Bestselling author Kim Cameron delivers both a riveting story and a thoroughly researched case study that delves into the spectacularly impossible success of the shutdown and clean-up of Rocky Flats, one of the most notorious nuclear weapons plants in the United States. As the most contaminated nuclear plant in the USA the site was home to notorious environmental disasters and worker unrest. The government estimated that it would take 70 years and $36 billion dollars to clean up and close the facility. Instead, the site has witnessed the most remarkable performance of any organisation in history. It will be cleaned up to 13 times better-than-federal-standards and turned into a wildlife refuge 60 years ahead of schedule and $30 billion dollars under budget. The book concludes by exposing ten culminating and concise leadership principles responsible for the remarkable success at Rocky Flats.
