News & Opinion: BusinessWeek's Best of 2005: Ideas

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:19 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

BusinessWeek has a special feature on 21 ideas that were really important for 2005. Two of them involved books:

#11 - Chris Anderson and the Long Tail - This book isn't even out yet (expected release May '06), but you can read a lot building up to it on Chris' blog.

#17 - Yvon Chounard and Let My People Go Surfing - BW talks about the book, but they really think Yvon is one to something with the idea of trusting people to manage themselves.
