“…Preventing Strategic Gridlock® is a recommended read for anyone experiencing gridlock in their organization or who wants to understand gridlock from the root causes to the moving beyond it.”
—Midwest Book Review / Readers Preference Reviews
“…Preventing Strategic Gridlock® is a refreshing change from the standard business book that bombards leaders today. Harper never admonishes leaders for falling into any of the roadblock traps nor does she urge them to change into something they are not. She offers real-world advice and solutions to guide leaders back to a path from which they can achieve the performance and results they desire.”
— Business Strategies Magazine
“Have you ever been left scratching your head why something isn’t working out despite your best intentions? Then Preventing Strategic Gridlock® is the book for you. Pamela Harper walks you through a variety of possible downfalls and looks at why they may have happened and how you can identify the warning signs.”
“Preventing Strategic Gridlock® by Pamela S. Harper is a great little soft cover filled with excellent advice on how to spot challenges that stall business strategies. This is about taking real control of a company’s business agenda. It is filled with checklists, frequently asked questions, and try-it-out scenarios, and it delivers what it promises.”
“In her book, Pamela Harper discusses the reasons why ideas that may have seemed great at the start fail due to organizational problems. She goes to great detail on how leaders can achieve the results they seek while avoiding the gridlock. Today’s upper level leaders will find the book insightful as a guide to future strategic planning.”
— CEO GO / Burson Marsteller
“…Harper’s very mindful process will help you identify the ‘hidden roadblocks’ and avoid the ‘disconnects’ so that your organization has the best chance of achieving the level of high performance demanded today.”
— CEO Refresher
“Highly recommended for managers who want to stop firefighting, or have change fatigue and feel they don’t have any practical ideas for doing things differently. The text is well-aimed and succinct and includes some quizzes, checklists and process flows for extra guidance and other stimuli which will appeal to the more visually inclined business unit/project manager. This book clearly identifies problems in organizations and provides highly targeted solutions. Practical and incisive, this is not a book to leave gathering dust on the shelf”
