    How to Win Friends and Influence People is a classic, bestselling book that has set the bar for people skills manuals. It should be part of every businessperson's bookshelf, but is also useful for anyone looking to improve relationships.

    Dale Carnegie posits that no matter your occupation, goals, ambitions of position in a company, dealing with people is your biggest challenge. If you learn how to do so effectively, though, you will reap the rewards in profitability, productivity and morale. It's much better to work together with people, rather than against them. Carnegie explains the best way to criticize people, how best to motivate them and how to become a good conversationalist. He urges the reader to be interested in other people, and strive at all times to make a good first impression. Remember people's names, he suggests, and try to avoid arguments at all costs.

    How to Win Friends and Influence People is based on a simple foundation: you cannot change other people, only change the way you relate to them. Dale Carnegie has laid out a watershed blueprint for how to do that.

  • This ebok offers a summary of the book "The Lean Startup" by Eric Ries.

    Why do so many startups fail? The business myth says: A lone entrepreneur - beavering away in a lab or a garage somewhere - through hard work, grit and sheer perseverance develops a great product which then becomes a blockbuster hit. That sounds appealing but the reality is most startups tend to burn through their resources and then disappear because they never get around to seeing what their potential customers think of what they're developing. They worry about the product first and assume customer demand will be there automatically.

    To succeed with a startup, you've got to manage it differently. Instead of developing a business plan, find ways to accelerate your learning and validate customers demand. The best way to do this is to build a prototype (with minimal features) and sell it to some early adopters. Then change the product repeatedly - daily if necessary - and keep supplying your customers with the new and improved versions. Listen to their feedback and use those ideas to make a better version and then get more feedback on that. Keep iterating until you get a fully featured product which your customers love.

    In other words, go through the Build-Measure-Learn loop as often as you can. If you make validated learning the real aim of your startup, you stand a better chance of success. Focus on what customers want, utilize an extremely fast cycle time and take a scientific approach to making decisions. That's the essence of the Lean Startup approach.

    ERIC RIES is an entrepreneur and blog author. He is a cofounder and chief technology officer of IMVU, a virtual community developer. He is also a frequent keynote speaker and is currently entrepreneur-in-residence at Harvard Business School. The Lean Startup methodology has been written about in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Harvard Business Review and the Huffington Post.

  • This work offers a summary of the book «THE LONG TAIL: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More» by Chris Anderson.

    Chris Anderson is editor-in-chief of Wired magazine. He previously worked for seven years for The Economist and six years for Nature and Science magazines.
    In The Long Tail, Anderson demonstrates that the real mother lode of commercial success for twenty-first century businesses will be in multiple-niche marketing rather than trying to score a few mass market hits.

    According to Anderson, a new business model is arising based on the economics of abundance rather than scarcity. This new model rests on the idea it will be better and more profitable to sell a few copies each into a million niche markets than it will be to try and develop one product which you sell two or three million copies. The great success stories of the future will be the companies which are aligned with the long tail of the demand curve rather than those which bring hit products to market.

    In this interesting book, Anderson manages to explain a murky trend in clear language. The Long Tail makes entrepreneurs and the rest of us think about this new business model.

  • This ebook offers a summary of the book "THE CHECKLIST MANIFEST - HOW TO GET THINGS RIGHT" by Gawande.

    When solving problems, it's easy to get caught up in the complexities whilst ignoring the obvious, simple solutions. Atul Gawande suggests that every business sector can take some tips from the commercial aviation industry's emphasis on checklists: «Avoidable failures are common and persistent, not to mention demoralizing and frustrating, across many fields. the volume and complexity of what we know has exceeded our individual ability to deliver its benefits correctly, safely, or reliably. Knowledge has both saved us and burdened us. That means we need a different strategy for overcoming failure. And there is such a strategy - though it will seem almost ridiculous in its simplicity. It is a checklist.» Atul Gawande has case studies in both arenas to demonstrate its brilliant commonsense. We have developed such sophisticated, complex systems, that we cannot prevent error by memory alone. Despite the growth of superspecialisation, steps are sometimes missed, which demonstrates that problems often exist not because of a lack of knowledge, but just because routine can create complacency. One especially compelling case is the construction industry, which by using checklists has reduced building failures to 0.00002 percent: given such statistics, why would any business not follow suit?

