If the book of the 80's was In Search of Excellence by Peters and Waterman, then book of the 90's was Reengineering the Corporation by Michael Hammer and Jim Champy. We were saddened to hear Michael Hammer died this week at age 60. The best way we can think of to acknowledge his impact is by announcing the inclusion of Reengineering The Corporation in our upcoming book.

In the book The First 90 Days, Michael Watkins talks about how the President of the United States gets 100 days to prove himself, but you are given 90 days in your new job. He states that the first three months can be a make or break time. Watching the inaugural yesterday led me back to this book.
