News & Opinion: ChangeThis : The New and The Popular

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 7:11 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

ChangeThis has a new set of manifestos for your consumption. Bob Sutton gives the alternate argument to his best-selling book with a piece titled The Upside of Assholes. Consultant Mark Graban says the things Toyota does to make great cars can help healthcare. Elizabeth Haas Edersheim takes a theme from her book on Drucker and writes about how all Peter's advice still applies. Lonely Planet is Elizabeth Johnson's take on how technology is not really making the quality of our relationships any better. 100 Ways to Kill A Concept (the cover art is worth the look) and Frontline Leadership round out the six manifesto set.
