Review: Reinvent Your Enterprise by Jack Bergstrand

Reinvent Your Enterprise builds upon the insights of legendary management thinker Peter F. Drucker to help individuals and organizations improve business results better and faster, by leading the next management frontier--improving knowledge work productivity. This breakthrough book is endorsed by The Drucker Institute and has been featured in It fuses extensive research, practical application, and a proven knowledge work productivity management system.

Received from the publicist for review.

I'm particularly partial to business books. I suppose it must be a holdover from my college years. In any case, the discussion in the first chapter of how even a 10% productivity improvement can have stunning results was fascinating.

The footnotes were rather distracting initially, but I became accustomed to them quickly. They aren't excessive, but they're there.

There was a nice quote when the author was discussing Warren Buffet's business success:

Earning this amount of money as a manual worker is impossible because of the physical constraints of manual work.

This one gets three stars. The book was nicely laid out and clearly written, with well thought out and thoroughly explained ideas. It can be rather dry at points, but the extensive use of graphics, tables, and bullet points to illustrate key points was very helpful. Also, while I don't normally consult the glossary, this one had some unique terms which were nicely, and simply defined.

★★☆☆ = Liked It
