This review is from: Beyond Budgeting: How Managers Can Break Free from the Annual Performance Trap (Hardcover)
This book makes a strong case for decentralization in business. One of the examples in the book is Svenska Handelsbanken (SHB) which moved beyond budgeting and the fixed performance trap thirty years ago! The change was initiated by SHB's CEO at the time Jan Wallander. I have subsequently found out that he has written several books. One is in english and is about "Decentralization - Why and How to Make it Work". Another is in swedish and has the title "Med den mänskliga naturen - inte mot!" (in english, With the Human Nature - not against!). This book is about how to organize and lead companies. I have put Jan Wallander on my reading list.
