Descripción del producto
"Six Simple Rules should be mandatory reading for anyone and everyone charged with a corporate management responsibility..."Articulate, practical, insightful, informed and informative... exceptionally well written, organized, presented, and thoroughly 'user friendly'" -- Midwest Book Review "Innovative and instructive, Six Simple Rules merits a place on the bookshelves of all those who aspire to give a new meaning to their management." -- Business Digest (France) "... an interesting book that prescribes some practical solutions to the problems often seen in organisations." -- Irish Times "Six Simple Rules is a management book, but it also a social science book, an important asset because it will assist you in both understanding the people in your organization and what motivates and inspires them." -- 800 CEO READ "an exceedingly interesting book on a very hot topic!" -- Taking Care of Biz Blog (takingcareofbiz.org) ADVANCE PRAISE for Six Simple Rules: Lamberto Andreotti, CEO, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company-- "Applying the rules of this book will help those looking to increase cooperation while also removing complicatedness in their organizations." Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries Limited-- "We do not want best practices; they are not good enough for us. We want the next practices, and that is what the six simple rules are about." Erhard Friedberg, Professor DDr, h.c. emeritus, Sciences Po, Paris; Professor and Senior Advisor, School of Government and Public Policy (SGPP-Indonesia)-- "This book will prove seminal. It shows the essential contribution that good empirical social sciences can bring to management, how social sciences can be used to seriously analyze and change what people do at work, and the amazing results you can then produce." Jorgen Vig Knudstorp, CEO, LEGO Group-- "What the authors call 'complicatedness' is the plague of modern corporations. To simplify is easy, but the cure may be even worse than the disease. What matters is to simplify without ignoring the new complexity of business. You can do it, thanks to the simple rules."
Reseña del editor
New tools for managing complexity Does your organization manage complexity by making things more complicated? If so, you are not alone. According to The Boston Consulting Group's fascinating Complexity Index, business complexity has increased sixfold during the past sixty years. And, all the while, organizational complicatedness--that is, the number of structures, processes, committees, decision-making forums, and systems--has increased by a whopping factor of thirty-five. In their attempt to respond to the increasingly complex performance requirements they face, company leaders have created an organizational labyrinth that makes it more and more difficult to improve productivity and to pursue innovation. It also disengages and demotivates the workforce. Clearly it's time for leaders to stop trying to manage complexity with their traditional tools and instead better leverage employees' intelligence. This book shows you how and explains the implications for designing and leading organizations. The way to manage complexity, the authors argue, is neither with the hard solutions of another era nor with the soft solutions--such as team building and feel-good "people initiatives"--that often follow in their wake. Based on social sciences (notably economics, game theory, and organizational sociology) and The Boston Consulting Group's work with more than five hundred companies in more than forty countries and in various industries, authors Yves Morieux and Peter Tollman recommend six simple rules to manage complexity without getting complicated. Showing why the rules work and how to put them into practice, Morieux and Tollman give managers a much-needed tool to reinvigorate people in the face of seemingly endless complexity. Included are detailed examples from companies that have achieved a multiplicative effect on performance by using them. It's time to manage complexity better. Employ these six simple rules to foster autonomy and cooperation and to effectively handle business complexity. As a result, you will improve productivity, innovate more, reengage your workforce, and seize opportunities to create competitive advantage.Ver Descripción del producto

I'm great I bought it. It's short, easy to read and uses great real examples from companies to illustrate the concepts.
I have to recognize that applying these people and organizational strategies suggested in the book require high doses of courage, but for me they look absolutely logical.
This book tells the truth of many organizations, it's talking about the elephant in the room.
The troubles discussed on the book are completely updated and represent quite good the complex reality of the companies.

That being said, BCG thinks the best way to tackle this issue is by following 6 steps that make complexity go away.
- Understand what others do.
- Reinforce integrators
- Increase total amount of power
- Extend the shadow of the future (I loved this one)
- Increase reciprocity
- Reward those who cooperate (blame is not for failure, it is for failure to help or ask for help).
Useful book. Completely worth it and immersive. Yves Morieux also has a TED talk in which he explains all of this.
This being said, there is nothing simple about the six simple rules except the way they have been named. Both the traditional hard and the soft approaches to management were developed with one similar feature, management was not required to really get involved with and understand how their employees really worked, it was the process or technique that was supposed to provide the answer and if the employee continued to fail it must then be an issue of character or attitude. Six Simple Rules is a "roll up your sleeves and get in the trenches" approach to management, one that calls for manager to engage with both the work they are asking to be done and the people they are asking to do it.
I can tell you this approach works because for over twenty years I have used a similar approach. I did not have the powerful vocabulary that Morieux and Tollman have developed but one thing I am sure they'd be willing to admit, it didn't come to them all at once. Only time can produce insight like you'll find in Six Simple Rules, time and a willingness to set aside everything you know about management and simply see what it talking place in front of you. This book will make the reality at work be a little easier to see. Read it, try it, share it, discuss it. With time you'll be able to practice the rules to an extent that they may in fact become simple.
The book as all BCG authors is with a clear structure and with examples.
