Reviews - What do customers think about Minister's MBA?

Every good idea eventually boils down to hard work  Jan 24, 2007
Erwin McManus said, "There comes a time when you have to stop being full of potential and be potent."
In my experience (I'm pretty young - 38) but I've noticed that stuff just doesn't happen. Annointing, you must have. Submission to his leading - what else? Prayer - much prayer - without a doubt. But pencil to paper. A lot of talking with your voluntter staff. Dreaming. Critical thinking. Arguing. Sacrificing and driving for a mission. Living for people beyond your generation ...
The Minister's MBA has been an awesome catalyst for spiritual growth of a different kind for me.
IF you are more vision than manager; IF you are great in ideas, but short on practicality; IF you need a "legend" for the map ... get this book.
 
Strategic Excellence in a Book  Nov 28, 2006
Drs. Babbes and Zigarelli's text is a wonderful read and an excellent source of information for strategists. It was written for ministers but the content is useful for any organization be it profit, non-profit, military, or education. The language is understandable and easy to follow. Yet, the information is substantial for any person seeking to make their organization a strategically better one. Each "semester" build on the other so the reader can master the strategic points all the way to "graduation." This is truly a worthwhile read.
 
It's Not an M.B.A. for Dummies, It's a Toolbox for Ministry Success  Nov 2, 2006
Most of my colleagues are long past the so-called divide between sacred and secular (which is not biblical), especially as it relates to ensuring effectiveness in ministry. Should churches use "Madison Avenue" techniques to "market" to their communities? The book quotes A.W. Tozer, "It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it. The motive is everything."

The Minister's MBA is long overdue. The book features 12 "courses" (chapters) including: your mission, creating a high performance DNA, retaining great people, leading with shrewd stewardship, and how to use the balanced scorecard for measuring strategy.

The "Strategy Map" chapter is excellent and every pastor, staff member and key church volunteer must read it. You'll learn how to get beyond lagging indicators (past performance) and onto leading indicators like member satisfaction (where you're headed).

After reading this, I have a suggestion for pastors. Every Sunday afternoon, email 100 church members (a different group each week) and ask them to complete an anonymous three-minute online feedback survey about the service, the sermon and their faith journey. SurveyMonkey.com is an easy and excellent online survey tool to use for this.
