‘Leaky Bucket’ puts years of reading business books, attending conferences and seminars all into one comprehensive, easy to read, and everyone can relate book. Howard Shore’s approach is simple and straightforward: people, strategy, and execution.

Howard’s book is immensely practical and filed with excellent advice. For disciples of the Scaling Up methodology, this book is a field guide that you may find less overwhelming from an implementation perspective. This is not to say that the concepts are any less robust than those found in Scaling Up. I particularly appreciate the summary provided at the end of each chapter that concisely articulates the key take-always from each chapter.

Rick Crossland

I read a lot of good business books. This one is exceptional in its “on the money” advice. It will help any business plug their profit leaks so you can soar. Howard Shore provides world-class recommendations and his sage advice should make any self-conscious business leader cringe at the profits they are leaving on the table. The good news is that he lays out crystal clear plans that you can immediately implement to improve your business.

‘Leaky Bucket’ describes the sources of leaks that cause underachievement and explains how to plug those leaks. He also provides downloadable tools to help put his advice into practice. I don’t know of a company that would not benefit from applying Howard’s advice.
