Organizations, institutions, and individuals get stuck in spite of their innovative ideas and ambitious agendas. Never has the timing been better for a book that cuts through the theoretical jargon and delineates the exact political and managerial skills leaders need to move agendas forward. Whether you're a team leader trying to lead change and innovation in a large corporation, an entrepreneur trying to gain support, a politician trying to expand your coalition, or an individual trying to advance your career and build networks, The Agenda Mover will give you the political and managerial leadership skills necessary to achieve results. Based on the premise that leadership competencies and skills can be learned, The Agenda Mover is the inaugural volume of the practitioner-oriented Pragmatic Leadership Series published in association with Cornell University Press. Each volume emphasizes specific skills of execution that leaders at all levels need to master. Visit pragmaticleadershipseries.com to learn more about the series.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Innovation and ideation are both very popular given the current business climate, but these alone are insufficient without pairing them with the ability to work great ideas through the maze of the organization. The Agenda Mover uniquely focuses on the critical skills of execution to unleash these great ideas. If you really want your organization to become more innovative, you need to read this book to ensure you can transform the innovative ideas into action plans that will change your organization."

-- Andy Doyle, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Oppenheimer Funds

"Professor Bacharach takes the abstract concept of leadership and provides a practical guide to producing results in the modern organization. The Agenda Mover clearly explains how the combination of technical competence and political acumen can be used to make a great idea reality. This is a must-read for every executive."

-- Rob Manfred, Commissioner of Major League Baseball

"We encounter a lot of leadership experts at Inc., but no one cuts through the hoo-haw surrounding the topic as brilliantly-or as entertainingly-as Sam. Readers of The Agenda Mover come away realizing that the core of leadership isn't the 'vision thing' or the `charisma thing.' It's the execution thing. Leaders who follow Sam's precepts don't waste time on flash. Instead they acquire that one essential but all-too-rare attribute of effective leadership: They get things done."

-- Eric Schurenberg, President and Editor-in-Chief, Inc. Media
