"Rumor is that Vineet Nayar has invented a whole new way of configuring and
managing an enterprise. I think there's more than a grain of truth to that. I'm on
the verge of the verge of declaring that Mr. Nayar could be the next Peter Drucker."
Author of In Search of Excellence
"Employees are the heart and soul of every company. Vineet Nayar's book tells
the story of how management can step out of the way to let employees lead--
and to let engagement and productivity soar."
"By putting employees first and leveraging the power of social technology,
Nayar and his colleagues have created an organization that encourages extraordinary
contribution from everyone, every day. If you doubt that it's possible to turn the
pyramid upside down--or wonder whether it's really necessary--I urge you to read
this thoughtful and timely book!"
Visiting Professor of Strategic and International Management, London Business School,
and author of The Future of Management
"Vineet Nayar has a revolutionary idea--that business relationships are personal
relationships, and that a successful company will understand and integrate that
philosophy. Nayar's notions of 'trust, transparency, and the romance of tomorrow'
will rejuvenate the corporate soul."
"Vineet Nayar's new book describes his innovative and practical approach to kindling
a fire in employees and moving the social energy of an organization forward. With the
methods described in this book, Nayar enabled his Generation Y 'transformers' to
realize their potential faster, increased the capacity of the organization to create
value for its customers, and built his company into a world leader."
Coauthor of Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done
"This book offers an abundance of advice for business leaders looking to transform
their organizations by changing the culture. Nayar's lesson--that even a 'revolution'
in corporate culture is really just a series of small, achievable steps--will be invaluable
for both the new manager and the accomplished business leader."
