Must read for all BBA/MBA students. It gave me nice insights into Ikea. Lectures by Dahlvig related to this book can be found on YouTube. I sometimes use examples from the book and part of the lectures in my classes.

I think I've become spoiled by all of the entertainingly written business books available, because this book is packed with actionable advice backed up by Dahlvig's ten years of experience as CEO of Ikea, but I was a little relieved when it was over. I didn't find his style very engaging, hence the four stars, but again, there is a wealth of rock solid information presented in a very pragmatic way, so it's well worth the read.

Not a read-as-you go book, the author makes it goes the direction of how Ikea operations and how its being affected and affect others. Very executive-technical
Lori Grant
A should-read autobiograpy on leadership for knowledge workers, managers, directors, C-levels, and entrepreneurs.
