Item description for The Stone-Age Company: Why the Companies We Work for Are Dying and How They Can Be Saved (Truth About Business) by Sally Bibb...

Hard hitting and focused in its attack, this warning shot of a book stands out with its message that those companies that refuse to change their basic, long-held operating strategies will not survive in the rapidly changing world of work. The business hierarchy that seeks to monitor and control workers' methods and output is outmoded, the text claims, and must be changed even at the risk of hurting those who have always benefited from hierarchical arrangements: the executives and managers. The book further argues that current managing techniques stifle the ability of people and organizations to grow. With innovation and creativity thus inhibited, the days of a company that will not change are numbered. There is a solution, however, and the chapters offer ways to keep talented employees, serve shareholders, and base business practices in growth rather than efficiency and control. A detailed case study puts a real-life spin on the theories and choices explained within the pages, strongly making the case that only companies willing to reenvision themselves now will have a place in tomorrow's business landscape.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Stone-Age Company: Why the Companies We Work for Are Dying and How They Can Be Saved (Truth About Business)?

From Frustration to Inspiration  Feb 2, 2006
I found Sally's book so easy to read and so closely related to my own experiences of working for 'Stone Age' companies. I am retired but I feel that I would have enjoyed being able to try and turn things around armed with the inspiration provided within this book. I am very tempted to send copies of it to some of my previous managers but I feel that they are so 'Stone Age' in their outlook that the words would fall on stoney ground. A truly inspirational read for all those who are creative in their approach and open to change.
