Voting closes on December 26th on the Best and Worst in Accountability in 2014.

Vote today for the Best among five candidates and the Worst among five candidates. By voting, you have the opportunity to receive one of 10 signed copies of my new book, “Accountability,” named one of the best business books of 2014 by Soundview.

Here’s an example of a company where accountability is a support system for winners. As good as this example is, it wasn’t good enough to make the final cut for the Best and Worst in Accountability in 2014.

Gannett is best known for its USA Today property, though it also owns other media properties. In 2009, Gannett was loaded with debt, advertising revenue was down significantly and the stock had tanked. Gracia Martore became CEO in October 2011 and has transformed the business through a combination of savvy acquisitions, diversification and holding people accountable…starting with herself. In just two years, the company’s performance has made it one of the top 10 value creators for shareholder value in the S&P 500.
