    Story

    I have read many books on the topic of the future of management. My most common complaint is that they get so carried away with their concepts that they take them to unrealistic levels. Hamel/Breen too did this somewhat, but they backed up their ideas with history on the topics and didn't 'leap' too far. They have an uncanny understanding of the forces that actually drive business in my opinion.

    They make the point that technology and methodology are exploding but management hasn't really changed for decades; how very true. They get it that we could do things a whole lot more effectively using new management methods and offer many ideas that are exceptionally good and insightful.

    Indeed, there are a few companies out there trying better ways, but I do mean few. Hamel/Breen believe that we will eventually have to switch. Will we? I'm not so sure. Human beings are loathe to change, especially if they are comfortable. From my perspective the only thing that will bring change is monetary necessity; if my competition is doing it and being more successful then so must I. I hope they are right.

    From my perspective, this is a must-read book. Enjoy.
