Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Jim Kilts is a proven wizard at making companies run. --Wall Street Journal
--Jack WelchJack Welch, LLC
Doing What Matters is an insightful and practical approach to business by a transformative leader with a great track record of success."
Jim Kilts transformed Gillette. Before his arrival, the company was a study in self-deception. Great brands were being mishandled, operational and financial discipline was non-existent and fanciful promises to investors were standard practice. In record time, Jim excised these business pathogens. I've learned much from Jim. So, too, will readers of this book. Warren E. Buffett
