There is no magic in this book, only practical management ideas that have been proven out in the real world. The author, Giles Johnston, works with businesses of all different sizes, in all different sectors, that are trying to achieve the same basic objectives. They want happier customers, better profits, easier working lives and a feeling of control back in their businesses. The methods outlined in Losing the Cape are designed to do just that.
Part one of the book gets you to look at how your business is fundamentally operating.
Part two takes you through a series of strategies and methods that you can apply to your business as you move away from a reliance on superhero cape wearing and into a more controlled process driven way of working.
You don’t need to crush creativity out of your business on the way to higher levels of control, but there are some things that you can do in order to get the best of both worlds.
