Book News Reviews
Formerly with the Harvard Business School, Linder has years of executive experience in the technology industry; she now works as a consultant in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Based on 145-plus interviews of everyday, frontline managers, she reports findings from a study of 46 wildly successful initiatives produced by these everyday people when they chose to step outside the practice of conventional management. She identifies five characteristics linking each of the 46 initiatives, and uses case studies and examples from an array of organizations to demonstrate how readers in business and management might utilize the concepts to achieve exceptional results in their own organizations.
