Billions of dollars are spent every year by businesses on initiatives to help their people succeed and perform in their jobs, but much of it goes to waste. In her new book, Radical Outcomes, author Juliana Stancampiano has plumbed the depths of this massive disconnect and bridges the gap. She looks at why across a range of business sectors, companies are scrambling to launch new initiatives to help employees to grow and improve at work, but are left wondering why these initiatives aren’t effective.
Radical Outcomes is a blueprint for a new way of working. Instead of taking old methods and retrofitting them for new technology, author Juliana Stancampiano unveils a collaborative, fast, and effective way of working that avoids randomness and organizational drag. The book offers a new way of working, the future of the way people and teams will work together. It helps readers to find out how to get tangible results through a structured process; to cut through noise and information overload to give people what they really need; to design the right output for the right outcome; and to improve and succeed no matter where they are in the organization.
Juliana shows you how to create radical outcomes through high performing teams, and how importantly to just get started on this new approach. In today's fast-paced business environment, successful businesses must adapt to an ever-evolving world—or face extinction. Technology is everywhere at work, and impacts everything from processes and workflow, to communication and collaboration between employees, customers, and suppliers. Radical Outcomes offers a guide for developing the type of extraordinary teams that can skillfully navigate our complex, connected business environment, and produce radical results. Juliana’s proposed process puts the focus on business outcomes instead of random things, in a way that's collaborative, fast, and fun. She provides a practical roadmap for creating simple, engaging, and effective outputs that add value to a business. The book's lessons, process, and principles are explored through a composite customer story about a team that generates radically productive results through a new way of working. By weaving the narrative together with explanations and descriptions in each chapter, Juliana explores the different aspects of collaboration, teaming and alignment that are needed to meet the business outcomes of our modern, agile workplace. Ultimately we learn that the radical outcomes that are commonplace for the world's most successful companies are human, creative, and simple—and entirely within your reach.
To keep up with customers, many business leaders have recognized that just having great products isn't enough. They must also create great experiences for their customers. And they must do it by leveraging the increasingly complex technology landscape that has become part of life.
I believe that people inherently show up to work wanting to have an impact and be successful.
In our complex environment, where change is constant and the bar is continuously rising, I believe that the expectations on the people who do the actual work is high, and there is an overwhelming amount of noise they have to navigate in order to find that success.
I am passionate about unburdening people so that they can make progress, do their job and create success for themselves and the company they work for.
