Another List

By Porchlight

Rebecca pointed us all to Amazon's Best Books of 2007 last month, and in light of all the other lists coming out lately, I thought it'd be a good idea to revisit that list and highlight the business titles on it. There were three business categories--Business, Business Narratives, and Finance & Investing. So without further ado, the choice of Amazon's editors were. READ FULL DESCRIPTION

I cannot imagine why I have not posted this before - I am greatly ashamed at myself for allowing almost a WHOLE month go by without any of you knowing what people across seas, valleys, mountains and portages were reading in July!  I guess it could be because I've been so busy this summer - going to the various Festivals in Milwaukee, seeing Rufus Wainwright in concert, visiting family and friends in neighboring Green Bay and Madison. .

Big-Hearted Business Books

By Sally Haldorson

In Gary Hamel's new book, What Matters Now (which we are giving away this week on inBubbleWrap! ), he encourages leaders to define a mission that "embodies the values of trust, generosity, and forebearance" no matter how "radical and weird" it seems. But he even goes further and suggests you bring love into the equation. READ FULL DESCRIPTION

Full Description

What fuels long-term business success? Not operational excellence, technology breakthroughs, or new business models, but management innovation--new ways of mobilizing talent, allocating resources, and formulating strategies. Through history, management innovation has enabled companies to cross new performance thresholds and build enduring advantages. In The Future of Management, Gary Hamel argues that organizations need management innovation now more than ever. Why? The management paradigm of the last century--centered on control and efficiency--no longer suffices in a world where adaptability and creativity drive business success. To thrive in the future, companies must reinvent management. Hamel explains how to turn your company into a serial management innovator, revealing: The make-or-break challenges that will determine competitive success in an age of relentless, head-snapping change.
The toxic effects of traditional management beliefs.
The unconventional management practices generating breakthrough results in "modern management pioneers."
The radical principles that will need to become part of every company's "management DNA."
The steps your company can take now to build your "management advantage." Practical and profound, The Future of Management features examples from Google, W.L. Gore, Whole Foods, IBM, Samsung, Best Buy, and other blue-ribbon management innovators.
