    Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

    Story

    This book contains a valuable concept, and the writer manage to bring the message in a clear and concise way. I really enjoyed the book and I am already applying the princi[les in my company. It will take time to instill this philosophy in the workplace, but it is very important. I highly recommend this book.

    Jack Welch lifted GE from a conglomerate with a market value of about $12 billion to one of the world's largest and most widely-admired companies, with a market value of more than $500 billion. In Jack, the author reveals the strategies and philosophies that put him at the top.

    Overall

    This recollection of facts, figures and thought processes are inspiring, even for me who is not really interested in GE as a company. Jack's leadership style is practical, simple and very effective. I made notes as I listened and I am sucessfully applying many of his ideas in my business.

    How can your organization increase its agility, alignment, and accountability to improve performance? Developing performance management capabilities means changing the way people are empowered to make better decisions. It requires a transition from a restrictive, command-and-control approach to a management style that includes more participants in the performance-management process.

    Engelbrecht says: "Theoretical"
    "Theoretical"
    Overall

    The book is an exercise in the theory of business performance. The technical approach to the theory has little value for an experienced manager. I found the book boring and not practical at all.
