    Michael Porter’s groundbreaking ideas on competition and strategy have unfolded over three decades and are spread across a dauntingly long list of publications. Every manager can name individual pieces of his work - competitive advantage, the value chain, five forces - but no one, not even Porter himself, has put the entire puzzle together to reveal it as an integrated whole. This lucid, concise audiobook does just that. This book provides an engaging summary of Porter’s ideas and an invaluable synthesis of this important body of work....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already purchased 5 extra editions for colleagues and friends as a must read. This book greatly links strategy and the daily decisions we make on what to do.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Understanding Michael Porter?

    I never experienced strategy work to provide value - it has seemed more as management exercises than a roadmap for the organisation. I always felt that Lean, Process optimization etc. was overkill. Rather my focus has been on delivering value to customers with a pragmatic approach.
    This book - through a well communicated explanation of Porters strategy work - makes a compelling case for strategy work with its clear link between customer value, activities performed and company profitability. The concepts of Trade-off and fit are extremely powerful-
    A must read for anyone genuinely interested in understanding the links between company profitability, customer value and activities performed within the organisation.


    Have you listened to any of Erik Synnestvedt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I really dislike the narration.

    Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

    First of all - by far the best narration I've experienced. Thanks Tim Wheeler.
    The book offers a lot of valuable insights in an easily digestible format. Good case examples make it living and relevant. For my taste there are a few too many repetitions of the same key points various places in the book.

    This was a well structured review which gave a good overview. For the concepts to be operational I assume that you need to go to the original.
