    Story

    "Good Strategy / Bad Strategy" was the most interesting book on strategy I have read so far. Cuts through the leadership consult fluff speak that use template strategy that leads no where to actionable steps that drive visions to values to goals to strategy. The key according to the author is to start by determining what is going on and then building strategy around that reality based on where the company wants to go. The author's discussion on company's with hundreds of supposed strategies leading to stagnation via divide and conquer was very interesting. The author backs up his concepts with real life examples from the class room, corporate world and military campaigns.

    Developing and implementing a strategy is the central task of a leader, whether the CEO at a Fortune 100 company, an entrepreneur, a church pastor, the head of a school, or a government official. Richard Rumelt argues that the heart of a good strategy is insight - into the true nature of the situation, into the hidden power in a situation, and into an appropriate response. He shows you how insight can be cultivated with a wide variety of tools for guiding your own thinking.

    Story

    Collins uses a similar comparison technique he used in his Built to Last, Good to Great, and How the Mighty Fall books however the focus is now comparison of companies during times of great turmoil. The discussion around how companies deal with good and bad luck and how the great companies are prepared ahead of time to gain from both good and bad luck was very eye opening idea. Very similar to the other books but still a very worthwhile read.

    A good summary of the fathers of strategy such as Ducker who lead to thinkers such as Porter and others. The big consulting agencies such as Boston Consulting Group, Mckenzie, Bayne and others built on the Strategy momentum by pulling in the top tier MBA programs high flyers to change how business is done. Kiechel does a great job of giving a good historical look at how the industry was built and how the cut throat high octane day in the life takes place.

    Imagine running a business without a strategy. It would be akin to driving blindfolded, to building a house without a blueprint. The concept of strategy changed all that, paving the way for the creation of the modern corporate world. The Lords of Strategy provides listeners with a deeper understanding of the world they compete in, and a sharper eye for what works — and what doesn’t — when forging strategy.

PHIL's greatest hits:
  • An Introductory Guide to Systems Thinking

    "Few surprises to anyone loosely familiar with this"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is, of course, quite short. Going in, I was not sure what level of sophistication this assumes in the listener; the answer is none. Mention is made of another forthcoming book which might be more interesting. It was pleasant and mildly thought-provoking at turns. I didn't think this added big value for me, inasmuch as any educated thinker who has exposure to any notions of biology, ecosystems or management, has probably heard or intuited much of this already. Hey, changing one component of a system affects other components, sometimes in ways unforeseen. Surprise, surprise.

  • Icarus in the Boardroom: The Fundamental Flaws in Corporate America and Where They Came From

    "A very fine business-legal history"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a favorite genre of mine (when well done): the large-canvas history of business firms, their structure and financing, their experiments and excesses, strengths and weaknesses (and key personalities) through the challenges of time and shifting environments. Here we follow the tendency of corporate leaders in various times to take high-flying "Icaran" risks, rolling the dice on the fortunes of their companies (and of the various stakeholders), for personal glory or riches or various other motives, mixing with counter-waves of regulation trying (in ways sometimes more enlightened or effective, sometimes less) to contain this behavior.
    Samuel Insull, for example, was a corporate empire-builder of the 1920s, taking the novel complex tiering of utility holding companies to new risk-laden heights, prior to the whole structure collapsing around his ears, and the arrival of New Deal legislation tying utilities' hands. Another surge in creativity emerges with the roaring 1980's, well described here with Michael Milken's innovations at center stage. Similar time is spent with Enron. Such events are woven well in this book into larger historical contexts. Whether the reader agrees with the authors' biases or not, there is plenty of factual content here to chew on. The book ends with the arrival of Sarbanes-Oxley, i.e., post-2000 but before the biggest runups of the subprime fiasco and 2008. I would like to see an update along these lines from the author, noting there is an audible book by him on 2010's Dodd-Frank legislation I rated highly.

  • Radically Simple Accounting: A Way out of the Dark and Into the Profit

    "Quirky, wandering, pleasant at moments"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is an odd book. I have listened to it in little bursts when listening to more structured and rigorous books has made me glaze over temporarily. It doesn't seem to be sure whether it is a self-help book, an instruction book, or a collection of little aphorisms trying to be funny about focus and motivational struggles with bookkeeping. (The author, in her odd vocalization style -- I keep wondering, is she asking me or telling me this? -- has said a few times this book is funny. Good thing she made that clear, because I wouldn't have noticed.) But it is so different from typical writing and narration, I have sort of enjoyed it, in short segments. What would I call it -- "edutainment?" I certainly wouldn't make it the basis of a class.

  • Dead on Arrival: How to Avoid the Legal Mistakes That Could Kill Your Start-Up

    "A good wake-up call for budding entrepreneurs"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Laypersons, faced with making decisions involving legal issues, often don't know what they are missing. The imagination cannot readily produce scenarios of situations not studied or otherwise imagined. Depending on previous background in this area, a listener might or might not understand all of this book, especially on the first pass, but it has huge usefulness in flagging issues and problems, and demonstrating some of the complexities that, if not dealt with prospectively, can jump up later and bite the entrepreneur (at a time perhaps too late to correct the problem short of litigation). There is little as disheartening as watching, for example, one's small business evaporate in a legal fight between its own people. One may wish not to start a business-legal "marriage" with such somber thoughts, but it is better to take time, get sophisticated, and iron things out at the earliest moment, than later. I think the author has done a useful service with this book. Merely grasping the innate complexities can affect how people approach their business ventures. And time spent self-educating about the issues makes for more economical interaction with a lawyer when that is needed. The price and my time invested here are well worth it, I think.

  • "Forever Changed My Thinking"

    13 of 14 helpful votes

    I think that Taleb is probably an S.O.B. and a nut....but his argument that the world (and our lives) is in reality ruled by unpredictable large-scale events (black swans) is intriguing and forcefully argued. Taleb's background is in quantitative trading...and while arrogant beyond belief his arguments seem hard to dismiss.

    Maverick thinker Nassim Nicholas Taleb had an illustrious career on Wall Street before turning his focus to his black swan theory. Not all swans are white, and not all events, no matter what the experts think, are predictable. Taleb shows that black swans, like 9/11, cannot be foreseen and have an immeasurable impact on the world.

    Why do only a few people get to say "I love my job?" It seems unfair that finding fulfillment at work is like winning a lottery; that only a few lucky ones get to feel valued by their organizations, to feel like they belong. Imagine a world where almost everyone wakes up inspired to go to work, feels trusted and valued during the day, then returns home feeling fulfilled. This is not a crazy, idealized notion. Today, in many successful organizations, great leaders are creating environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things.

By twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment, but was still broke, directionless, and working a mediocre day job she’d taken for the health insurance. It was there that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is the founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal, a $100 million plus online fashion retailer with more than 350 employees.

    Most personal and organizational problems are the result of a little-known phenomenon called "self-deception". We deceive ourselves into thinking we're doing the right thing for the right reason, but people won't follow a leader whose motives are selfish. The tricky thing is, we don't know that our motivation is flawed. This audiobook explains what self-deception is, how people get trapped in it, how it undermines relationships and organizational achievement, and - most importantly - the surprising way to solve it.

    If one takes the view that outsourcing is driven by a desire to reduce costs, by buying into a consistent set of scalable processes which are shared across a number of organisations, then it follows that none of these areas should (or could) be sources of unique competitive advantage.
