Further Up the Organization: How to Stop Management from Stifling People and Strangling Productivity Reviews
If you're a manager, read this book. If you're a staff employee, read this book. If you're a bureaucrat, paper-pusher, VP or CEO, run far away from this book, because you're the problem.Amazing that Townsend wrote this book in 1970 and revised it in the early '80s -- and despite the fact that it was a best-seller the first time around and is now considered a business classic, it remains ignored by most in the business/executive community. (Because when it's your ox that's being gored ...) I wonder what Townsend, who died in the mid-'90s, would make of these days of huge executive-staff pay disparities and Wall Street weasels. He'd probably start a company and never take it public.It depresses me that so little of the book's recommendations have become commonplace, but that's human nature for you: look out for No. 1, and screw everyone else.
