The Individualized Corporation

A Fundamentally New Approach to Management – Great Companies are Defined by Purpose, Process and People

by Sumantra Ghoshal and Christopher a. Bartlett

from the back of the book: Based on six years of research and hundreds of interviews with managers at every level of executive at companies such as Intel, ABB, Cannon, 3M, and McKinsey… explores the collapse of an outmoded corporate form and reveals the emergence of a fundamentally different management philosophy – one that focuses on the power of the individual as the driver of value creation in the company and the importance of individuality in management.

I didn’t have a chance to flag this book as I read it, but it is one that I would like to re-read as it is rich with example and paradigm-shifting ideas.
