Mastering Leadership Alignment:
Linking Value Creation to Cash Flow
By Vanguard Resource Group Experts
Jahn Ballard and Andrew Bargerstock
Authors Jahn Ballard and Andrew Bargertsock reveal the CashCommand™ methodology through 10 specific real-world client cases from 2001-12 with the prime case study at Maryland Association of CPAs.
The MACPA case reveals how a few focused activity and cash measures unite into a whole system with a prioritized map that makes sense to everyone because it clearly reveals the totality of the relevant facts of financial transactions and activity transactions in any given period.
How To Get The Most Out Of This Book
We have written this book primarily for four groups of business professionals:
senior leaders motivated to guide their core team toward unanimity and beyond
trusted advisors to senior leaders and their direct reports
facilitators who work with senior leaders on change management initiatives, and
any student of business who is building competencies for the day they will participate in senior leadership activities.
The seven assumptions that shape how we go about aligning senior teams to move their enterprise toward greater levels of adept business execution open this outline. We then summarize each chapter. Finally, we include key sources informing the evolution of each of those Seven Assumptions.
This book conveys a powerful story and method for guiding Senior Leadership to dramatically improving organizational results. We refer to this method as Ballard's Alignment and Reporting Disciplines (BARD).