  • This ebook offers a summary of «FIRST, BREAK ALL THE RULES», by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman.

    Managing employees productively is exceptionally hard to achieve. It takes a deft touch to be able to balance all the competing interests: the company's, the customer's, the employee's and the manager's own interests to name just a few. Yet some managers consistently do just that, while others flounder and fail.

    Over a 25-year period, the Gallup Organization surveyed employees and managers to try and identify the patterns of success great managers' use. In fact, there emerged four keys that great managers use to draw exceptional performance from those they are responsible for. If these keys to unlocking world-class performance work for the great managers, it makes sense for everyone interested in producing similar results to study these keys and implement them in the context of their own business requirements.

  • Cet ebook propose un résumé du livre "Steve Jobs: La Biographie exclusive" de Walter Isaacson, paru aux éditions JC Lattès.

    Steve Jobs fut un génie et un visionnaire. Quand il décidait de réaliser quelque chose, il ne reculait devant rien pour que cela se fasse.
    Tout au long de sa carrière, son travail se situa à la frontière entre la technologie et l'art. Son esprit, son franc-parler et sa capacité unique de convaincre et de vendre poussaient ses collaborateurs à se dépasser. Même s'ils ne s'en rendaient pas compte à l'époque, les membres de son équipe apprirent à l'apprécier. Sa constante persévérance lui a permis de réaliser son rêve : changer le cours de l'histoire.

    Il croyait que les règles ne s'appliquaient pas à lui parce qu'il était spécial, mais il marqua le monde au fer rouge : l'industrie informatique avec son système complet intégré, l'industrie de la musique avec iTunes et iPod, les médias interactifs avec iPad, les films d'animation avec Pixar et trois générations avec sa vision du futur.
    À l'inverse de ses concurrents, il a toujours préconisé les systèmes complets intégrés au lieu des systèmes ouverts. Il voulait avoir le contrôle sur tout, de la fabrication à la vente.

    C'était un obsessionnel, un maniaque du contrôle permanent. Pourtant, lorsqu'il demanda à Walter Isaacson d'écrire sa biographie, il fut très clair qu'il ne superviserait rien et n'en lirait aucun extrait avant la publication. C'était un paradoxe par rapport à sa personnalité. Il expliqua de manière poignante et fidèle à sa nature foncièrement honnête, qu'il voulait que ses enfants le connaissent et le comprennent malgré qu'il n'ait pas été très présent dans leurs jeunes vies. Peut-être prit-il également cette décision pour expliquer au monde de manière indirecte les raisons qui le firent agir.

  • Dieses E-Book bietet Ihnen eine Zusammenfassung des Buches "Steve Jobs: Die autorisierte Biografie des Apple-Gründers" von Walter Isaacson.

    Steve Jobs war ein Visionär und ein Genie. Wenn er eine Entscheidung traf, setzte er alles daran diese in die Tat umzusetzen.

    Während seiner kompletten Laufbahn arbeitet und lebt er an der Schnittstelle zwischen Technologie und Kunst. Mit seinem Witz, seiner Unverblühmtheit und seiner einzigartigen Fähigkeit zu verkaufen und zu überzeugen, brachte er sein Team dazu, über die eigenen Grenzen hinaus zu gehen. Vielleicht haben wir diese Fähigkeit nicht sofort erkannt, sein Team wird ihn jedoch rechtzeitig dafür zu schätzen wissen. Diese Stärke ermöglichte ihm es seinen Traum zu erfüllen: den Lauf der Geschichte grundsätzlich zu beeinflussen.

