5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for thinking through how to align orgs to strategy, February 12, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: One Strategy: Organization, Planning, and Decision Making (Hardcover)
I only have a handful of business books that I would recommend to others - and this one is definitely high on that list. It's the most cohesive, clear and thoughtful discussion of how to think about getting people in an organization aligned on a strategy, how to structure the organization to support the strategy, how to manage the people in that org in a way that enables them to do their best work against the strategy and how to manage the projects (the execution) related to the strategy.

While the book uses the Windows 7 development effort to accomplish these goals, the content is relevant to any large complex effort that has has multiple internal and external stakeholders and requires the people working on it to have responsibility (and accountability) for the effort.

I found myself highlighting many sections on my Kindle and I expect to go back to it.

Disclaimer: I work at Microsoft but I do not work with or for Steven. I just think is is a particularly good book.
