You may have heard about the organization that employed people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.
There was an important job to do and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody would not do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
This book is not about that organization. Instead, it's about building or working in an organization where Everybody can succeed because Everybody has clear accountabilities, a manager who adds value, and the resources to do the job - an accountability-based organization.
