Роман Шатерник
Крутая теория жизненного цикла компании. Можно анализировать, смотреть нормальные, аномальные и паталогические проблемы, а также искать способы их разруливания. Но довольно сложный язык. И в конце малость перебор про привязку концепции к библии и мирозданию :)

Exellent structure of the book, the system is so exciting as physical formulas describing how the Universe runs, in so short words, so clear as a poetry, with crystal logic and lively examples. My pleasure during reading could be compare only with understanding how the system works.
With best to author!
I never thought I could rave about a business management book, but this one is really good and explains so well so much of what I've observed about organisations. It's well-researched, practical, insightful, realistic, and a really useful tool for building healthy, growing organisations.
So realistic management book with a good system view to organization that discribe corporates in diffrent stage and shows how to act in that stage
Josh Allan Dykstra
Insightful and organic perspective on organizations. Drifts into technical profile-speak in second half in regards to the Adizes method.
