More than a decade ago, The Gallup Organization combed through its database of more than one million employee and manager interviews to identify the elements most important in sustaining workplace excellence. These elements were revealed in the 1999 best-seller First, Break All the Rules. 12: The Elements of Great Managing is that management classic's long-awaited sequel.

Former general Stanley McChrystal held a key position for much of the War on Terror, as head of the Joint Special Operations Command. In Iraq he found that despite the vastly superior resources, manpower, and training of the US military, Al Qaeda had an advantage because of its structure as a loose network of small, independent cells. Those cells wreaked havoc by always staying one step ahead, sharing knowledge with each other via high-tech communications.

we have a small organization but we want to grow larger. This book helped me understand a little bit more about the path forward to Ward scaling up. My fears are always around losing control and the book helped me understand that I can't keep control. I also really enjoyed the storytelling aspect of all the ancient battles and War history.
