About the Author
Top customer reviews
I find the structure of the book suitable to its purpose; it's at the intersection between a rigidly structured work and a story: So they are stories organized according to a specific structure.
Knowledge in Business Administration is sometimes required to fully grasp some insights of the book though this doesn't prevent from arriving at an honorable understanding of the subject matter. The book is also abundant with some by-products insights that any would-to-be businessperson will find useful.
I recommend it!
The values driving the latest generation of MBAs are hard to define but certainly shifting beyond simply providing financial returns to shareholders. I think this book is an admirable effort to place a stake in the ground regarding the most important trends for future government and business leaders to focus on.
Touching on a variety of timely subjects--globalization, technology, learning, sustainability, etc--Passion & Purpose creates a new and refreshing dialogue illustrating those merging individual passions with innovative business leadership. I found the stories and people profiled both moving and inspiring.
