In partnership with the University of Utah, Done Right will be offered in new Work Leadership Bootcamp programs for students at the Eccles School of Business.

Serving as a professional field map, Done Right lays out the path of modern work, from the early planning stages to completion. The book includes:

  • Insight from more than 30 corporate leaders, along with proven leadership recommendations built on Workfront's experience with over 3,000 industry-leading companies.
  • Tips for every step in modern work leadership, from motivating teams and keeping people engaged, to dealing with unexpected obstacles, setting goals, and measuring success and productivity.
  • Worksheets at the conclusion of every chapter so readers can put Done Right approaches to work in their own organizations.

Along with the publication of Done Right, Workfront is developing cutting edge Leadership learning experiences in partnership with the University of Utah's David Eccles School of Business. The new programming will help leaders develop the skills, capabilities, and behaviors to empower their teams and get stuff done in an era of modern work. While the multi-day bootcamp will initially be offered to select executive and professional MBA students, Workfront will be collaborating with the Goff Strategic Leadership Center and Eccles faculty to deploy the program more broadly. The Done Right Leadership program is expected to launch its first class early in 2019.

Alex Shootman, president and CEO of Workfront, commented:

"During my time at Workfront, I have seen firsthand the incredible successes of business leaders who use technology to embrace modern work, helping their people and their companies thrive. It is their insight and experience that informs this book, providing a guide for this new generation of leaders as they turn their ambitions into meaningful work."

Ray "R" Wang, CEO of Constellation Research, said:

"Done Right is an invaluable tool to those who strive to be leaders in the future of work. It goes well past the typical feel-good executive leadership mantras, providing a clear and actionable path for leaders ready to have a positive impact on their people, their companies, and their own careers."
