As a business owner or manager, the world keeps changing faster than most people can keep up with it. The challenge is to find a way to build your business so that it can beat that pace and gain from it while your competitors wallow far behind.
Author, Gary Brose, has owned, purchased or started over two dozen companies in the last forty years. During that time he's seen computers, fax machines, the internet, and social media change everything in his labor-intensive businesses. He experimented with all sorts of strategies to build his organizations so that they would be more nimble and able to deal with significant, sometimes massive change to keep pace with the new reality. He developed management strategies and techniques that help to create a more motivated and engaged workforce to adapt faster and more effectively. Now, for the first time, he is sharing what he's learned in Express Exec.
