After having seen the execution and de-brief portions presented at an Afterburner seminar at work, I was curious to know about the other concepts: the brief, culture (motherhood), etc. It's delivered with similar energy and clarity. He makes valuable points and shares the types of interesting stories you'd expect along the way. I've used the rankless de-brief successfully with project groups and recommend trying this method. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060988290, Paperback)

Business today is faster and fiercer than ever, and who knows more about speed and fury than an F-15 fighter pilot! In this remarkable book based on his highly successful Afterburner business seminars, James D. Murphy - a veteran of the business world as well as the air force - offers a line-up of top-gun, proven business strategies based on the survival skills and performance tactics of fighter-pilot training programs. With emphasis on task management, teamwork, and mutual support, Murphy shows how the ability to assess risk, prioritise, and overcome challenges is increasingly important in the warlike, high-tech world of contemporary business. Murphy's Afterburner Seminars have assisted top executives at many well-known corporations, including IBM, PepsiCo, and Home Depot.
