Product Description

Review

""Joy, Inc. "is a marvelous title, sure. But this masterpiece delivers and delivers and delivers. I beg you to keep taking deep breaths and imagining the world that Richard Sheridan reveals. Then . . . give it the best shot you can. I do truly beg you."

--Tom Peters, coauthor, "In Search of Excellence"


"Redefining management, the way Richard Sheridan did at Menlo Innovations, is a big task. But with the direction and inspiration he provides in "Joy, Inc.," you can tap into your team's trust, enthusiasm, and energy to successfully build your own stronger organization."

--Captain D. Michael Abrashoff, author, "New York Times" bestselling "It's Your Ship"


"Sheridan and his colleagues at Menlo Innovations have created one of the world's most inspiring--and productive--workplaces, and he reveals its secrets in this highly readable and thought-provoking book. "Joy Inc." is about a way of organizing work so logical, so effective, and so rewarding that you have to wonder why everyone doesn't do it. Maybe now they will."
--Bo Burlingham, author, " Small Giants," and editor at large, " Inc." magazine


"Readers who have experienced lean or agile software development may recognize the tools Sheridan used to create a totally different organizational model. But make no mistake--bringing them to life to create a joyful workplace is an act of leadership and teamwork, not implementation." Joy, Inc. "shows us how the right intentional culture, combined with the right systems of management, can bring joy and exceptional business success."

--Jeffrey Liker, author, " The Toyota Way"


""Joy, Inc." is the next step in the evolution of leadership and organization theory. And how appropriate that it comes from Menlo Innovations, the namesake of Edison's 'invention lab.' Sheridan offers not only a manifesto for elevating the soul of organizations but a trail guide from a skilled explorer to help us follow his lead."

--Joseph Grenny, coauthor, "Influencer"


"An amazing book about a stunning idea. Can you deliberately create a corporate culture that challenges every conventional wisdom on how a workplace should and must operate--while simultaneously skyrocketing performance? Sheridan says yes, and outlines how he and his team he did it. It's a riveting story that left me deeply inspired."

--Frans Johansson, author, "The Click Moment," and CEO, The Medici Group

Probably THE best book I've read on technology and running software development teams. Rich is a very good speaker and author, his desire to create Joy in his teams and people who use their software drives all decision making. Some great examples in the book, also reccomend listening to his keynote from Berlin Scrum Gathering.

This is a must read book for anyone who cares about how to make our workplaces better. A fresh and inspirational take on running an organisation that puts its people first whilst still being a serious, commercial organisation.

One of the best books I read last year. Lots of hints on what changes to make to my firm. I never was especially for pair programming but reading the benefits it brings, scaling teams up (and down), I think I'm going to give it a try.