    Durch seine Außergewöhnlichkeit glaubte er daran, dass die Spielregeln nicht für Ihn gelten und letztendlich veränderte er die Computer Industrie mit seinen völlig vernetzten Systemen; die Musik Industrie mit iTunes und iPod, die Internet Medien durch das iPad, Animationsfilme durch Pixar sowie drei Generationen mit seinen Visionen für die Zukunft.

    Im Gegensatz zu seinen Konkurrenten präferierte Jobs immer „All-in-one« Système gegenüber offenen Systemen. Dabei bestand er darauf über alles Kontrolle zu bewahren, angefangen von der Herstellung bis zum Verkauf.

    Jobs war ein zwanghafter und beständiger Kontroll-freak. Dennoch war ihm klar, dass er die Arbeit von Walter Isaacson vor der Herausgabe weder beaufsichtigen noch lesen konnte. Dies war in Konflikt zu seinem Charakter. Er erklärte auf beeindruckende Weise und mit seiner grausamen Ehrlichkeit, dass seine Kinder Ihn kennen und verstehen sollen da er in ihren jungen Jahren nicht immer für sie da sein konnte. Vielleicht entschied er sich auch dafür um der Welt auf indirektem Weg seine Entscheidungen zu erklären.

  • Este ebook ofrece el resumen del libro "Steve Jobs: La Biografía" por Walter Isaacson (Debate Editorial).

    Steve Jobs fue un visionario y un genio. Si decidía que algo debía realizarse, entonces luchaba para asegurarse que sucediera.
    Durante toda su carrera, vivió y trabajó constantemente en una intersección entre la tecnología y el arte. Con su ingenio, franqueza y una habilidad única para vender y convencer, llevó a los integrantes de su equipo a superarse a sí mismos. Ellos quizá no se percataron al momento, pero con el tiempo, lo amaron por ello. A través de su persistente intensidad, alcanzó su sueño: cambiar el curso de la historia.

    Él creía que las reglas no le aplicaban pues era especial, pero al final marcó la industria de la computación con su sistema completamente integrado, la industria musical con iTunes y el iPod, los medios de comunicación con el iPad, las películas animadas con Pixar y tres generaciones con su visión del futuro.

    En contraposición a sus rivales, él siempre votó por un sistema integrado todo-en-uno en vez de uno abierto. Él insistió en controlar todo, desde la manufactura hasta las ventas.

    Jobs era obsesivo e un incesante loco del control. A pesar de todo, cuando le solicitó a Walter Isaacson escribir su biografía, fue muy claro en manifestar que no supervisaría o leería siquiera alguna parte antes de que fuera publicada, esto era una paradoja a su personalidad. El explicó de forma conmovedora y fiel a su naturaleza brutalmente honesta, que quería que sus hijos lo conocieran, lo entendieran, aún a través de la parte joven de su juventud en la que él no estuvo presente. Tal vez tomó esta decisión para que él (indirectamente) compartiera con el mundo el por qué de su actuar.

  • This work offers a summary of the book «BLUEPRINT TO THE DIGITAL ECONOMY: Creating Wealth in the Era of E-Business» by Don Tapscott, Alex Lowy & David Ticoll.

    In Blueprint To The Digital Economy, Tapscott, Lowy and Ticoll argue that the digital economy - computers teamed with communication networks - has the potential to transform almost every consumer and business activity. These changes are having the effect of forcing organizations to amend notions and practices about the nature of competition, the process by which wealth is created and even the nature of the firm itself.

    In short, the digital economy changes every assumption ever made in business. It is also allowing completely new commercial entities - like e-business communities which use the digital economy to conduct commercial transactions and collaborate to create new wealth - to flourish and grow like never before. And it is forcing established firms to enter into partnerships and alliances with entirely different and disparate business entities. Clearly, the digital economy opens enormous possibilities and opportunities. The challenge lies in turning the possible into the probable and then into the actual.

    Blueprint To The Digital Economy is the perfect guide you need to get acquainted with the rules of the digital economy.
