Con-sis-ten-cyn1:degree of firmness or resistance to movement2:measure of harmony, regularity or steady continuity3:harmony of conduct or practice with the planIs the frustration of executing consistent business plans becoming a burden? Whether you're the manager of a small company or the CEO of a large public firm, author Mark Turner provides real techniques and solutions to help identify and eliminate what he callsThe Consistency Gap.The Consistency Gapfocuses on two key elements that have the power to unravel all the devotion and dedication in any enterprise: information and tolerance. Turner discusses how the gap between the planning stage and the execution of that plan has the potential to cause an entire project to fail.The Consistency Gapdemonstrates how this gap can be bridged, reduced, or even removed with a structured and workable plan.Through the use of fascinating imagery including circuit breakers and fuses, Turner forces readers to look at their own personal "fuse ratings" in two critical areas. It quickly becomes obvious that there is more to success than a great plan and the means to execute it.The Consistency Gapprovides a unique outline for setting goals, deciding how to achieve those goals, and how to be successful every time.
