Book of Interest: The Future of Management

In "The Future of Management," a book due to be published this autumn by Gary Hamel, our keynote speaker at our WPO Chicago 2006 Conference, he argues that Google's innovations go beyond the fine points of search-engine algorithms -- extending into big, enduring aspects of general management. He believes that Google is committed to building a company that can evolve as fast as the Web.

What do you think?

In the meantime, check out a couple of highlights from the book description on Amazon:
Hamel explains how to turn your company into a serial management innovator, revealing:

• The make-or-break challenges that will determine competitive success in an age of relentless, head-snapping change.
• The toxic effects of traditional management beliefs.
• The unconventional management practices generating breakthrough results in “modern management pioneers.”
• The radical principles that will need to become part of every company’s “management DNA.”
• The steps your company can take now to build your “management advantage.”
Looks like we have to wait until September 10 to find out what else Gary has to say on the hot topic of serial management innovator.
