52 great ideas to help you think like an MBA Graduate
on 28 September 2009
This is a fantastic read for anyone who wants to learn some of the techniques used by the top MBA thinkers. Nicholas Bate has put together 52 bite size chapters that point you in the right direction if you are trying to develop yourself but can't afford the investment or the time for a full blown MBA.
Each chapter is independant, so you don't need to do what I did, and read the whole thing from start to finish - you can dip into a subject that you feel you need to learn more about like 'the value chain' or 'how to create a personal development plan'.
The book is also peppered with great advice from thought leaders like Gary Hamel and Daniel Goleman - along with information on what Bates calls the 'New World of Work drivers' which provide excellent insight into a changing business environment.
Nicholas Bates has an engaging and thoughful writing style (also at his Blog) which is straightforward and easy to digest.
Highly recommended business read.
