The notion that business-as-usual no longer cuts it is certainly not new. Guru's like Tom Peters, and more recently Seth Godin, have been shouting this message for years.
What the Freiberg's do very well is combine this notion with sound self-empowerment advice which is certainly needed in order to have the courage to challenge the status quo that exists in so many entities.
Here is the conundrum for managers who heed their advice. With the dramatic changes going on in the market, never has there been a greater need for radical change in every industry, and in almost every company. BUT, with the downsizing that is going on, never has it been a riskier time to be popping-off to ones boss about the needed change. Very tricky!
For entrepreneurs, or entrepreneurial managers, this is a terrific book. For managers stuck in a dinosaur company, I would think one would want to be very careful about how one implements the strategies outlined in this book. The latter is not a fault of the book as much as it as a function of the fact that the times have changed dramatically since the book's publication last year.
I enjoyed this book and look forward to following the Freiberg's work and writings more closely. Their main message is one that resonates well with my own beliefs about how our country needs couragous business and political leaders who are willing to challenge,and change, the staus quo.
