James M. Kerr is the Global Chair of the Culture Transformation Practice at N2Growth. He is a consultant, organizational behaviorist, lecturer and Inc. columnist. He specializes in strategic planning, corporate transformation and organizational redesign. For over 25 years, Jim has forged a different type of consulting practice – one that does its engagements “with” its clients, instead of “to” them.
Whether helping larger organizations, like The Home Depot re-imagine its store operations, or advising smaller firms, like Blum Shapiro open up new markets, Jim has a reputation of making a difference.
A recognized thought leader , Jim continues to provide cutting edge solutions to his clients through a strong dedication to research and study. The Executive Checklist is Jim’s fourth business strategy book. His others include: The IRM Imperative (Wiley and Sons, 1989), Inside RAD (McGraw-Hill, 1991), and The Best Practices Enterprise (J. Ross Publishing, 2006). All are testaments to his commitment to helping leaders improve the ways in which they guide and shape their organizations.
"If you really want to change an organization, you need to be very clear what outcomes you want. The Executive Checklist does this and is also a practical, accessible, and comprehensive handbook for doing business in the 21st century. Any manager who wants to thrive in 'the new normal' needs this on their bookshelf."

"James Kerr's The Executive Checklist will not only help you achieve your goals, but make getting there far easier and less stressful.
