أيهما أشد خطراً، المسدس أم حوض السباحة؟ ما هي الأشياء المشتركة بين معلمي المدارس ومصارعي السومو؟ لماذا ما يزال تجار المخدرات يعيشون مع أمهاتهم؟ ما هو مقدار اهتمام الوالدين حقاً؟ ما هو تأثير قضية «رو» و«ويد» في جرائم العنف؟ قد لا تبدو هذه الأسئلة مثل الأسئلة النمطية التي يسألها الاقتصادي، لكن ستيفن د. ليفيت ليس اقتصادياً نمطياً؛ إنه عالم شجاع أكثر من أي شيء آخر، يدرس المادة والأحاجي في الحياة اليومية ــ من الغش والجريمة إلى الرياضة وتربية الأطفال ــ وتقوم استنتاجاته عادة على قلب الحكمة التقليدية رأساً على عقب. وغالباً ما يبدأ بتل كبير من المعطيات وبسؤال بسيط لم يطرح من قبل. إنه يهتم ببعض هذه الأسئلة مثل قضايا الحياة والموت، وبعضها الآخر ذو ميزات استثنائية دون شك. وهكذا يحتوي هذا الكتاب على حقل جديد من الدراسة، وهو (الاقتصاد العجيب). ومن خلال سرده للقصص الآسرة ومن النظرة العميقة غير المباشرة، يبين ليفيت وزميله ستيفن ج. دوبنر أن الاقتصاد -في جذوره- دراسة للحوافز ـــ كيف يحصل الناس على ما يريدون أو يحتاجون، لاسيما عندما يريد الناس الآخرون الشيء ذاته أو يحتاجونه. في كتابهما (الاقتصاد العجيب)، يشرع المؤلفان في استكشاف الجانب الخفي ـــ من كل شيء؛ الأعمال الداخلية لعصابة مخدرات، وحقيقة الوسطاء العقاريين، وأساطير تمويل الحملات. وقصص الغش لدى معلمي المدارس. وأسرار جمعية كوكلوكس كلان (العرقية). ومن هنا فإذا كانت الأخلاق تمثل كيف نريد للعالم أن يسير، فإن الاقتصاد يمثل كيف يعمل العالم فعلاً. صحيح إن قراء هذا الكتاب سيتسلحون بقصص وأحاجٍ تكفي لتروى في آلاف الحفلات، لكن كتاب (الاقتصاد العجيب) يستطيع أن يقدم أكثر من ذلك، إنه يعيد تعريف الطريقة التي ننظر بها إلى العالم الحديث تعريفاً حرفياً. العبيكان للنشر

How do venture capitalists pick winners like Apple? How do the FBI's hostage rescue team find agents for the world's toughest job? How do Hollywood casting agents and major sports scouts size up the best talent? There's a huge difference between the very best performers and everyone else; in terms of productivity there's a five-to-one gap. No one can afford to settle for mediocrity. So how do talent scouts in every field identify genius and put it to work? Talking to the world's best, most secretive talent scouts, George Anders found that they all share an intense belief in finding high achievers who can create big successes. These are the arenas where brilliant recruiting is most vital - and in The Rare Find Anders reveals how the rest of us can learn the hidden 'tells' that really matter. Pairing these frontline observations with cutting-edge research from psychiatrists, economists, recruiters and business strategists, Anders shows how anyone can hone the ability to recognize future greatness and discover tomorrow's stars.

How companies can stay competitive in a world of total transparency. With their first book, 1993's The One-to-One Future, Don Peppers and Martha Rogers introduced the idea of managing interactive customer relationships, long before the Web and social networking made it standard business practice. With Extreme Trust, they look to the future once again, predicting that rising levels of transparency will require companies to protect the interests of their customers and employees proactively, even when it sometimes costs money in the short term. The importance of this "trustability" will transform every industry. Retail banks won't be able to rely as much on overdraft charges. Consumers will expect retailers to remind them when they have unused balances on gift cards. Credit card companies will coach customers to avoid excessive borrowing. Cell phone providers will help customers find appropriate calling plans for their usage patterns. Success won't come from top-down rules and processes, but from bottom-up solutions on the part of employees and customers themselves. And the most successful businesses will earn and keep the extreme trust of everyone they interact with

