Recommended to K.D. by: boss of my boss
Shelves: business, non-fiction
This is a required book to read for all the managers up in the company I am currently working for: Emerson.

There is a danger of being dismissed if I say anything bad about the book or if I rate this lower than 5 stars so please bear with me. No, I am just kidding.

But the boss of my boss has been reminding us to read this book every meeting and I said to myself: if I could read 23 books a month or 250 books a year, why not squeeze this business book in?

I am glad, I did just that. This book, Perfo

It's an interesting book, but once it just became, "so, we realized that we needed to improve this, so we just bought this company..." it became less useful to me. Some good points about planning, but not every organization can just buy the companies that will help them improve.

How Chuck Knight, CEO of Emerson consistently achieves results.

This reads more like a textbook, and misses catching the charisma and inspiration of the man who ran the company.

Just happy I never got my MBA. I am not into ameliorating the CAGR (Cumulative Annual Growth Rate.) over the ROTC (Return over Total Capital). I'd just rather write code.
