An interview with the author on Peter Day's radio program on BBC World convinced me this is worth buying. The UK version is called "What they teach you at Harvard Business School" and the author is fairly skeptical of the MBA concept ... as one probably should be.
"This shit would be really interesting if we weren't in the middle of it." I'm sure this is the same thing an Icelandic economist said about our recent troubles ... Anyway, the Economist calls this a "must read" for those interested in US politics.
Is it just me or do all roads lead to Clayton Christensen? The Harvard Business Review podcast had an interview with CC about "business model innovation" which seems to be what this title is about. An interview on the Business Week podcast sold me this one. (Anyone notice a pattern?)
Heard an interview with the author on the Business Week podcast. The book is about companies but lots of it reminded me of Iceland and the crash (e.g. "Hubris Born of Success", "Undisciplined Pursuit of More"). Now officially on the to-read list.
Clayton Christensen's "Innovator's Dilemma" is one of the best business books I've read, so why haven't I read the sequel already? Will be rectified soon after hearing two recommendations in the past two weeks.