- Which of Apple, Google and Microsoft had an office with a "drawer of broken dreams" - and what (real) objects lay inside it? - When did Microsoft have the chance to catch Google in making money from search - and who vetoed it? - Why did Google test 40 shades of blue on its users? - How long did outside developers wait before asking to write apps for Apple's iPhone after Steve Jobs announced it? - Who said that Microsoft should have its own music player - and why did it fail? The answers, and much more, can be found in this new book by Charles Arthur, technology editor of The Guardian newspaper of London. Digital Wars starts in 1998, when the internet and computing business was about to be upended - by an antitrust case, a tiny start-up and a former giant rebuilding itself. It looks at what are now the three best-known tech companies, and through the voices of former and current staff examines their different strategies to try to win the battle to control the exploding network connecting the world. Microsoft was a giant - soon to become the highest-valued company in the world, while Apple was a minnow and Google just a startup. By February 10 2012, Apple was worth more ($462bn) than both Microsoft ($258bn) and Google ($198bn) combined. The chance had come from tumultuous battles between the three... To win their battles... Apple used design, the vertical model of controlling the hardware and software, and a relentless focus on the customer to the exclusion of others; Microsoft depended on the high quality of its employees' programming skills and its monopolies in software to try to move into new markets - such as search and music; Google focused on being quick, efficient, and using the power of data analysis - not human "taste" - to make decisions and get ahead of would-be rivals. With exclusive information from interviews with people such as Don Norman, former VP of Apple Computer and Pieter Knook, former SVP of the Mobile Communications Business at Microsoft, and many more current and former staff of the three companies - including one person who has worked for all three - Arthur also addresses: - what the inventors of the hard drive used in the iPod thought it would really be used for - how Apple transformed the smartphone market - which of Android or Apple that forced Microsoft to abandon Windows Mobile - what happened to Microsoft's tablet plans - and much more.

I like the title and the structure a lot, it gives a strong feeling of combining strong factual base with concrete advice/principles. There are several aspects that I feel I need to learn more about after reading the first chapter and that I believe is a good sign! - It clearly shows that you are an authority in the field and that you know this broadly and deeply - The references to Branson, Yunus et al are very good and strong proof points, actually I would buy the book just for learning more about their stories from this leadership/work structure perspective. Ericsson, Billing & Customer Care, Sweden Your approach in the book is very practical. This I believe will be most helpful to the practitioner. You have managed to distil theory into good bite size chunks that will be very helpful to someone out in the field. I enjoyed reading it. Overall, I loved it. There are some strong linkages with Semlers 1993 book Maverick. *** Organisational Design: What Your University Forgot to Teach You by Andrew Olivier is an in-depth analysis of Dr. Elliott Jaques's organizational design model. In addition to coining the concept of a "mid-life crisis," Dr. Jaques was both renowned and criticized by his peers in the 1960s and 1970s for organizational models that contradicted the norm and left little room for interpretation. As a business consultant, Olivier states he has successfully applied Jaques's theories to his client companies throughout his career and provides case studies showcasing the model in action. This is no mean feat, as the model is exceptionally dense and layered. It is comprised of seven "key principles," in which four "domains" and seven "work levels" are housed, as well as complexity-based design theory, event sequencing, and time-focused systems. Despite the confusing relationship between the theories, systems, domains, principles, sequences, and levels, the individual concepts are logical, if not banal. For example, Olivier describes the fifth principle on "Empowering Role Relationships" as "agree on authority levels for role relationships and ensure understanding to all stakeholders." Olivier notes that he wanted to write Organisational Design to provide an "entry point into this body of knowledge" because he believes Jaques's work has been unfairly marginalized due to its incompatibility with other organizational design theories. (One detractor quoted here notes that "any theory not open to inclusion with existing theories is doomed to expulsion from the academic ranks.") Standing on its own, Jaques's seven work levels, providing a map for building an organization's personnel structure, is Indeed useful. And Olivier's table on page 27 breaking down each level's goals and Suggested timeframe is worth reviewing. But while his enthusiasm for both the model and man are apparent, Olivier generally fails to dissect the complicated approach in a manner that will be accessible for those unfamiliar with Jaques's work. His book may be valuable for advanced organizational psychologists but is not recommended for novice and intermediate design specialists. -Blueink Review
