By John A. Murphy
This book really brings you back to basics in terms of your integrity in dealing with others - and yourself. We so often forget how frustrating it is to deal with people who make commitments, or who say they are commitments, but since there is no clarity about what specifically is going to be done and by when, then there is no clarity, there is no commitment at all. Should be read by everyone - and I don't care if your position is Chief Executive or Chief Washer of the Bathroom, it applies to both roles!

Commitment Based Management - 101 - Outstanding
I practice Commitment Based Management in my consulting work. I wish I had this book when I started learning CMB. It is a fantastic piece of work. One of the best business books I've read in years.

Simple and Valuable Message
By K. Scott Proctor
"Who Will do What by When?" conveys a simple and valuable message. That message is to lead, manage and act in a manner that addresses the question that is the title of the book itself ("who will do what by when?"). Tom Hanson and Birgit Zacher Hanson do a good job of wrapping a story around this central message in the style of authors such as Patrick Lencioni.
While the book offers a holistic system for improving performance, accountability and trust, I found the central message of the book stands well all on its own. The storyline, while not as powerful or engrossing as those found in Lencioni's books, such as "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable," does add a lot to the message.
