Discussing how Whole Foods, Google and Gore are leading the management revolution was very inspirational. Hamel discusses in detail how these companies engage in what may seem unorthodox to traditional minded corporate folk. The book makes you think, how can I bring about management innovation at my company, and that's the idea behind the book. In this way the book delivers perfectly. However inspiration doesn't always translate into action. For the listener its difficult to put the lessons learned from this book into action. This book would serve an executive well, someone who has the authority and the ability to affect change at a governance level. If you're a mid level manager who is disillusioned with your company's management style and structure, you'll only be inspired to go work for Whole Foods, Google, or Gore.
I liked the book and anyone who is inspired by it will incorporate some of its principles when they go on to become executives. I enjoyed it.
