MAVERICKS AT WORK Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win

by | Read by Barrett Whitener

Business & Finance • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

In today's business climate, organizations with conventional hierarchies and staid business processes are giving way to maverick organizations that serve customers creatively by breaking the rules. Barrett Whitener sounds informed, but he reads with less energy than one expects of a book on revolutionary business practices. What saves the audio is authoritative writing that offers the perfect combination of abstract ideas and concrete (though impersonal) illustrations. The focus is business practices, philosophy, and culture rather than heroes or personalities. It's ultimately a lesson for chess players and bean counters, not artists or visionaries. But while the authors never escape the language of human resources technocrats, it's fascinating to hear how much they know about hiring and developing managerial talent.
