About the book
In The Challenge Culture, Nigel Travis uses his experience of working for over forty years in several very large companies (Blockbuster, Burger King, Papa John's) to show how organisations succeed by fostering a culture in which everyone can contribute. And, using examples such as Blockbuster and Leyton Orient Football Club, what happens when they don't... Travis, who has been Chairman and CEO of Dunkin' Brands for almost a decade, explains why businesses need to be more flexible, more egalitarian, and more able to adapt. To do this they must embrace challenge and encourage pushback, rather than reject them. How else will you hear new ideas and improve existing practices? This book will define what a challenge culture is (and what it isn't), provide ideas and insights about how to create one, and describe the benefits it brings -- in terms of performance, improvement, and fulfilment -- to individuals, companies and even to society as a whole.

Read Review   Want to write a review?
Nigel's career, vision and humanity are very refreshing.
Dissent is not disloyalty but can be the spark for innovation and the safeguard for integrity. ... Conformity kills creativity and subverts justice and The Challenge Culture is the antidote to a contagion of conformity across sectors.'
Business and politics have become ever more competitive and unpredictable. In order to succeed in this environment, Travis introduces The Challenge Culture where employees are encouraged and are sufficiently self-confident to push back, engage in debate and along with their leaders search intensively for the best answer to critical issues. A must read for all people leading organizations in these turbulent times!'
The world is filled with CEOs who major in one or two parts of their enterprise, but minor in none. Nigel understands the intricacies of everything. And even better, he knows how to put them together to make a business run the way it should. This book not only takes you inside his businesses, but inside the mind that challenged them to thrive. If you can use 20% of what he's suggesting, you'll be ahead of the game. Use 40% and you can blow the doors off.'
Nigel Travis shares his insight on the importance of creating a challenge culture, one that questions the status quo, encourages internal pushback and helps companies be nimble enough to adapt to change. The Challenge Culture is a must read for employers and employees alike, and promises to get ideas for long-term success percolating.
Women, especially young women, in today's world need to understand the importance of challenging authority and speaking up to share their point of view. The Challenge Culture brilliantly explains how to do it.
Nigel Travis has hit the nail on the head. Collective brilliance can only come from challenge and he proves this throughout his own leadership journey. Entertaining, edifying and exactly right.'
'The insights of The Challenge Culture provide a powerful playbook for people across the business world.'
Smart and insightful, this work offers an insider's account of the leadership approach behind a successful global brand that executives in any industry can emulate.'
