I'm reading this book because Rory Sutherland (from Ogilvy in the UK) has blurbed it, and I respect Rory's recommendations on books. It was good because it recognizes businesses are interdependent, like a human body. His grid lays out 9 areas.

Me atrevo a decir que debido a la carrera que he estudiado fue un libro más complementario con conocimientos que yo ya he adquirido en la carrera y en mi vida laboral y aún así, nunca está de más tener fresco el tema ni mucho menos obtener información extra o desconocida. He logrado sacar muy buenas ideas para la empresa y ...more

Super helpful book. Great way to monitor our company just by using the tools given. Tools also very well positioned makes it even easier to use. Furthermore, The simplicity combine with the clear explaination makes it easy to read and understand.

It also provide a lot of study case from big company. Very practical yet not too basic.

I was doubting this book before purcasing it coz it has only 3 review on. But glad i bought it
