Publisher's Summary

Throughout the 20th century, technology and economics drove a dominant logic: bigger was almost always better. It was smart to scale up - to take advantage of classic economies of scale. But in the unscaled economy, size and scale have become a liability. 

Today's most successful companies - Uber, Airbnb, Amazon, Salesforce - have defied the traditional 'economies of scale' approach by renting scale instead of spending vast amounts of money building it. And a new generation of upstarts is using artificial intelligence to automate tasks that once required expensive investment, enabling them to grow big without the bloat of giant organisations. 

In Unscaled, Hemant Taneja convincingly shows how the unscaled economy is remaking massive, deeply rooted industries and opening up fantastic possibilities for entrepreneurs, imaginative companies and resourceful individuals. Beyond that, it can be the model for solving some of the world's greatest problems, including climate change and soaring health-care costs, potentially reversing many of the ills brought on by mass industrialization. 

The unscale wave has only just started. To succeed in business today, companies, CEOs and leaders everywhere must unlearn what they have been taught - they must embrace an unscaled mind-set.

Just Found The Narrator Dull

I enjoyed the content in the main but the tone of the narrator left me cold and uninspired. Im reviewing this way too late so cant comment on content but it was very informative especially whats happening in the medical world. Worth a read , not a listen .
