Doing More With Less


Benjamin Franklin instinctively knew what so many of us have forgotten: Frugality and industriousness are the ways to wealth. After the last set of business scandals and financial busts, many powerful interests, from governments to multinational corporations, are exploring how to do more with less. Businesses and individuals are seeking a realignment of frugality and prosperity in hopes of regaining their balance and securing their futures.

Doing More with Less dives into our primal competitive instinct, which embraces frugality as a crucial competitive edge. Author Bruce Piasecki convincingly explains the case for a return to frugality, providing relevant examples from his 30 years of experience as a management consultant and change agent. Liberate more of your resources by realigning money, people, and rules in your life, your family, and your firm. Doing More with Less is an actionable call to arms, with global insights—applicable to professionals in any industry—that will make you more adept in the short run and adaptive in the long run.

When you establish principles of frugality in your life and at your firm, you’ll receive abundant recompense with less debt and risk. Through frugality, we recognize obligations beyond our own needs and in turn capture greater returns for ourselves, our families, and our firms. Let it be your mantra: Doing More with Less is success. It is time to rediscover that primary frugality and create a better tomorrow for ourselves and for the world.
