About the Book

The story of Captain D. Michael Abrashoff and his command of USS Benfold has become legendary inside and outside the Navy. In his book, Abrashoff offers a fascinating tale of top-down change for anyone trying to navigate today's uncertain business seas.

Some points for successful management include:

  • See the ship through the eyes of the crew: By soliciting a sailor's suggestions, Abrashoff drastically reduced tedious chores that provided little additional value.
  • Communicate, communicate, communicate: The more Abrashoff communicated the plan, the better the crew's performance.
  • Create discipline by focusing on purpose: Discipline skyrocketed when Abrashoff's crew believed that what they were doing was important.
