Product description

Review

Six Simple Rules should be mandatory reading for anyone and everyone charged with a corporate management responsibility…"Articulate, practical, insightful, informed and informative… exceptionally well written, organized, presented, and thoroughly 'user friendly'” – Midwest Book Review

“Innovative and instructive, Six Simple Rules merits a place on the bookshelves of all those who aspire to give a new meaning to their management.” — Business Digest (France)

“… an interesting book that prescribes some practical solutions to the problems often seen in organisations.” — Irish Times

Six Simple Rules is a management book, but it also a social science book, an important asset because it will assist you in both understanding the people in your organization and what motivates and inspires them.” — 800 CEO READ

“an exceedingly interesting book on a very hot topic!” — Taking Care of Biz Blog (takingcareofbiz.org)

ADVANCE PRAISE for Six Simple Rules:

Lamberto Andreotti, CEO, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company—
“Applying the rules of this book will help those looking to increase cooperation while also removing complicatedness in their organizations.”

Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries Limited—
“We do not want best practices; they are not good enough for us. We want the next practices, and that is what the six simple rules are about.”

Erhard Friedberg, Professor DDr, h.c. emeritus, Sciences Po, Paris; Professor and Senior Advisor, School of Government and Public Policy (SGPP-Indonesia)—
“This book will prove seminal. It shows the essential contribution that good empirical social sciences can bring to management, how social sciences can be used to seriously analyze and change what people do at work, and the amazing results you can then produce.”

Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, CEO, LEGO Group—
“What the authors call ‘complicatedness’ is the plague of modern corporations. To simplify is easy, but the cure may be even worse than the disease. What matters is to simplify without ignoring the new complexity of business. You can do it, thanks to the simple rules.”
