Message from the author, Justin Hughes

"My aim in writing The Business of Excellence was to pull together all the learning I had acquired from 12 years as a fighter pilot and a further 13 years as a management consultant into one simple model which explains the drivers of high performance in a format that can be easily transferred to just about any other team or organisation.  Easy!  In principle…

Writing the book was undoubtedly a journey, spread over several years, and forced me to collate and structure my thinking at a new level.  When I finally handed over the manuscript, I thought my work was done, but then copy editing started - another new experience for me!  As someone who likes a certain precision in the written word (bordering on pedantic?), I met my match in a professional copy editor. 

After a few months of intellectual sparring though, The Business of Excellence went into production, and I have to admit to being rather pleased with the end result.  I hope you enjoy it and look forward to your feedback."
