5.0 out of 5 stars This is the official Afterburner handbook. 6 Jun. 2005
By S. Boyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you haven't had the opportunity to experience an Afterburner seminar yet, this book links you into their entire process top-down, from strategy to the flawless execution model to the people who carry out the mission. As head of Training for my organization, I was particularly interested in the section Murph dedicated to training. In the business world we don't place enough emphasis on the importance of training our people - in the military they never place someone in an environment they are not prepared to be in. Training seems to always get sacrificed because we're too busy carrying out tasks to get pulled away. Murph speaks on training to achieve a (specific) Desired Learning Objective, seeing how its done and then doing it - learning from experience. In the corporate world there is much we can learn from military processes. Flawless Execution is a process that can be applied to every business objective - its asks the questions: Did we plan right? Communicate to our people clearly? Give our people the tools they need to execute their job? And, did we capture lessons learned so we can sharpen the saw next time? It's a powerful tool we're applying in my organization with much success. I just hope our competitors don't read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pray this guy is never your competitor 13 May 2005
By John Gamble - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Frank, practical advice with a no nonsense approach...just like you'd expect from guys that operate in a space where coming in second isn't an option.

This is a no BS look at how to improve any organization's ability to kick the competition's butt. You won't find "theoretical" discussions from a group of "academics." No charts and graphs. No fancy formulas. Just dozens of ideas that anyone with a desire to improve can implement. The "debrief" section and advice Murph provides has literally changed the way we operate in our company.

Read it...and you'll understand why the USAF is the best in the world. More importantly, you'll see how their training methods can make you better. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Increase efficiency and Improve effectiveness through Flawless Execution Process 24 Sept. 2015
By Chris R. Stricklin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A true leader realizes any great organization is built around extraordinary individuals. US Air Force Fighter Pilots epitomize clear processes as they fly high-G, supersonic aircraft and refine their skills through trainable, learnable, repeatable processes. In a similar manner, clearly establishing processes for any organizations, from future vision through debrief, accelerates learning and increases experience. The concept of Flawless Execution presented in these pages explains the key is not in the pursuit of perfection; rather it is the pursuit of a method of operation that, when done correctly, can be replicated by the organization. As Fighter Pilots, our training does not give us answers; it teaches us ways to find answers. We are given processes, patterns, and ways to think things through so we can come up with our own answers in a world of partial information, half-intelligence and compressed timelines. This same Plan-Brief-Execute-Debrief-WIn process can be used in every organization to increase efficiency and improve effectiveness.
