Local best-selling author publishes second business mystery
Britt, a principal in the accounting firm of Mountjoy Chilton Medley LLP, wrote the latest book with co-author Michael Mountjoy, the firm’s co-managing partner.
In this witty whodunit, Accountability is arrested and accused of involuntary manslaughter in the killing of Change. During the trial, readers learn why Urgency is late, Commitment is missing, Vision is blindsided, Communication goes silent and Performance falls. A surprise witness sheds light on the crime, and the judge has an important decision to make.
Although the style is breezy and fun, the book has an important message, Mountjoy said. “Organizations that increase accountability decrease employee frustration and stay on the path to increased profitability.” he said.
At the conclusion of the story, the book offers a model for organizational accountability, along with a case study and a personal and organizational self-assessment, to help organizations achieve greater accountability.
“Who Pardoned Accountability? How to ‘Unleash’ Accountability in Your Organization” is written in the same business parable style as “Who Killed Change”, which Britt co-authored with Ken Blanchard, author of “The One-Minute Manager.”
“Who Killed Change” has had publication rights sold in 16 languages and won the gold medal in 2009 for best “business fable” in the third annual Axiom Business Book Awards.
