Best business book ever,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of Action: How Leaders Close the Gaps between Plans, Actions and Results (Hardcover)
This is a fascinating read - a superb bringing together of business leadership theory with the military equivalent. As I read it, I kept on excitedly spotting things that need to be improved in the organization in which I work. It goes beyond the trite business management fare and reveals that between "leadership" and "management" there is a much more important facet called "direction" - which makes excellent sense. The book offers many other similar insights that has greatly helped me to understand how organizations should thrive, and how to enthuse everyone to contribute.
It is also very engagingly written - Mr Bungay is also a great story teller, and so unusually for a management book, it leaves you wanting to keep turning its pages. His two historical books are also excellent reads too, and very revealing of the underlying strategic issues about how those battles were fought and won.
Not only is it the best business book I've ever read, it is the only one I've ever finished!
