"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Poor management or just incompetent management compounded by dated practices has a destructive impact on the company and on the economy. The business environment is increasingly competitive and running a business of any size has new challenges, externally, and equally internally with management and employees. The study and practice of management have several initiatives over the last 50 years: Competitive Advantage, Core Competence, Balanced Score Card, Quality, Re-engineering, Innovation, Change Management... and they keep coming. The basic management practices of organizing resources, though, have not changed much since the Industrial Revolution. The internet has exponentially expanded the communication opportunities, so the consumer has greater choice through greater access to information employees. “Entrepreneurship is Management 9.0. Ignite your business by remaking it to compete, cope with change and attract the right leadership talent.”

It is an engaging read, replete with examples, and personally, I find the chapters of “Execution” and “An Epilogue” positioned most appropriately to enable the reader to connect the dots of the rest of the entrepreneurisms and the way they stitch together to form the fabric of the organization. A must read, especially for those that are looking for a simple easy way to structure their thoughts and strategize the actions.
If I had to pick a lacuna, it is perhaps that you did not cover the importance of understanding "local" circumstances including culture and regulations that is vital for those looking at cross border solutions. But then, no way, any book can cover everything. Once again, congratulations on bringing out an excellent "must read" book.
Two chapters literally jumped out to me, which is 'Self-efficacy' and 'Passion'. It certainly made me pause and put some time into thinking about my own work and business.
The authors have brought in valuable and credible information based on their own experience and also the studies they did to gain insights and perspectives from the people who are respected and held in esteem for the contributions and success they have in business. This book is a gem that I would recommend for you to pick up and read. Read again and something new will jump out to you as it did for me.
