the book: the author's insights and recommendations are based on real-world experiences with clients like IBM, The Home Depot, Zappos, and JP Morgan Chase.

The Executive Checklist includes ten items: Establish Leadership, Build Trust, Set Strategy, Engage Staff, Manage Work as Projects, Renovate the Business, Align Technology, Transform Staff, Renew Communications Practices, Reimagine Organizational Design.

In our conversation, we focus on Engage Staff, Align Technology, and Transform Staff.

The Executive Checklist is Jim's fourth business strategy book. Check the sidebar for links to his website and other resources.
